Last night we officially left HCC. To a certain extent it was a mere formality and a box ticking exercise. It certainly wasn't an event we were keen to attend. Not because we'd done anything wrong but simply because we've moved on and are already seeing God at work in our lives and in Macassar and we're really excited about the future! To return to HCC and dredge up the past simply wasn't an exciting prospect. The event itself was very weird, we'd been invited to attend as it would be a chance for the church to thank us for our four years of service, but after being called to the front and told they wanted to honour us, Dean was handed the microphone and asked to thank HCC. Neither of us can remember what I said (I didn't swear at least) but one of our friends said I was very gracious - phew! Besides one of the elders dropping a clanger about his forthcoming colonoscopy, the highlight for us was the fact that our best friends in the church sat with us in support of us and Daniel & Zelda (from Grace Communtiy Church, Macassar) also came. We felt very honoured by them.
