Just a quick note to Phil . Didn't want to let the day go without mentioning again that I actually beat you at Racquetball this morning .

Not that I am one to boast or anything :-)

The Laundry Girls .....

Katie and the rest of the Wem Stage Door players competed in the semi-final of the all England Theatre club competition over in Burton on Trent .
They were all brilliant and we who went to see them were all very proud of their achievement on the day .. Sadly they didn't make it to the final coming runners up but that doesn't matter . They were a credit to all the people who put the production together . Well done guys .

BBQ at shells

BBQ at shells
Originally uploaded by whiteway
Tonight I spoke at the YPF BBQ at shells house . Being an Australian she is an expert at this kind of cooking ...

I talked about those Christians in days gone by who became their own barbeque . Burnt at the stake in our country just 500 years ago for believing what I and many others believe about Jesus Christ .

It's a challange to all those who profess faith in Jesus Christ to stand up and be counted and not to be afraid of the consequences ..

Read Daniel 3 :16-18 ..

Anyway I managed to follow up the sausages with a jammy doughnut ... can't be beaten ;-)

Sponsored Event Ideas ?

Anna is going to South Africa at the end of June with OM for two weeks and then onto an Aids orphanage called Morning Star for a further two weeks ..She is travelling with Abi .
We are trying to think of an appropriate sponsored event that would raise funds for the trip . I suggested they both shave their hair off ...but for some reason she didn't like that idea :-)

If you have any bright ideas then send me an email of add a comment to this post ...

Great Song ....

A slipped disc .....

Well Gill has finally succumbed to her bad back . She has been in agony for over a week now and finally gave in and went to the Doc ... the diagnosis was a slipped disc . So she will be out of action for a while . The big question on every ones lips is will I be able to cope ? Now can anyone tell me where the thing called the washing machine is ;-).

People just don't believe me when I tell them that I really am quite domesticated . Need to go now and order the takeaway :-)

Back Pain ...

Gill (alias cinderella) was scrubbing the kitchen floor yesterday morning when I heard a loud scream ... Her back had gone . Now for those of you who have had back trouble you know the pain .

So yesterday she spent most of the day lying on the bedroom floor popping Ibuprofen :-) . I of course have been the best nurse possible . Full of sympathy and kind words ;-) . I even emptied the washing machine and put the clothes on the line yesterday as well as doing her boiled egg on toast for lunch :-)

Anyway I do hope she recovers quickly as the kitchen floor didn't get finished .... Oh I will be in so much trouble for this post :-)

Birthdays & BBQ

Good couple of days with family and friends . On Saturday night we celebrated three birthdays in the family by dining out at a Greek restaurant . Jane , Anna & Naomi all celebrated and about 18 of us gathered to help them ... Great night .Great Friends ,Great Family ;-)
All the photos from the night are on facebook HERE

Yesterday was another blessed day at Wem . Both services morning and evening were special . We seem to be seeing more and more new people each week . Which shouldn't be a surprise as we have been praying for this every Saturday morning for the last 3 years ....

The evening ended well with our first BBQ this year accompanied of course by the chimenea (I love my chimenea) ...Beefburgers a glass of wine and music from Ludovico Einaudi . Great way to end the Lord's day .

Again more Photo's over on Facebook ..HERE
