I realize that November’s been quiet on the news front. That’s not because there’s a lack of news, but rather that it’s been too busy to take the time to write. My plan is to write a newsletter sometime before Wednesday, just so I can keep calling it a monthly newsletter!
From Friday to Sunday this past week, we were in Aberystwyth for a missions fair. The fair was hosted by the Christian Union who did a fantastic job of organizing the whole thing. There were 24 missions organizations represented there, and multiple seminars about missions available. Sadly however, only a handful of people showed up!
Nevertheless, I greatly enjoyed my time in Aberystwyth. I lived there for three months while doing my discipleship training school with YWAM. But it’s been five years since I lived there. While walking around Aber, I was reminded of so many experiences and conversations that happened long ago. I’m so thankful for that time, and for the amazing people that I got to share that time with! (And for the people I get share life with currently.)
- I love the robins here. They’re much cuter than the american robins (which are actually thrushes).
- The ocean. One of my favorite things about being in Aber was hearing the breakers as they rolled in at night. Such a beautiful and melancholy sound.
- Aberystwyth seafront. Lots of colorful houses!
- From the top of a hill in Snowdonia. We were headed to Lake Vyrnwy to see a sculpture one of our friends in Wrexham had done. I missed a turn, and the GPS rerouted us through the back country, over a “mountain.” But it was very much worth it!
- Lake Vyrnwy. I sailed here several times when I was learning to sail. We almost sunk a boat one time. 😀
