I have a cold. If you know me well enough you may know that I am pathetic when I am sick. I have been fighting this cold since Friday. By Saturday afternoon I was crying out for the Cold & Flu tablets, but being in a country town, nearly all shops are closed between 1pm Sat and 8.30a Monday, so Ian had my whinging until today.
This weekend was good despite my infirmed state. Our Church had a team from Idaho (USA) here for just over a week to help us minister to the community (and to challenge us in the process). God really worked through this team. We have had a lot of non-Church kids in the community respond positively to this group. Any prayer that seeds would be sown in these young people would be greatly appreciated.
On Sat night we had a huge "Aussie Bonfire" at a local farm for the Idaho team. It was such a good night. We had several people make interesting utensils to toast marshmallows on. It's events like this that make living in the country not so bad for a city chick like me!
I also found out a few days ago that Nana has been moved to a Nursing home. It doesn't seem that long ago that she was taking me on bus trips to Manly, Bondi and the like. I guess that time doesn't stop for anyone.
