Retreat, Date, Trip

Posted on

Those extremely interested in more information on the ‘retreat and date’, which I will be sumarrizing here, may look at my brother’s beautiful writeup. The retreat being referred to would be the Palmview School Annual Retreat. Bible study, snack, food, snack, games, snack, singing, food, fun, snack, snack… maybe I’m exaggerating about the snacks ๐Ÿ˜‰ Aunt Mary and her wonderful acolyte Asheley did the Bible studies (on excellence), my brother did the beautiful musicalness, and my mother did the games, snacks, etc ๐Ÿ˜‰ We did a bonfire, a HUGE bonfire, so that was fun. They all slept outside in tents — not for me, no thanks! A certain someone would have to twist my arm pretty bad to get me to do that (or my parents order me :P) so I slept in my bed like a civilized person. Games included a sort of mini-golf which I totally bombed but had fun at anyway. Food included hamburgers and (wonder of wonders!) hotdogs. Plus we made tie-dyed tees! ๐Ÿ˜€ *is so happy* Mine came out with an awesome totally multi-colourishious sworl. I shall muchly be wearing cet un ๐Ÿ˜€

Date, date… ah, yes, date! That was Aunt Mary and Asheley taking Daniel and I out to dinner. We were the chaperones ๐Ÿ˜‰ Think guys chaperoning girls seems backwards? Tough! teehee ๐Ÿ˜‰ it was a lot of fun, and Aunt Mary gave us both a copy of The Prayer of Jabez — I’m mostly done mine already ๐Ÿ˜€ Really good book.

Trip. Fall. Spat! Wait, uh, no, not that kind of trip. I went on a day-trip with (vous avez eu!) Aunt Mary and Asheley yesterday. They had a meeting to decide the fate of a youth camp they’ve been planning. It was a good Chadian experiance for me, especially right before I leave for good. Beignรฉ (French for doughnuts, but these aren’t quite doughnuts, we just call em that), sugared milk, peanuts, boule, and two glasses of utterly revolting tea. Not the nice red-so-much-sugar-your-teeth-rot-before-you-finish shai, but some sort of herbal coffee bitter less-sugar thing ๐Ÿ˜› Ah, well, on survive.

I’m going to NDJ with Dad on Monday for one week, and may or may not be out of contact during that time — I have no idea. Going to have a peek at their computer system et chose comme sa, haha. Have I totally annoyed you with all the French thrown into this post? rofl, sorry, still in semi-french mode from yesterday ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m sure you’ll all live — if any of you even read this. With Chels grounded and Trev busy I probably just have the occasional visit (which I know I have, but it’s not regular), but anyway, yup, uh huh, yayayayayayaya — lol, you’d have to see the movie ๐Ÿ˜‰

Until I see you or see you not or post or email or chat/IM + write again I shall not have, uh, done any of that… ya, teehee ๐Ÿ˜€

I really enjoyed your post as I always do. I haven’t read Daniel’s post yet but I just sent him another email with a couple of prayer requests. I’ll read his post later today. I just finished White last night – WOW! As I mentioned to Daniel, in my opinion, Dekker can really write a good story. My son John has just started Red and is enjoying it. When I read your words “before I leave for good” I was struck – you are really entering into a new life.
I really like your blog Stephen!
