Friday morning we woke feeling pretty good in spite of having only 5-6 hours of sleep. The director of Wycliffe New Zealand and his wife picked us up to take us to the home of Mary and Kevin Salisbury. We met Mary last November in Australia. Mary and her husband are members of Wycliffe.
As we got to the house, a bucket of fish were sitting by the door. The Salisbury’s live a short walk from the sea and Mary has fish nets that she sets. That morning she was surprised to find 12 fish waiting in the net. God provided a delicious breakfast. We enjoyed a delightful breakfast sitting around the table in their sunny dining room while we chatted about various things. After breakfast we took a walk to a park nearby along the waterfront.
Mary brought out some winter clothes for us to borrow – it is winter in New Zealand. Then Mary and her mother took us on a driving tour of Auckland – an unexpected pleasure. What a beautiful city. We were blessed with clear blue skies and sunshine.
As it is winter, darkness fell quickly and we drove back to the flat in the dark. We were glad to fall into bed after a full, but wonderful first day.
