Experiencing God

Wow! is the word for Reflex Youth Camp this last weekend. Brett Fish made the trip up from Cape Town to speak to us (and he’s doing so again for our Young Adults camp – whoop whoop!) In his ‘Thort for the week’ which everyone’s gotta subscribe to, he said,

“..absolutely incredible - blown away by watching God work in those young (and at times small) kids' lives - repeated the 'Listening to God' workshop we did at Summer Camp and saw God blow people away by His intervention and speaking into their lives and just trusting big time that the fruit of this weekend will be seen for ever... please pray that God will continue the work He has begun there - wow!” Ditto to that - lets keep praying.

The 'Listening to God' session just blew my face off!! And as I told the group I was blessed to be in, I actually was on my way to the beach, when I said to the guys, “hey, I’m turning back.” So I got there just in time and joined a splendid group and went on for hours. I did not expect God to do what he did. Silly me. He's faithful beyond my dreams. He blew open my box.

"God is bigger than my box, He's bigger than my theology, He's bigger than my understanding.. He's bigger than me." Brett Fish

Ah, you gotta try Ultimate Frisbee – nice win, team. :)

jlbowdenHello Ry-ry...

I just found illuminated people. Oh my. I just sat and read the whole entire thing. Please don't stop the thought-sharing... oh, and I know EXACTLY what you mean about the snails! Rainy nights at Augusta are dangerous events for frog life, crabs and snails. I stop Pearl and rescue them to safety. Are you there yet? (Hope you got the double meaning!)

Love, Jo
