A gift…

The Opawa women gave me a gift on Saturday night at camp.
Four gifts actually. Four things to symbolise each of the words:
Opawa Baptist Women’s Ministries.

“Opawa” was a resting place for Maori travellers,
a place to stop and rest.
So the Opawa women gave me a tri-pillow.

They gave me a platter to represent “Baptist”:
as in poor John the Baptist’s head on a platter.
It was head-less.
Some suggestion was made that I may like to select a head to go on it at a later date!

“Women” was represented by a basket of body lotion, soap and shower gel.

“Ministries” by a gift voucher to spend on something to enhance my ministry.

They made me very welcome!

I think the Opawa Baptist Women received a greater gift when you so sadly left Graceways to come to us, how do we really thank you for that!!
(I am so new at this I dont even know what a URL is or how to be anon! but thanx for the opportunity.)
