Fly-Swatting in Baarlo, The Netherlands

October 17th, 2011 Categories: reporting..., serving... 10 comments

Hello everyone! How terrible that my first post of the month is on the 17th! If you have been looking for other good blogs to visit in between my sporadic posts, then here are a sampling of some I try to keep up with:

And now, on with my own post…

Serving in the heavenly team

So, this time last week, we were on the road back from Kasteel de Berckt in Baarlo, The Netherlands, after serving for a week at the ITERO (International Training for Elders and Responsible Ones). This was my first time serving at an LSM (Living Stream Ministry) event, and also my first time serving with transportation, so I thought I’d tell you a little bit about it! I really enjoyed serving with our little “transportation team”, and with the other saints there also. We were all learning together!

If you have been keeping an eye on the news, you will have heard about the riots taking place in London, which also spread to other UK cities. Actually, this brings together a few of the items I had been planning to mention, although not with the focus I had originally intended. I hope I have the utterance to convey this now.

Day 12: The end of the Summer Blending Trip

Day 12 (Lord’s Day 3rd July 2011)
We ended the blending trip on Day 12 with a sweet time with the church in Irvine, going with our hospitality to the Lord’s table meeting (which meant we went to different districts). Following that, we had pizza at the B’s, had a little bit of time to fellowship and pray about the upcoming Summer Training, and then the group split again either shop, swim or rest at home. At this point, three of our group were returning back to the UK, so it was also goodbye to them.

Day 3: Shining Stars

Day 3 (Friday 24th June 2011)
With our whole group present and correct (the final five had arrived the evening before), we started our day with some singing and enjoyment. This one was a new song for me, and one we enjoyed very much:

Christ is our light, our food, our air;
He’s everything we’ll ever need.
Christ is our drink, our life, our way,
If in our being, He’d be freed.

1. Sisters: You say He’s mighty God.
Brothers: I say He’s man.
Sisters: Son, Spirit, Father all,
All: He’s rich, O so rich, when we call.

2. Brothers: He’s Son of righteousness,
Sisters: Hope, peace, and faith,
Brothers: The Lamb of God is He,
All: So call on Him now, don’t you wait.

3. Sisters: You say He’s Son of God,
Brothers: And Son of Man,
Sisters: Firstborn among the dead,
All: Firstborn of creation, AMEN!

4. Brothers: Our Lord’s the great I AM,
Sisters: The start, the end.
Brothers: Alpha, Omega,
All: Lord Jesus, come quickly, AMEN!

Day 2: We love the church-life!

Day 2 (Thursday 23rd June 2011)
After yesterday’s UCLA day (University of California Los Angeles), day 2 was a USC day (University of Southern California), another university in LA. We met some of the USC Christians on Campus students who gave us a tour of campus, had lunch nearby, and then went to the science centre and watched the IMAX 3D show about the Hubble Space Telescope. It was fascinating to fly into the midst of the stars and the galaxies, and really gave me an appreciation of the vastness of the universe and the immeasurable dimensions of Christ. Awesome.

Our space education wasn’t over. From there we went to Griffith Park Observatory (from where we saw the Hollywood sign – my first time to see it despite visiting LA on previous occasions!) and went to the Planetarium show. Wow, talk about Truth Questions, the narrator brought up the following questions:

  • What is man?
  • Why are we here?
  • What is the earth for?
  • And why does it matter?

What do you think?
