Late nights, early mornings, & long days :)

A Double-Barrel Man of God has informed me that I have not made a post for a while.

In part that is because things have been pretty busy recently, and amazingly, when we are almost to the peak of the busy-ness, here I am writing a post! So, what has been keeping me, and everyone around me, so busy?

Testimonies from the FTTL Autumn 2011 First-Term Trainees

The Full-Time Training in London (FTTL) restarted on Monday 8th August, and the trainees are now going into their third week of term. How time flies! (And here’s a cool post related to time: Infinity within Finite Beings).

It seems like I was only just telling you about the FTTL Spring 2011 graduation, yet that was a few months ago. On the same note, this evening I was emailing a friend from university, as well as chatting to a Christian sister on Gmail, and in both conversations I was reminded that it is now more than four years since my graduation from the Full-Time Training in London.

That means I am now going into my fifth year of serving the Lord. Wow!

When I put it like that, it sounds so long, and yet… it really hasn’t felt like a long time, a suffering, or a drag. Instead it has been a real joy and delight, and a real learning and growing with the Lord. I love the Lord, and I love the church, and although I am very open for any change the Lord may bring, at this present moment in time, I am very happy in my service. Amen, more of You Lord, each day! :)

But now, let’s get back to this term!

A brief interlude to say…

The European Young People’s Camp in Poland begins today!

L and I flew out early to Warsaw, to join the saints in preparing for the camp registration, office, and other practical things. We had a sweet time with the saints both in Warsaw, and on our way down via Krakow to Male Ciche, where we are now. Hopefully I’ll write more about that some time next week!

The camp starts very soon, and some of the dear saints have already arrived, with the majority arriving throughout the day today. Please pray for the arrivals and registration – this is the first time we are going to try to check-in each person individually rather than in groups, and we’re talking 465 in the two main conferences, and approximately 100 more for the family camp! Lord, bring each one safely to the camp!

And also pray for the weather and all the saints – it is forecast to rain most of the week, which can be very inconvenient, but that’s no reason to stop enjoying the Lord!

I am helping with the registration today, and then will be with a cluster of young people in the camp during the week, which is on Crucial Aspects of God’s Economy Portrayed in Exodus (1).

Until next week.. praise the Lord!

Yobel!

Well, where do I begin? So much has happened this past week, and with both L and A away, I was particularly busy manning reception whilst also taking care of my other work*. Yet surprisingly, although I really shouldn’t be surprised, I have been happy and full of rest all week, really enjoying the Lord’s grace. :) Yes, today it was more of a struggle to wake up before 6am, for the 5th day this week, but at the same time I have been enjoying my time with the Lord in the morning, throughout the day, and before going to bed.

Consecration and Duty

I’ve been super busy recently, hence the lack of promised updates – they are still coming! It seems to have been one thing after another – not in a negative sense, just that it is pretty constant! But.. I’ve been able to spend some major chunks of time on major projects, which I think is actually much better for my psychological well-being than doing bits here and there. (I read an article recently which was proposing that multitasking isn’t actually very healthy.) Anyway, there is still much on my plate, but as I stop for the day, I thought I would share a few things I have been gently mulling over in the past 24 hours…
