You may have noticed I have been on Holiday.

Bin Chillin for a couple of weeks ...

Week one was spent with our best mates in Derby , Paul & Ali , Matt & Sammy ...

I was the official chef for the week managing to give my mate Paul a touch of the trots towards the end of the week !!!

Life is tough for our much loved friends at the moment , they fully understand what it is to live out the biblical truth found in the Book of Romans 8 v17 " Now if we are children we are co-heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ , if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may share in His glory"

They are all suffering but thanks be to Jesus , they have hope..... a hope that is everlasting

During the week Matthew reached the grand old age of 17 ..and now has his own set of wheels ..and a very expensive insurance policy :-(

After Derby we headed off to Scotland to spend three days with friends from bygone years , Jerry ( the Snist ) , Helen , Hannah , Jo & Katie .

Loch Lomand was the location or rather an island on Loch Lomand called Inchmurrin .
We had a great time ..with a good few laughs ..especially when my less than light body almost managed to capsize the jetski !!

A few words and phrases that I will remember ...( you won't understand this next bit if you weren't there ..

"Oh Yes Jerry ...Oh no Jo !!"
"It's flat " .... "No! its ripley"
"There's a Black.. Bird on the tree " :-)
"She looks like she needs the toilet !!!

As I said you had to be there ...

For the final few days we headed south to Eastbourne and had a wonderful sunny time ,courtesy of "The Wrights" ... The girls caught up on their shopping in Brighton ...Oh the joys of being in a house full of women !!
Bad Hair day on the beach !!

Tiring ..But Worth it

" Let us not become weary in doing good , for at the proper time we wil reap a harvest if we do not give up" Galatians 6:9

Its been a wonderful week , if not very tiring ( i'm getting old !!) 232 kids heard the Gospel this week & 250 folk crammed into the church for the parents evening last night .

Now it's on to next years planning .....We will be celebrating fourty years of Holiday Bible Club in Wem next year....
