My decade in review

After seeing some really great 'decades' in review, from a few friends, I have decided to follow suit. So here is my last ten years in very abbreviated form:

1999 - Kim and I got married. Finished 5th year at Bryanston Methodist as a Youth Pastor.
2000 - Travelled and worked in the UK.
2001 - Worked in UK and then travelled around the world.
2002 - Started ministry in Somerset West and finished my first year of ministerial studies. Declan was born in the December.
2003 - Finished my degree at John Wesley College in Pretoria and assisted at North Rand Methodist.
2004 - Moved to Dalton Methodist. Nathan was born. Completed my Honours degree.
2005 - Continued at DMC, started my Masters in Theology.
2006 - Completed Masters, Ordained as a Minister, finished at DMC.
2007 - Started at Wesley Methodist in PMB. Visited family in UK and started writing book.
2008 - Joshua born in March. 'Living Oceans Apart' published & launched in November.
2009 - Mission trip to Ubombo, took up blogging seriously, celebrated 10 year wedding anniversary, & got to visit Sabi Sabi.

Whew, after all of that, I suddenly feel tired! There is so much more I could have written, but that would take up many more pages.

God has been incredibly gracious to me over the past 10 years, especially with my fantastic family. God has brought some amazing people into my life and I am blessed to be surrounded by so many great people (yes, that includes you!).

It is amazing to see how all of our lives can change, without us even perceiving HOW and WHEN.

"No eye has seen,
No ear has heard,
No mind has conceived,
what God has in store for those who love him..."
- 1 Corinthians 2:9


May we all start 2010 Living in Grace,
