Annual Family Camp time again - we do look forward to this time away with our church folk and Grace Baptist Church fellowship. This year we booked a campsite in Akaroa, just over an hour out of Christchurch to the south east (the elbow of the south island). Spectacular scenery on the mountainous drive down - we couldn't help but comment on how much like St Helena it looked. It's a wonder Nick didn't start waving at passing cars as per the Saint custom! Our speaker, Conrad Mbewe, came all the way from Zambia where he currently pastors the Kabwata Baptist Church. His ministry was excellent - very challenging, on the theme of being a missions-minded church. And we loved his Zambian accent - very easy on the ears!
