"Christ Community this is Janelle."

A day in the life of work at a church office! It felt so much like I was back in Charlottesville answering phones and doing the bulletin for Christ Community. Who would've thought that 3 years later I'd be in Wales working for Christchurch? Not me!

Today the girls de-cluttered cuboards, drawers, the bar in Junction 26 (a room where we're having a coffee house for the Uni students tonight) and the Info table while the guys went to a recent widowers house to help him clean out his wife's old shed. Sounds like the older man, Peter, was incredibly blessed to have company let alone the help. I think the guys are planning on going over again tomorrow to help him take some stuff to the dump. They are all servants!

Then we (the girls) cut 28 cm of gold ribbon for about an hour. (By the way, the metric system makes way more sense...) I think the ribbon is going to be tied around candy canes. And for the rest of the day- I'm talking HOURS, I folded, taped, and stuck cards in these little folders. I got to listen to a message on my ipod (thanks, Vanessa!) and I was jammin' out to some really good music, too. It was so fun! I'm not sure where the others were when I got the camera out- I think Toms filled in some pot holes in the parking lot ("car park") and Taige was maybe setting up PA stuff for the coffee house, and Kat was meeting with Mike. We are all rotating meeting with him and he's caring for us in the midst of transition, work, etc. - last week was my week. Anyways! Off to make some stirfry before heading off to the Coffee House! Hope you're having a great day!
