Beach Mission

So I’ve just fin­ished “sync’ing” my iMac and my iBook so my iBook now mir­rors my iMac as close­ly as pos­si­ble (real­ly made me want .Mac!). Why am I telling you this? Well tomor­row morn­ing I’m head­ing to a town called Cric­ci­eth in north Wales for a two week beach mis­sion.
This is some­thing which I have nev­er done before and so I’m slight­ly ner­vous about it. I have to do a short talk, along with lead a small group for a group of kids between the ages of 11 and 13. This is all new, I’ve nev­er done either of these two before so it’s set to be quite a chal­lenge. I know God will equip me, and I know he has already giv­en me expe­ri­ence with lead­ing old­er teenagers/my peers in small group Bible stud­ies to draw on so I’m sure I can do it for the young­sters. This is also some­thing I am doing with Lucie, she is lead­ing the youngest age group, but it will be good to serve God togeth­er in the same place and in a dif­fer­ent man­ner to CU and Church.
Please do be pray­ing for me and Lucie over the next two weeks. Please pray I will be equipped and find the knowl­edge and wis­dom I need in God.
In terms of this blog, it means there like­ly won’t be any posts until the 19th/20th, although if I get chance I will try and post some­thing up. So I guess I will “see” you all in a cou­ple of weeks! ha!

  1. You’re going to have a great time. I did two beach mis­sions with UBM, one in Corn­wall and one in the North East, and absolute­ly loved it.
    I went into it think­ing it was my chance to give some­thing back, but I think I learned a lot more from the expe­ri­ence than I prob­a­bly inputted.
    I’ll look for­ward to hear­ing how it went.. and see­ing all of the pics 😛

  3. Hey guys, thanks for the sup­port. I had a great time and God real­ly worked in the two weeks. Hope­ful­ly a fol­low up post will come soon.
    @Jeff — I did it man­u­al­ly, was just a case of export­ing address book con­tacts and a lit­tle bit of jug­gling copies of data­bas­es. Noth­ing to com­plex.
