NWA and things

I'm finally back in Cambridge after 3 weeks away. I had two reasonably relaxing weeks at home chilling out and looking for jobs followed by one week stewarding at New Word Alive (NWA for short). I had a great time at NWA catching up with friends and making new ones. Stewarding is definitely good fun when you are working with some great people, it is sunny for the whole week and you don't have to do any after hours stuff! I was based in the Great Marquee for most of the week so got to hear nearly all the bible readings from 1 Thessalonians and be at all apart from one of the evening celebrations. I think my highlight of the week was being amazed by God's grace at the final student celebration. I also really enjoyed hearing Rebecca Manley Pippert speak about evangelism. It was really encouraging to hear some of her amazing stories and advice.

I've now started my final term of Relay at ARU and because of the way things work here with semesters and exams there are only 3 more proper CU meetings before the end of the academic year! The students have 3 weeks of lecture and then a short break before a few weeks of exams and then they vanish for the summer holidays. I will still spend time with the students but it wont have the structure of weekly CU meetings. I'm hoping that lots of the girls will come to the weekly prayer breakfasts I am planning to have on campus until they go home for the summer. I'm expecting that there will be more time for study and stuff but I am still going to try to meet up regularly with as many of the girls as I can. It kind of depends on how busy and stressed they get with exams though.
