Loaves and Fishes (and Ducks!)

video

This by the lake at Northwestern College, Chicago. Who do you think has the upper hand - ducks or fish?



We've had more great times by the lake...


... getting wet...


...being weird...

...posing...


...training as quaterbacks...


...wandering...


...working out...


...conking out!


We've had some lovely times with Judith and Hannah (seen here) who've understood our need to chill out in between all the other stuff we've been doing.

They looked after the boys while we (Mum and Dad) got some grown-uptime in the city.



We had fun eating Chicago pizza-pies!!!!


Mmmmmm....


There was a great free jazz concert in Millenium Park...


...the Pavillion is an amazing outdoor theatre...


Wow!!!


We looked at Chicago's great sights...


And then it's always great to get back with the boys...


Our time here at Reba has been so wonderful.


Look, we even went to a wedding which was a great worship experience too.

The things that don't show up in photos have been amazing too. We have heard great stories and felt the power of new life in covenant community (with all it's pain and brokenness). We have asked many questions and have many more and have been reading plenty too. The books we have yet to read is extending all the time too!

Today is our last day here. We are going to spend time with Reba Church pastor, Charlotte and the with two founding members of the Reba Fellowship community, Virgil and Julius. We hope to pack too!!!

Tomorrow we fly to New York.

So, until we meet again...
