My Wonderful Birthday Weekend

This weekend was incredibly busy. On Friday, we hosted a farewell for one of a friends who’s heading to America to be an Au Pair. That was a great party, with a fair few people. Saturday was my birthday party. We played a round of Supa Golf, which I ended up taking out with a brilliant round of 44. If only I could shoot that in actual golf! I even finished with a brilliant drive on the par 4 120m 18th hole that reached the green. That night, we had a few mates around for a barbeque to help celebrate.

Sunday, and we started off the day leading our first service, this time at the Kwinana Corps. It went pretty well, but I learnt a very valuable lesson – always run your Children’s Story before the actual day. I was trying to open this bag of pebbles, and it ended up going everywhere. All these bright coloured pebbles all over the floor in front of the Holiness table. Oops! Following the service, it was up to my parents for lunch, and then home for a bit of a rest, and a wonderful dinner with my wife.

It as an incredibly busy weekend, but it was incredibly rich, spending time with friends and family. I want to thank everyone who came and helped me have a great weekend.
