Easter Break

This week­end marks the end of our Easter break and ‘read­ing week.’ After fin­ish­ing term 1 in a flur­ry of assign­ments, it has been nice to sit back and have a bit of time off as well as time to catch up on some impor­tant study.

We enjoyed hav­ing fam­i­ly from Canberra stay­ing with us over Easter. Gill’s sis­ter and her fam­i­ly and Gill’s par­ents came to Melbourne for the week­end. We went to the zoo togeth­er (as you can see I par­tic­u­lar­ly liked see­ing the giraffes) and had an all round good time with them. It was love­ly to have a big get togeth­er with all the Melbourne fam­i­ly on Easter Sunday, and also hav­ing the chance to meet our new cousin, Lachlan who was born the week before Easter.

 

On Friday we enjoyed hav­ing a ‘date day’ as we cycled around the Yarra, it remind­ed us a lot of Linear Park in Adelaide, but instead of end­ing up at Henley Beach, the ride fin­ished in the city and then we looped home. You can see some of our ride (com­plete with pho­tos) here. We didn’t fig­ure out the GPS track­er until we had already start­ed!

The rest of this week has been tak­en up with study and catch­ing up with our­selves. Chris has been work­ing on his Greek trans­la­tions for term 2 and Gill has been writ­ing an essay about the the­ol­o­gy behind the sac­ri­fi­cial sys­tem in Leviticus. Here’s a sum­ma­ry of Gill’s essay:

As you can see, it was a full on essay to write! What a priv­i­lege though to have the time and oppor­tu­ni­ty to think in detail about how Leviticus is rel­e­vant to our faith!

This week we will start term 2! How quick­ly the year has already gone. It looks to be a busy term ahead, so we appre­ci­ate your prayers and sup­port as we go through it day by day.

Praise God with us for:
-An excit­ing term 1 of Bible College
-A love­ly Easter break with the oppor­tu­ni­ty to catch up with fam­i­ly
-The safe and healthy arrival of our cousin Lachlan

Please pray with us for:
-Diligence and con­cen­tra­tion as we go into term 2
-Provision of ongo­ing work for Gill as she keeps seek­ing out oppor­tu­ni­ties
-Wisdom as we seek the best ways to main­tain rela­tion­ships with you guys!
