Because the summer's all gone

No todays title is not in reference to the recent weather, although having been thoroughly soaked several times over the last few days i was seriously tempted to post critising the weather of this country.

Though the summer may be gone for this year there is always next year and with summer there is also . . .summer project!!! Yes these exciting evangelical extravaganza's will be back so i will take this opportunity to encourage everybody who is . . .actually no just everbody to consider going on a project. They are absolutely amazing times when you can learn so much about yourself and about God and his will for your life.

Failing that you can always get to know the Agape team in Liverpool and evangelise here in this very city!

"Students have begun to catch the vision for reaching their campus with the gospel and a desire to multiply their lives" say Ryan Hawkins, who has stepped up to lead this years team. "The most exciting thing has been seeing believers get to grips with what making disciples really means"

In other news, summer projects 05 beloved football team Zenit St Petersburg lost 1-0 to Bolton last night. Hopefully though we will all still be wearing those shirts with pride (we paid at least 4 pounds for them!!)

And finally, having gone to the doctors for about the zillienth time in recent months i was told they had screwed up my appointment and couldn't change my dressing, despite the fact that they also told me it needed changing. As a nurse (who couldn't help me, but could apparantly spend 10 minutes telling me why she couldnt help me without an appointment) explained that it needed doing, but they couldn't do it, i decided to make my point by saying "oh give me the dressing, i'll do it myself!"

And so i now find myself sitting here, with a dressing on the desk next to me wondering why oh why i made such a foolish offer? fortunately living opposite a staff nurse and church worker has its advantages! Thanks Kath (in advance)

i cant say enough about Summer projects and i know when i came back from it i was changed alot.

it forces you to depend on God more and it makes you grow and he helps you grow through it. its not always easy but if your a chicken and cant be bothered to Grow in your faith then spend you summer at home.lol Joke. God will use you wherever you are but really think about having three weeks in a st peterburg. its beautiful!!! and the People dont know Jesus just like people here. except that they tend to not think your a freak (well sometimes) and listen to you and are will to listen to you and the sadest thing is that when you walk the streets of Stpeterburg like many cities every face has written on it sadness and pain and tiredness and seeks more in life, without knowing what they are lookin for is Jesus.

so pray about it and talk to the agape guys. they may be weird. but so are all of us.

plus its not jus St petersburg that you can go to. there are lots of different places. like birlin, USA, middle east, south east asia. siberia (coldest place on earth), etc.

there is a challenge for you.
