It’s inevitable I should start with a comment about the ‘Great British Weather’!
My daughter bought a ‘nice weather for ducks’ T-shirt this week- quite ironic considering the ducklings I saw at a school were looking rather hot despite the children carefully giving them water baths.
However, I may need my daughter’s T-shirt this week as I travel with 17 teenagers to Cape Town for a mission trip – it’s winter there and apparently it rains a lot!
I often hear stories about ‘teenagers today’ which are quite negative. It’s a shame really, because many of the young people I know are fantastic and they really care for one another.
The group I’m travelling with have fundraised for a year and spoken to all ages about the trip and God’s call to serve.
They will be visiting the Townships and engaging with a charity which strives to create a more just society.
When we return I’m sure they’ll use their experiences to serve the community in Horsham. They inspire me... and give me positive stories to tell!
