We had a great day on Sunday which started with an excellent morning service in church. The worship had a real sense of expectation in it which lifted the whole service, brilliant! Also, as part of the service 10 new members were welcomed into the church. This was particularly exciting for us as 3 folk from Chris Nissen were welcomed into membership, they were Michael, Cynthia and Yolanda. This is a real testimony to the impact we're having as a church in the community and we really praise God for this!
After church we had some friends for dinner, we've resolved to make more effort in this area, so it was great to have Brian & Laurie with Rebecca and Joel (another one) for the afternoon. It was great to chat and spend time together and the kids entertained each other which was a real blessing. Joel is gradually getting better at sharing his toys which is a relief. Joel & Rebecca also enjoyed racing on their black bikes and playing on the swings.
The real downer at the moment is Dean's bronchitis, please pray for healing as he's going to have to be of the whole week and could really do without it.
