Gratitude - Jesus Army Life, Day 209

Yesterday I received a phone call from a friend who I'd been trying to catch up with but hadn't seen for some time. I was delighted to hear from him - we go back some way and I helped him out once. We arranged to meet up again and at the end of the call he said: "Thanks for the past."

It touched me.

Last night 15 of our youngsters tripped off to Northampton to sit around a fire in a woods and hear stories of "Christian outlaws" of the past, including Luther, Fox and Bunyan. I think they enjoyed it. Four young sisters then came back to camp overnight in out garden in freezing temperatures. I haven't seen them yet, so I can't say what colour their skin was first thing this morning.
