Sunday was VERY HOT !
Although the church building is not very sunny and it's built of stone which takes some heating up, still we were all very hot, so since I was preaching morning and evening we minimised the stand-sit stuff. I think it's the first time ever I have sat for communion in France, but frankly I didn't want to risk anyone fainting !
Today is cooler. Lots cooler. Yesterday the thermometer in the room here said 28 with all the windows and shutters closed. Today it says 24, and that's with the windows open.
It's a good thing really because today lots of people arrive :
1) The English Patient Rides Again.
Peter Morgan and a friend from Bath have cycled to Biarritz and arrive at our place this evening to camp uunder our tree.
2) Ebenezer come to our help
A team of four bricoleurs fly in today to seal the stone wall, sand, paint and generally advance the works in the church. They're staying at the home of one of our church members.
