After such a lovely day out on Sat. it was hard to come back to reality on Sunday. Jared had to preach in Morwell on Sunday, so off we went for a 9.30 service. On the way I was stunned to see how dry, the normally green grass that we grew to know so well, is a golden brown; So dry. Afterward we visited our Grandparents at Buln Buln, and was shocked to see black patches within walking distance to their house and Jared’s brother’s house. We thank God, that He kept them safe. Jared’s brother has now bought a pump, and heavy duty fire hoses…perhaps he wasn’t that prepared after all? I haven’t taken any photos, I felt too morbid to take them.
Today was a day of encouragement. Our homeschooling group had a yound chap “T” and his soon to be wife talk to us about their work in China. What a blessing it was. This guy is 25, has no material possesions, because he walks around sharing the good news where some missionaries have never been. He taught the children some basic colours, then played a game with them. Then he taught them a song in Manderine, then he explained how a lot of the Chinese characters actually have the Bible stories written within them. How cool is that?
We also did our Keepers at Home course today, I’ll show you what we did tommorow.
On a differant note, if you could remember us in prayer for the next few days, I would appreciate it. We had a fire in The Basin today lasting three hours, it is still actually going, although they consider it safe?????? I am so thankful to God for our home, I hope that His mercy will be upon us, and He will keep us safe. We need rain, as Australians I really think we all need to bow our knees and humble ourselves and pray to the one who controls the weather. God have mercy on us.
