It’s been a bit of an emotional week! Watching the Indian Pacific (train) pull out of Adelaide station last Thursday night, with my wife and two youngest daughters on board, left me and my oldest daughter (beside me) with lumps in our throats.
As she said to me, “It has taken so long to get you all out here (to Australia) and in minutes it’s all over and they’re gone!”
30 minutes ago I said ‘Goodbye!’ once again to my wife and youngest daughter, via FaceTime, as they get ready to board their plane bound for Ireland in the next couple of hours.
As they part and get on to the next thing – one daughter heading to Amsterdam to work with YWAM and the other leaving within a fortnight for an internship in the USA – my oldest daughter and I (and a colleague from California) start off the next Simply the Story (STS) workshop here in YWAM Adelaide tomorrow morning.
