The programme is now over and this is already our last post. The time flew by and we learned a lot in the past 40 Days.
This week we have really focused on our approach to the programme ending and how we will begin to transition into the next season. We started the week with the longest tramp we have done. After the church on Sunday we left our basecamp for the last adventure as a team.
Our first evening in a hut, we went out to see the night sky. It was such a clear night that we could see the Milky Way, and was just overwhelming that God made something so beautiful and cares for us.
On our second day we headed off for our longest day of hiking yet as we were challenged with a 7 hour day. We began the day by trying to climb Mt. Arthur, but ice and snow held us back to reach the peak. We found another rock face that was close to the summit, where we enjoyed the view and tried to hold on against the wind. The rest of our day consisted of many ups and downs through the ridge and over Gordon’s Pyramid to our second hut.
In our study we talked about wisdom and how we should ask for wisdom to be with us on a daily basis. We also discussed how to manage media usage when we get our phones back – sometimes it is good to think about how much time media takes up in our lives.
The last day on our walk out of the backcountry, we split up the team to talk about living a pure life by honouring God and marriage. The boys took a slight detour to climb the Lodestone Mountain, which proved to be quite a challenge but it was a good bonding experience on their last hike together.
Yesterday was our final day as a team, and we headed out around the world and to our normal lives. We hope that we can take all the things we learned and experienced with us and use in our daily lives.
We want to thank you all for your support. It is just awesome to have people all around the world thinking and praying for us and we believe that each single prayer can change our lives.
- For safe travels for all of us as we head back home
- That we can be shining lights in our countries and in our daily lives
