My time wit the students on Friday was spent learning about America's National Parks. It was my goal to get the kids to appreciate the National Park that they live in. The Lakes District is a beautiful place with its lakes, mountains, and coast lines. They were also interested in a typical day in an American school. Captain Shaw's has 32 students preschool to year six.
Saturday evening we had our first teen gathering at the church. We were excited to have three teens show up. It was a fun time of games and snacks. They had a blast playing the crazy card game spoons. I have no doubt the group will grow as the word gets out there is a place for teens to hang out on Saturday nights.
Today was a busy one. A man spoke at the service who may be a possibility for the church to call a British pastor. There are a number of things that need to fall into place for this to happen, so it will be awhile before we will know for sure. After church we went to the Ratty Arms for lunch. Great food and atmosphere. Following lunch we went to Abbyfield to have church service with the residents. I love visiting with the older people here. Many of them were children during WWII. What better way to learn European history than from those who experienced it. At 4:00 I attended a worship service at St. Michaels Church of England. Much more traditional than I am used to. A lot of reading back and forth between Vicker and congregation. The church started in Medieval times, but was rebuilt about 1850. Today was a busy one.
