so we did our presentations yesterday, and everybody was very nice about what we said. We got really rather more compliments on our style and content than I consider warranted, but still warmed by how lovely our Southover family are. It's going to be hard to leave. Personally, I discovered a love of talking into a microphone about my own opinions - John says perhaps I had better avoid public speaking for a while so as to avoid an exploded ego.
So. Fundraising news:we had an amazing gift given to us on Sunday evening that gets us on our way to the YWAM dream, and we were very touched and grateful to the person in question. Who shall remain anonymous!
On thursday John and I have an appointment at the bank to open a 'YWAM account' so we can put all the money safely in one place. Handmade Christmas presents are underway (the relatives are always kind and encouraging about my handicraft efforts so i'm going to inflict some more on them), family arrangements over Christmas are nearly finalised and people are starting to get excited about 24-7 Prayer. It's been a good weekend. Thank you.
"Then look Christ in the face - whose mercy you have professed to obey - and tell Him whether you will join heart and soul and body and circumstances in the march to publish His mercy to the world."
