Tim Writes

A huge thank you to Nancy for co-ordinating, to Pauline, Nolene, Janice, Lesta, Dalma, Gwen and Joyce for helping on the two days and also to all those who baked for the Synod afternoon teas. It was a stupendous job and I know we excelled ourselves in the quantity and quality of the food produced. Several remarked on a job well done by our folk. So thank you everyone you did us proud. We will be receiving part of the funding allocated to making Synod happen in due course.

DRAINAGE UPDATE We're still working away slowly at the drainage at Cobden church. Because of levels it now looks like the Ark drainage will have to come out the front and across the driveway to the trench we dug, but that also measn we can close of the back trench and not have to dig up the playground which is a huge bonus. Labour weekend looks like being the time we will do some of the work across the front as well.

JESS BATY Sadly I have some sad news to report. Jess Baty passed away on Thursday about 3:30pm. She went very peacefully and I have been to see her daughter and also Jeff who is at Granger House. The funeral will be

from Cobden Anglican church on Monday at 2pm. Please keep Dixon House, Jeff and the wider family in your prayers at this time, and know also that as a woman of faith, Jess is now safe with her Lord.

A THIRD MEN'S 4 x 4 GROUP? The second 4x4 group has started but there is always room for more. If you are still interested in being a part of such a group please see Tim in the near future. We already have two names of possible interested parties.

PREACHING AT 7:29 LIVE Last week I spoke at the Afrikaans church and really enjoyed myself. Next week I speak at 7:29 Live as Marge and Robin are away on holiday.
