I've spent the last months preaching in run down church buildings in the Grahamstown township and surrounds. Yesterday I picked up a colleague in Jeffreys Bay for synod. I thought God was good to send me to Grahamstown! J Bay is an idyllic location. Our next stop was Plettenberg Bay, where I am now for synod. There are some pretty good looking places in our universe! Being called to the ministry looks very different from these places compared to where I am coming from!
But for now I am happy to be where I am. I am enjoying the challenges. I could wish for many things to be different, but I am so enriched by what I am learning.
