God's Word for today

Honey, I'm Home!

The title of this post comes from one of my favourite 80s TV shows, Dinosaurs, and that's what I said (albeit to an empty flat) when I arrived back from Mozambique. I'll be blogging more comprehensively on this awesome mission at a later stage, but at the moment I'm still trying to get back into the swing of things here in Uitenhage.

Good news is that Belinda and James will be joining me for a couple of weeks in August. Not so good news is that my trusty Dell laptop looks like it wants to expire at some point. Could be a couple of months, could be three years - who knows?

Anyway, I can't risk being without a machine, and to fix the Dell will set me back around four grand, so I've invested (or rather, my credit card's budget plan has) in a new Acer Aspire One laptop. It's not quite as small as Jenny's Midget, but it is far more svelte than the chunky Dell, weighing in at a slim 1.3kg and having a screen measuring a diminutive 10 inches. It's taking some getting used to, but I like the 7 hours of battery life - I like it a lot! 160GB of hard drive, and 2GB of RAM makes it quite a nifty little performer, and should house my stuff for a few years to come.

On the stationing front, it's now looking about 50/50 that I'll either stay in Circuit or go to College next year. Please pray for the Bishop's Stationing Committee meeting that takes place today and tomorrow in East London.

Ciao for now

Welcome home. The new laptop sounds good! Mine has only 1Gb of RAM, so yours is fancier.
Yes, the bishops' meeting . . .
