Solomons Celebration!

What a fantastic celebratory service we held at Church this morning at both 8am and 10am services where we celebrated the arrival of our brothers and sisters from the Solomon Islands from our sister parish there.      Here is Patrick leading the team in a song of worship - amazing voices of angels!  A team of 26 has arrived in the Bay for 12 days and we are enjoying fellowship and friendship with each and every one of them!

We were blessed to have Patrick join us for lunch with our family - you will see that he is feeling the cold weather here,  so borrowed  one of David's fur lined jackets!   It should be hot and sunny as it is now officially summer .....but it's not!

Lucky for us our two girls were home from Sydney this weekend and Patrick snapped this photo of Ashleigh, David, Chelsea and I after lunch!

Then, as the surf was up, we went down to the point at the end of our street to watch the boys surf - this is Ash's boyfriend, Tim!    What a glorious day we have had - now heading into the Service of 9 Lessons and Carols at the Church!   More voices of angels to come!  


  1. Sounds like a wonderful time! Great family shot!

    would love to be able to hear the singing.
    Enjoy your visitors....it must be a very special time.

  3. What a nice photo of your family. And how wonderful that you can have your visitors. Our church (in Aberdeen, Scotland) is twinned with a church in Malawi and we recently had a visitor from there. Materially they have much, much less than us, but spiritually...! Enjoy all the singing.
