Compassion Child Sponsoring

We had a chap from Compassion come and speak at church on Sunday. I videoed the last 13 minutes of his message with my phone. You can watch it on You Tube if you would like. I have also embedded them in here.

The young chap we have sponsored as a result is a little Indonesian boy. I hope as a result he can achieve a better life. Did you know 91 million children go to bed each night hungry?

Part 1 - 9 Minutes

Part 2 - 4 Minutes

The weekend - climbing, church and chunder

IMG_0665-800Saturday I went climbing with a bunch of young folk. We headed up Mt Beerwah, one of the local volcanic plugs making up the Glasshouse mountains, so called because when Captain Cook anchored off the coast he could see the distinctive plugs sticking up in the distance like glass houses.

Church on Sunday was a good time of reflection and teaching in Ephesians. Jude and Erin stayed home with the chunder bug that has hit this house in the last week - with all the kids succumbing to it in succession. Jude and I haven't chundered, but both had some queasiness last week. Hopefully it is all gone now.

Church on Sunday

We had most of the folks from our home group turn up at our church on Sunday which was great - the kids certainly enjoyed seeing their friends there.

Heres a pic of the little girls together in their pretty dresses.

Weekend Round up

So much happened I cant write it all down but some summaries will have to do.

Football - played 2 games in the tournament - damaged my hamstring again though not badly - however will be needing some work on it. Played full forward for about 15 minutes and kicked a behind, got a tackle that went un rewarded, missed another kick and had 3 coring opportunities where the ball kicked to me didn't come straight to me and I couldn't mark it. Still hd lots of fun and the team is starting to gel. The rest of the time I played in defence and laid a lot of tackles and disposed of the ball cleanly. The coach said afterward I had clean hands. Oh and I had a contested mark inside 50 that I went back to kick, but one of our players ran into space in the pocket so I kicked to him, and his kick was touched on the line.
