Summer fun

The continual struggle of my heart is to reconcile our life here in New Zealand with what I know reality is for so many people around the world - particularly in Africa.


I feel God is allowing me to enjoy the blessings we so UNDESERVEDLY have in this beautiful and blessed country!
Since it's summer here and the kids are on vacation, we went away for a week to relax as a family.
Through generous Christmas gifts from a family member last year and this year, 
we were able to get camping gear - and off we went to explore a part of NZ we hadn't seen before.
It also happened to be the only place in the NZ that had no rain during those exact days!

What a wonderful blessing this was!

By the way, just for the record, there were no coconut trees :)

Wow! Great pics Isabel! Looks like you had an absolute blast. I loved looking at all the scenery (and the gorgeous Betts family of course!). so glad you got to get away and enjoy some special family time.
