Hi there, folks! Apologies for not replying to your emails as I got to read them only when we came home from Sydney. Your concern is, as always, very touching and profoundly appreciated. However, please be assured that rumours of my demise are a bit premature and I am still around to nag and annoy you, all.
As Mike informed you, we were in Sydney for about 2 weeks. We stayed at The Entrance, a seaside suburb in what is called NSW Central Coast which is a little more than an hour drive north of the city of Sydney, to attend an annual Church Feast called The Feast of Tabernacles, the same feast we attended in Baguio City last year and in Harrisburg Pennsylvania in 2003. I guess you have no clue what it is about but just in case you are interested, this feast pictures the Millenial reign of Jesus Christ when He returns on earth. It is a time for concentrated learning about what the Bible teaches on God's plan for mankind which eventuates in the very near future. Loads of great wholesome fun!
We had not seen Sydney for more than 2 years so it was a nostalgic trip for us. We got to drive around the city and see the old familiar landmarks, our old suburb and the house we used to live in. I had trouble holding back the tears. Sydney was my home state for 30 years. My love affair with it has not been diminished by my absence.
We also visited three new grandnephews (one by my sister and two by my first cousins), one of whom is Fely's 5th grandchild. Fely has not yet met this new addition to her family thus the photo.
When we arrived on Thursday about midnight, I tried to open my mail and was greeted with dire warnings/messages of computer infection. My children have been trying to help me clean it but it looks like a really severe attack. A lot of our files have now been corrupted and a number have been completely erased. I am doing this blog knowing that there is a possibility of greater damage but I felt that I should do this one at least before my computer gets totally incapacitated. So if you do not hear from me, it will be because of this problem. Anyway it has been a tremendous pleasure reading all your blogs. Please keep it up, until we meet again in 2010. My very best wishes to all of you.
