A morning at the Woods'
8 November 12
We have gotten as far north as Sarina, which is just south of Mackay, and we’ll break up our long stints of driving by calling in on local friends. Lisa and David Wood are a travelling family with five boys — four who currently live with them in their housebus. A year ago, we met David and the boys, and during today’s visit, we finally caught up with Lisa while David was at work!
It’s lovely to be up in the tropics. So much of it reminds me of West Africa where I grew up. Our girls are still acclimatised to the cooler New Zealand temperatures, so they’re not enjoying the heat — except where it means swimming!
Lisa and David have been asked to move the bus from where it is currently parked. I know from experience that transition can be painful, but upon later reflection, we need something to incite us into a new position that will stretch us into more godly beings. The trick is to learn to embrace changes before they are forced upon us!
I look forward to following Lisa and David’s story as they continue finishing their bus and resume their travels. It will be lovely to meet them on the road someday in the future, though I have no idea what that will look like!
