Sunbury Court

Posted by Teen Bean

So, i've moved from living with James, joya, and nadine to Sunbury court. it is a salvation army conference group that 24-7 is renting out. It is really interesting to be here because everyone who is anyone in 24-7 Prayer is here. I have read quite a few books put out by 24-7 and it is really weird to meet the people that wrote those books. To say the least they are just normal people loving God and listening to him. There are people from all over the world here this weekend. There are about 60 leaders coming from S. Africa, Finland, Germany, Bolivia. Its really cool to talk with all these people (with their funny accents) and just realize how every where all over the world the God we serve is the exact same. 

So anyways here at the grounds i am mostly just working as a behind the seance's girl. This conference is mostly for the leaders, so i have been just working in the kitchen most the time. It is a lot of work and is very tiring by the end of it all, but i enjoy being busy and loving God through the service. Today we made Carrot Soup and i chopped more carrots that i thought the whole of England could have come to tea... (and my fingers are still yellow!).

Last night they had a really amazing time of worship. Half way through they had a time of praise and people prayed in their own languages. It was so cool to hear African, and Swedish, and dutch and German... just really fabulous. They all worship God so freely and openly it was really great. i even had a good laugh because at the end of the service they were telling people all about where they could get tea, and biscuits, and then they were like "oh and the pubs right down the street"...  drinking isn't a big deal here at all... so after the service was over a group of us all headed down to the pub and just talked about how great God is and what he is doing in everyones lives and villages as we drank our beer! it was classic!

well i have to get back to the kitchen. love you all! Trisha thanks for the e-mail i loved reading it!

I just watched the movie Ever After on TV last maybe I am feeling a little bit sentimental...but as I was reading about your hard work chopping carrots till your fingers yellowed...I can't help but compare you to an overworked Cinderella...but never fear...THAT story turned out so well and I am sure yours is right on the same path. I may even start calling you Cinder-Star! ;) Keep up the hard work.
