Christchurch Camp at Kaipoi

Wet weather didn’t dampen spirits at our camp at Kaiapoi last weekend (11 – 13 April). Besides those staying in camp, about 15 members came out for the day on Saturday. Vicki, our wonderful cook, fed us well, and Paula came on board as our excellent nurse.

Joan Parker flew down from Hawkes Bay as our speaker and brought excellent messages, giving her testimony, and admonishing us not to say ‘I can’t’ when faced with difficulties, but look for a way to get around the problem so that we can say ‘I can.’ Joan provided practical demonstrations as she removed her prosthetic leg, which was handed around, and showed us how she learned to fold and pack a sweatshirt in less than a minute when she was working in a clothing factory. She also had time to chat with people and answer questions. Thank you, Joan.

Well done, Dave for organising the camp.


Christchurch CFFD : Bus Trip March 2014

We had a beautiful day enjoyed by about 40 from our group. Ritchie’s bus is able to take wheelchairs which made it possible for four of our wheel chair users to participate. We left Christchurch about 10 am, had lunch in the Ashburton Gardens, and enjoyed looking around and seeing the aviaries. On our return journey we took the inland route with a brief stop at Methven. It was very pretty driving through the Rakaia Gorge, and then across the upper Waimakariri River bridge to head back to the main road via South Eyre Road. We returned right on schedule at 5 pm.
Thank you, Lord, for great weather and a safe and enjoyable trip.
