Aberystwyth Missions Fair

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.)

The photos:

  1. I love the robins here.  They’re much cuter than the american robins (which are actually thrushes).
  2. 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.
  3. Aberystwyth seafront.  Lots of colorful houses!
  4. 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!
  5. Lake Vyrnwy.  I sailed here several times when I was learning to sail. We almost sunk a boat one time. 😀
