Today was our last final day at the YWAM base in Cebu and boy was it a big one. We started off with a relaxed morning, sharing the delight of Vegemite (the RIGHT way) with our German friend Mona, devotions and a bit of rest and recovering from a big night last night at the graduation! Arrival of clean laundry also made for many happy team members.
What was our Monday like? For those of you waiting with bated breath for this slightly delayed blog post, let me fill you in…
Today we visited the Children's Home. After being enthusiastically greeted by the children and seeing the path finished, we were invited to hear their testimonies. Despite spending nearly every day together, we did not know their stories.
Started today with another 7:30 breakfast! Where I was late to, of course, munching on baguettes full of butter. After we hopped in the classic van and headed to a dreaded church service (jokes we love church) but I can tell you the girls and myself are missing some good worship and a sermon we understand.
Another toasty warm day in Kampong Thom began as usual with the addition of birthday decorations and songs for Anke’s 18th trip around the sun.
Today we went to Kawasan Waterfall, and what a day it was. Three hour road trip each way was 100% worth it. So refreshing, so much fun, and soooooo beautiful. Basically, it was SO GOOD!
Today was "Jesus Fiesta", the most exciting day of the year for a lot of the kids. There was a change in the location last minute so we all had to be flexible and do some last minute rearranging, but it was amazing at how organised the event was even though it was changed so close to the time.
Lasts night’s sleep was great, a standard 7 hours shut eye on the cool, tiled floor with 5 dogs barking at your door, it doesn’t get any snoozier than that at YWAM. I thank God every day for our prepared brekky at 7am sharp. With the silence of fresh bed eyes we gather and prepare for our day among yummy bread and sweetened cornflakes. Joel led our morning devotion exploring Mark 10, focusing on monetary values versus our heart values. Pushing Jesus’ followers to not only abide by his commandments but also his values, commanding us to seek God ahead of all things.
