Above are a couple photos from this morning's gathering; Eric and FPC's youth leader, Andre. Andrew and new friend Ben. And Andrew on the rope swing yesterday.
It's so nice here. Relaxing, peaceful. I've gone hiking, swimming, got some good color, as a friend of mine is fond of saying. Definitely hot though, triple digits every day.
Each evening for Vespers, we all file down a stone path to the grated cat walk and descend a steep flight of stairs to the tennis courts, where we lie on our backs on the hard asphalt surface, still baking from the heat of the day. There, we worship God as we gaze into the galaxies, His heavenly sanctuary splayed out before us, stars upon stars upon stars, the likes of which I've seen only once before in my life -- on a vacation to Maine some 25 years ago. How great Thou art. How great Thou art.
