New Zealand sunset~

We just hosted the Calvary Chapel pastors conference for New Zealand this past 4 days~
It was held in a lovely place called Waikanae, a little beach town~
The pastors were blessed by a family with the use of their most amazing beach home (3 levels high) 6 bedrooms, a beach cottage attached to it and 6.5 bathrooms~ all over looking the beautiful ocean onto Kapiti Island with view's of the South island.
I played cook and maid~ which was really fun plus this house had everything! We tried to really bless the guys with an abundance of everything for we know ministry is hard a lot of work and can be lonely .
They studied through Philippians together having the sweetest fellowship~a really great group of godly men! Mark and I were blessed to be the hosts this year... & we were so blessed by the family that donated their home (mansion) for these men so they could have this much needed retreat! It's a rare thing in the body of Christ to see such big givers, sadly~perhaps that is why God has in trusted them with so much...because they know it all belongs to Him & they give it all back not being stingy! We give thanks for them! Our God is amazing!
These are some pictures of the sunset~
Bless & Hugs!
