We would love to keep everyone up to date regularly with what we’re up to, probably more so once we get to Africa. Life here isn’t always that exciting and I’m sure you don’t really want to hear how many loads of washing I’ve done this week, but I’ll give it a go anyway. I’ll include some general remblings about where we’re at and also try to condense it into some weekly prayer points. It would be so awesome if you could take that to your homegroup or just use it yourself.
The last few weeks have been pretty busy for us. Last week Cam and I spent the week in Melbourne at the Global Interaction Head Office doing our Partnership Preparation course. It was a pretty special time, hanging out with a whole bunch of people who are really passionate about “Empowering communities to develop their own distinctive ways of following Jesus.” We learnt a lot, it made my brain hurt. Everyone was so encouraging and keen to hear our story. While we were there we celebrated our 10 year anniversary! Great times.
The kids stayed in Perth with Aunty Vet & Uncle Leigh, then Gran and Grandad. They did pretty well until Friday arvo when they both fell in a bit of a heap. They wouldn’t let us out of their sight for a few days when we got home but they’re settling back down now. Cam was only home for three days before heading back over east for work, so the kids and I are winding up the last week of term 3 on our own.
The the most exciting news to share this week is that we’ve decided that taking two small children to Africa is no where near challenging enough – so we’re going to take 3! Little bub is due on April 4th 2011 and all is looking good so far (12 weeks).
I’m so excited for you and sad, about everything, the Africa blog which makes it so real that your actually going, and the baby news but that also means your taking another one of my little neices/nephews away and I wont get to watch them grow as closely! I hope you can add heaps of photo’s! So glad you started a blog, when your away at least I want to hear every detail!! Love you so much, Liz xx
