Week Five & Six - *Insert Witty Title Here*

 This week is a 2 week update due to the amount of things that happened,

 Week Five


And so enters week five - and after such a busy week previously I had been instructed to take a second day off this week to make sure I was resting enough.

Sunday was my first time in the Music group, which I was SO excited for! It was one of the things I was missing as I had moved from a church where I played every single week to one where I was playing once a month. It just made me more excited to be part of the music though. I had to learn a few of the songs in the practice which was a challenge.
In the service God showed how he has everything under control as the music came together so much better than could have been expected. It's just a reminder that we can't make things work just relying on our own strength but God is in control so if we trust him with everything he will help us.

Monday evening showed the start of one my one to one's with a teenager. We spent our first session getting used to each other, discussing interests and playing Fifa - I won! (Somehow) Although he scored the better goals.

Tuesday was my supervision with the minister, we are currently working our way through
John Piper's book 'Don't Waste Your Life'. Which I am finding very challenging!
Then in the evening was Home Group, which I really enjoyed. The Home Group have made me feel like close family which I am ever so grateful - it has allowed me to contribute to discussion quicker without feeling like they don't know me well enough to open up.

I had Wednesday and Friday as my days off, which was nice (and probably needed). On Thursday it was MMTC East again and having arrived in Nottingham I gained a headache and so struggled through the morning sessions. Thankfully the headache had left in time for the afternoon sessions. (this was the first headache I talked about in one of my previous posts).

Thursday evening had me at De Montfort University CU again, this time representing my church at their church fair! The church fair was an invitation to the surrounding churches to come and host a stall telling the new students what they are about as a church. We decided to keep it simple, just state who we are, what we try to do as a church and show them where we are on a map.

Saturday was a day of prayer and fasting. Unfortunately due to my medical condition I can't fast, but I really enjoyed taking the day to pray both alone and with others. Since spending that time I have been able to see God's beauty more. We had 3 meeting times during the day of prayer - where the 3 meals of the day would be. These contained bible-based reflection and response and songs of worship.

Week Six

Sunday before church I went to look after my nieces so that their dad could drum in the music group. I also took them into church, I must admit I really struggled with this because once the youngest of the two saw her daddy she just wanted to go up to him. So this kind of serving I really struggled with, not that I wouldn't love to do it again - it just seems that I can't control tiny little children well!
We did have a couple of students over for lunch and games after the service which I really enjoyed. We had a Tuna Pasta Bake! Yum Yum!

Monday's Leaders meeting and my supervision were both cancelled because the minister and female staff worker were at the FIEC conference Mon-Weds
Tuesday evening was family meeting. We talked about how Sunday Club was going and welcomed the new members into the Church - of which I was one! Then we talked in small groups about 'Growing in Mission' which had been talked about on Sunday.

Wednesday was a bad, bad day. It was a good day in the sense that I had my day off. Other than that it was bad, horrible even!
I had my first migraine of the year.
It even blew me out for the following few days, and despite me trying to do a couple of things I still was struggling to concentrate and not feel dizzy on Saturday - I think I also had a virus which tag teamed with my migraine. Having missed MMTC East on Thursday, I tried to listen to the talks thanks to George (the other ministry trainee) recording them. Although I was still really struggling with my health on Saturday and so they didn't make as much sense as they could have.

So as you can see - I had a really difficult week six

Prayer request time!
-Prayer for all the students searching for a church family - that they might find at family which they can feel part of and can serve in.
-Health - naturally, I am being ultra wary everytime I am ill so just prayer for protection from illness so I can serve God fully.
-Washing up - practical one but that I would be able to manage to do the washing up before it starts piling up (like it is as I am writing right now)

Thanks for all your prayers
God Bless
