A happy weekend

Saturday morning was spent hacking back the jungle, that is strimming the paddock that is our garden. When the house was built the garden around was a paddock and a horse lived there. Since then the grass has never been relaid, levelled or whatever, so we just strim it back to reasonable levels. Pat also planted seeds and some bulbs in our new border.

The afternoon found us getting ready for the Chinese meeting and haring off to Cenon at grande vitesse because they now start at 5, and not at 6 as I thought. The topic I was given was the Trinity, because they have been hassled by JWs and Mormons. We had a nice evening, though I was over an hour late ! the most late that I have ever been, I think!

Sunday am we were at Cenon for the Palm Sunday service, Maurice Raetz preached on why the disciples were so ready to abandon or deny Jesus, highlighting the difference between hearing and listening.

At the end of the service history was made with a new interim pastor being unanimously voted for.

More history in the evening with the last Evening Service at the Daveys. We break for two weeks during the Easter Hols, then the next meeting will be on May 4th at Dan.

A happy and exciting weekend was marred only by the demise of Moses, a cat belonging to two colleagues here. He has been buried in our garden alongside the neighbour's cat and sundry rats and guinea pigs.
