A lovely but rather unusual weekend

The Chinese group on Saturday night was a very happy time, if somewhat incomprehensible - almost entirely in Mandarin. We will meet up with the folks asking about baptism next week for the first in a series of sessions. There is an idea doing the rounds that it is by the act of being baptised that one is born again of water and the Spirit, so it was good to be able to reassure everyone that people who are baptised are no more saved than anyone else, and that if they want to wait that's fine.

Sunday morning Patricia and I were at Anglade where things seemed to go OK. Numbers were down, I don't know why. End of school hols, perhaps ?

This may also account for the absence of almost all the students on Sunday evening. We were encouraged by the visit of four Dutch friends, however, one of whom lived in Aberystwyth for 6 months. Also by the return of our Swedo-Norwegian lad accompanied by his parents and his grandparents. It was a good time.
