A glorious goodbye
Nick was asked, somewhat unexpectedly, to take a funeral today. He had not met the matriarch who has gone home to glory, but through her last pastor got to know her as a godly lady who loved the Lord and was of much use in His service. It was a very small gathering as she had not long been in Timaru where she stayed with her daughter and son-in-law, and Nick was under strict instructions to preach the gospel as "this is what Mum would have wanted". It was truly a lovely service. We were invited to join a few of the folk at the Shearer's Quarters for a light lunch afterwards which we gladly did.
