I can’t believe I have been here over a week!
From the Tutukaka Lighthouse
This last week has been great! I have met so many new people and seen so much of God’s beauty and glory here in New Zealand. I can’t wait for the term to start and I can really start working and sharing the Lord with more people.On the way to the Tutukaka Lighthouse
This week we watched the first 2 Lord of the Rings movies. Driving around I can definitely see why they would film those movies here. It is definitely what I would picture in the books. By the way the shire is basically the North Island and the rest of it is mostly the South Island. JOne morning we woke up to find sheep on our lawn

Last Monday I was able to go to the girls club at Te Ora Hou. There is a girls club and a boys club every Monday night during term. Basically they pick these teens up and bring them together and do activities and hangout with them. I am praying about whether or not I should be involved in it but I think it would be a great way to share the Lords love with these teens, so I am leaning toward yes. It was a really great night getting to talk with them and interact with them. Every week they do something different, this week it was a painting project. Here’s mine J
This Saturday Ellen (my roommate), her family and I hiked the Tutukaka Lighthouse. It finally stopped raining and was a beautiful day. The view from the lighthouse is incredible; the pictures don’t even come close to the true beauty of New Zealand. I can’t believe the Lord has led me to a place like this it’s truly amazing! Although with all the rain that we have had I can see why some people don’t like it during every season except summer.Whangarei Rock wave

This week my main job is finding a place to live and finding a car. Please pray that the Lord gives direction on both. I know He has a plan and I just want to be open and listening for His voice on it.
