Nick started his brand new series on Romans this morning with a BANG! His enthusiasm for the book was evident and we are looking forward to getting into this very meaty and well-seasoned epistle. You can listen to the sermon on the MRBC website (click on the link on the right hand side of the page to get there). Dad surprised us all by waving his arm madly in the air while Nick was leading the service, to ask if he could just say a few words. His heartfelt thanks to the congregation for their love and hospitality were nearly dry-eyed but just not quite!
After the pm service we joined the Phillipses at the Botha's home for a
last supper of pancakes. Watched a bit of an Afrikaans gospel DVD which
was pretty amazing. Mom said she couldn't have thought of a better way
to spend their last night in NZ! I concur. I think we may have been a
bit mopey if we'd been hanging around our house.
