We've had quite a busy weekend which has been a lot of fun. On Friday Dean joined our youth group again as he's wanting to get to know the younger guys in church and maybe get involved with the youth. He's really impressed by our youth and the leaders who serve so diligently.
On Saturday we went to the Helderberg Nature Reserve (again). This particular visit marked a change in what we do there as the boys really wanted to 'walk up the mountain'. We managed a 40 minute walk with them but it was a really good walk and the boys were very tired afterwards. Hooray!
In the evening we joined Daniel for his 40th birthday party which was a great evening. We really enjoyed catching up with some good friends who we haven't seen for quite a while.
This morning we had the privilege of having john & Sue Hosier joining us at Grace Community Church. John preached from Ephesians chapter 1 and Dean was particularly impressed by the way John was able to preach a very solid sermon without the aid of notes. How he longs to have that kind of skill. Afterwards we were joined for lunch at our house by John & Sue as well as Daniel & Zelda and Melvyn & Yolande. We had a lovely lunch and a good laugh together.
