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 8: Finding real gold

Day 8 (Wednesday 29th June 2011)
I took the most pictures on Day 8, and maybe I should tag it “fun in the fog” instead of “fun in the sun“, but I think you’ll get the point – it was a lot of fun! We began the day with a later start than normal, giving the saints staying in Berkeley time to get over to us in San Francisco. Then after we regrouped at the Blazing Saddles bike shop (having traversed the Golden Gate Bridge twice in the van, in an attempt to find it!) we shared the Christ we enjoy with the employees, were given the route and safety talk, were kitted out with helmets and bikes, test-rode our bikes down the blue mat, and were escorted down to the grass by the bay!

And we were off!

Day 6: Flowing water

Day 6 (Monday 27th June 2011)
My hospitality in Fresno was at “grandma’s place”, and although only one of us could speak Chinese to her, it was still so very sweet to be in her home. We were able to spend a little time together on the morning of Day 6 because the brothers were rather lost in finding us, so we were an hour waiting outside, before the heat of the day, enjoying the garden and the pleasant morning sun, and sampling grandma’s “organic” peaches. Yummy, and even more so on an empty tummy!
