today we travelled to Port Said to see Wallace and Ceridwen! It
was great to see them again - our only visitors so far from England.
brought us lots of news from home and some nice goodies! We spent
the morning looking around the town together (it is very "touristy")
. . . then we went to pizza hut for lunch. We talked for a long
time and it was so nice to see familiar faces. No doubt they will
update you themselves on all of our news when they get back.
with some other things we passed on a video (to be copied via
Mike and Maria) to be shown to anyone who wants to see it- we've
been careful about it's contents. Please feel free to show it
at either/or the normal regular meeting, members' meeting or the
smaller house meetings, but either way, as many as possible just
to let them know how we are getting on. We are so aware of many
people who feel that they are part of what we are doing here.
We were very busy yesterday (this is normal for a Friday) but
it didn't help taking the video throughout the day. Overall we
are pleased with the result and feel that perhaps it was worth
been buying and re-arranging furniture in our flat to make a nice
home base for which to bring people back to- we feel that it is
an important part of what we do here. It is always a challenge
to get the best results with the least amount of money as possible
but it is all coming together now. For the rest of the week we
were busy without much to show for it at the end (isn't that just
typical?). Actually, I've been tying up a few loose ends and doing
preparation for things next week when I have three important meetings.
shock news for this week is that it rained! Yes, RAIN! It happened
yesterday at the end of service and it only lasted for a few minutes
but it was definitely water falling from the sky. This is the
first time we can remember seeing rain since February so we feel
that it IS something to write home about! The rest of the day
was sticky and humid: 36 Degrees C (97F). This is "sleep in the
afternoon" weather which Hannah does on a regular basis. Yesterday
I felt that I had to too but I only got half an hour before Hannah
woke me up having just come to the end of her sleep time.
the end of this update for another week,
of you all at this time,
Alison and Hannah
