Well, I am back. The reason this blog has been inactive for the past few weeks is that each year I spend three weeks on a field at Fraisthorpe. How did I end up doing that!? The real reason I am happy to be part of it is that every year, and this year was no exception, people have an authentic encounter with God on that field. I pray, and expect, that next year will be the same.
I got back over a week ago, but I then had to catch up with work.
Our camp took place just before the wet weather started. The rain started as the clearing away was drawing to a close.
Fraisthorpe is the site of our youth and family camp. If you go there you will have seen the team that works in the late night diner providing us with curries, kebabs, etc. Josh is the tallest on the team and he works next to the industrial size pizza oven.
What is less know about Josh is that he has a pilot’s license. He came over in his Cessna and gave me a ride over the site. I have to say I felt completely safe with his flying, and the take-off and landing at the nearby airfield were both very smooth.
Below are the pictures I took, though in real life it felt much closer to the ground! This was at the end of the camp so there are some bare patches where tents and caravans had been.
