Church Camp

This week­end was the St Matts annu­al church camp.

This is what our week­end looked like:

Well.… actu­al­ly.…

We haven’t been to Philip Island before, so enjoyed mak­ing the “quick” 2 hour dri­ve down there (if you’re in Adelaide here’s a reminder of how lucky you are to have Victor Harbor and Burra so close!). Fortunately we didn’t get stuck in the Tough Mudder traf­fic too much and made it on time for the first ses­sion on Saturday morn­ing. We only stayed for the day, but enjoyed two talks on Revelation by Mark Stephens (aca­d­e­m­ic dude from NSW) he was an excel­lent preach­er and gave us plen­ty to mull over. In the after­noon we enjoyed spend­ing time with peo­ple from church and get­ting to know them a lit­tle bet­ter. I made some more Adelaide con­nec­tions (one of my favourite past-times) and hope all my TNE friends will wel­come my new friends to church this Sunday!
Here’s a thought from camp to leave with you:

The bible is a sto­ry of what God does with a bro­ken creation…Who will put cre­ation back togeth­er again? God will!”

This week is the last week of term 1! We can’t believe it has gone by so quick­ly. We are look­ing for­ward to spend­ing Easter with fam­i­ly and get­ting some super study done over the break.

Please pray with us this week:
-Praise God for an excit­ing start to the year and for great truths learnt
-Pray for us and friends in Adelaide as we feel the dis­tance
-Pray for ongo­ing devel­op­ment of rela­tion­ships here in Melbourne, that these will be mutu­al­ly encour­ag­ing and glo­ri­fy­ing to God.
