life and stuff

Yesterday was a bus busy busy day at work, I had a meeting from 8am-12.30pm with a 'Fundraising Company' who are helping us out with the do's and do not's of fundraising. The guy who owns the company is American and he comes out every 3 months to meet with his Aussie clients, so yesterday was our first meeting with him. He has a team in Australia who heads up the Aussie leg of his company. We started working with them a few months ago and it's been really exciting learning so many things from them, then on the camp on the weekend away we just had - the Aussie manager who we work most closely with he was there on the camp with his church too what a small world... Anyhoo, I am excited to see how God might use their knowledge and skills to help our ministry... I know that God can do immeasurably more than we could ever imagine and he actually doesn't even need a fundraising company to help but maybe this is his means to train and equip us.

Last night was bible study, we had a really good night we finished the book of 2 Thessalonians. SP did a great job of leading us through it and it was a delight to have the new people I was talking about in a previous post join us. They have experience and insight and it was great to be able to share that. Our church has a lot of young people, early 20s to early 30s so it is lovely to have a slightly older couple to listen too, SP and I would be considered one of the 'older' couples in our church..... I love our bible study group... One of the girls in our group who we have been driving to church, bible study and church camp gave us a little present last night for driving her around - how sweet. She has a detached retina (YOUCH) nearly 6 weeks ago so after surgery wasn't allowed to drive.

Today is......... 'Thursday Day Off' day and I am going to have my hair cut - WOO HOOT!!! Not short though! Will post a pic if is is worth posting, just depends what she does... Also Adventure Club starts back today - I can't wait to see the kids. Please pray that God may bring back lots of kids especially new ones and the ones that weren't around last term.

LOL I was trying to be 'arty'. So arty in this case = doesn't equal happy.
