I had my annual week away from civilisation in sunny Tywyn with CCIW! I was slightly apprehensive about the week, as the previous two months’ weather was slightly damp, to say the least! On Saturday night it was raining, but come Sunday morning, the sun was shining brightly and the weather stayed warm and sunny for the rest of the week.
The week revolved around the Acts of the Apostles, especially looking at the life of the apostle Paul from his conversion, on the road to Damascus, to his incarceration, in Rome. We traced how God used Paul to spread the gospel of Jesus to both Jews and gentiles, to people like Sergius Paulus, Lydia and Timothy. People of different backgrounds, but people who all needed the salvation which was only available through faith in Jesus.
It was good to be able to share the bible with children from all over the country, as well as to join in activities with them. I finally got to climb to the top of Cadair Idris, but spent most of the latter half of the week suffering with a cold!
A great week, none the less!
