A week of nights

It’s my last week of work this week, and then I’ll say good­bye to the Lyell Mac, good­bye to my Adelaide friends and good­bye to Adelaide. I have the priv­eledge of spend­ing my last week at work on nights.

Last week­end we enjoyed a break down at CMS Summer Encounter con­fer­ence. We were chal­lenged to con­sid­er how we live as Christians when tri­als come and encour­aged to remem­ber that God is faith­ful and work­ing in all cir­cum­stances. We also enjoyed spend­ing some time togeth­er at the beach and dream­ing about the year to come. On Sunday after­noon we enjoyed a friend’s wed­ding, and then were pleased we could spend some time with good friends for the rest of the long week­end.

Chris head­ed back to Melbourne on Tuesday morn­ing to con­tin­ue prepar­ing the house and get­ting ready for his Hebrew inten­sive, while I get to stay in Adelaide and do night shift. It’s been hard to con­cen­trate on work this week, but I have enjoyed get­ting to know anoth­er col­league well and also to say good­bye to Adelaide a bit more slow­ly.

This evening I got to go to a friend’s first birth­day par­ty before work — so much fun! I actu­al­ly missed most of the par­ty but loved enjoy­ing din­ner with good friends. I also enjoyed the pre-night shift cof­fee as you can see!

 

 So now, just 2 more night shifts, then a few days of pack­ing up and say­ing final good­byes, and I will be off to Melbourne with my mum.

Please pray for good farewells, safe trav­el­ling and no stress for me.

Chris starts his Hebrew inten­sive on Monday. I think it is going to be very intense! Please keep him in your prayers, espe­cial­ly as he hasn’t got me around to laugh at when he needs a break 🙂
