Moving to Auckland

Those of you who know me will know that I have been for some time struggling with the challenge of studying, working, community work, discernment process, being involved in church etc.

I have just heard that I have a scholarship starting in Feb 2009 to study for three years at St Johns College in Auckland. In truth I am in a little shock I think – not at the logistics of moving my house, my husband and my cat to Auckland, but in the leaving. We have had a lot of uncertainty in work and parish shifts this year and at this moment I am aware of the grief as well as excitement of leaving as well. I am sitting here not sure what to do with myself.

Telling my family was interesting. My mother was great although now I know she hasn’t stopped crying since my phone call. It is funny how even at my age the childhood desire to please can pop its head up when we least expect it.

So people whom I know there you go! Care parcels greatly appreciated. Please know that I will and am excited but when there has been such anxiety for so long to hear leaves me not sure how to respond. Pray for me

Great news sister. What a time for you and the Anglican Church! I am so pleased to have shared a little part of this journey with you, and only wish I was up there studying alongside you.

Hey Chris
