It has been a blessing to be part of this special service today. It did take about six hours and there was quite a lot of translating but somehow the time passed without too much trouble from us. The seats seemed to be comfortable!
The service included many songs by different groups many written especially for the Young’s. Also worship songs, prayers, notices(very long), offering, greetings, teaching, then the service moved into gifts for Jim and Diane, and also some for the NZ guests. After speeches of thanks from various dignitaries, and replies from Jim and Diane the service eventually concluded about three. Potluck lunch then followed.
Now back at the house and then we will be doing some bag packing.
Thank you for following our journey.
Elaine and the team
