Car accident

On Friday afternoon we were very badly hit by another car on an extremely busy junction in Belfast. The other driver didn't see us and ploughed into the drivers side. All four of us were in the car but thankfully are all unhurt. Definitely angels protecting. The car is a write off, so Monday will hopefully see us with a temporary car while we await the insurance money to buy another one. This little one we hadn't even had for 3 weeks! It is good to know God is so much bigger than all these things. All well apart from that although definitely experiencing reverse culture shock. Our house is starting to feel like home and hopefully shipping will arrive soon. However, we are all very much missing our church, our friends and our school in Paraguay.

Short break near the Mournes

Had a lovely holiday organised by SAMS Ireland in Bryansford, Newcastle. The weather was great, did some gentle mountain climbing (really hills I should say!), beach walking, ice-cream eating, getting lost in mazes, visited the first church planted by St Patrick in Ireland. All really excellent. Also spent a lovely afternoon seeing Eileen and Molly in Rostrevor. ( Fellow missionaries from Paraguay who retired to Rostrevor last year.) More photos are in the little album below.
