What's Up With Me?

Lately most of my posts have been a combination of 'Curried Missionary', Illustration Friday and Photo Friday so I thought it was time I put in a general post updating what's up with me.

Michael and I have been busy collecting furniture which has been donated for our new SIM WA office. The Lord has provided an amazing array of shelving, desks, lounge suites and other things. I think the only thing we don't have so far is a microwave. We went op shopping this week and bought cups, glasses and cutlery (no plates yet) and I think it cost us a total sum of $11.50 which was pretty good we thought. We still need to buy curtains and are in need of an air conditioner as the room has a tin roof and fibro walls (and poor little Kezi has to sleep in there so it will limit how much time I can spend there with her at this time year). The office is starting to look more 'officey' now if you know what I mean. (pics below)

Current view looking towards the entry (looks better now though!)

Slightly different angle (notice the brightly coloured walls, you can tell it was a kid's club!)

Looking backwards from the first view, this will be the bookshop/library area

And another view of that


Michael and Keziah (and as you can see, the other wall is bright yellow, I love it!)

We are also in the process of joining SIM as long-term missionaries which includes writing out what we belive in a long list of doctrinal statements. It's actually an enjoyable experience to look at what I believe in about certain areas. We're off to Sydney for a week soon too to do orientation with the other new State Directors. The Lord has blessed SIM with new directors in Tasmania, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia all at the same time. There's already one in NSW. Our new Australian Director (Dr Omar Djoeandy) is quite visionary and asked the mission staff to pray for new directors for each state and that's what we have!

Anyway, that's our current focus at the moment. We're looking forward to our start as State Directors for SIM WA after we return from Sydney at the end of February. We also have a commissioning service and dedication of the new office on Saturday March 11th . If you are in Perth and are interested, you're welcome, just email me for details.

That's about it really, oh, inbetween feeding, burping, soothing, playing with, dressing, changing (and redressing and rechanging) and bathing Keziah!!
