A group of 16 of us braved the showery weather for a walk in Greenhithe. We met at the Anglican church in Greenhithe Road then walked around the centre of the suburb, crossing 2 parks. Then we did a coastal section that gave us wonderful views of the Greenhithe motorway bridge. There was a lot of road walking because 2 areas of bush were closed due to Cyclone Gabrielle.

After the walk, we went to Sylvia Coulterís place for afternoon tea where Geoff shared a true story of 2 teenage schoolboys - one a Christian and one a Muslim. The Christian lad was beaten and left for dead by the Muslim, who hated him, but who later came to believe in God and was disowned by his family. 20 years later the 2 men met, and Zecharias the Christian told Yasser, he had survived the attack, albeit with life lasting injuries, and had prayed for him daily. So, a wonderful example of persevering prayer and the cost some Christians endure for loving and believing in Jesus.
