Something New

The first week and a half in Australia have flown by! It has been a whirlwind, meeting people in the church, camp and even learning to drive on the opposite side of the road! (Note: If you keep the steering wheel in the middle of the road, then you are on the "right" side.) Everyone has been so nice and helpful so far, which has made it easier in the transition. One of my favorite things in Australian culture is "tea time." It is a special time in the morning to stop and get a "cuppa." I have fallen in love with the tea-white with two-which means hot tea with milk and two sugars. If you have never tried hot tea with milk in it, I highly recommend it. Sometimes I have up to 5 cups a day!! So delicious! I have also enjoyed my first Australian sausage. Kent Hartman was so excited for me to try the sausage that he took a pic...

As you can tell, I really enjoyed it. Ha. The picture was taken at Camp Cataract, which is a youth and young adult camp that is put on by the church in Campbelltown (about 2 hours from Gosford.) It was a wonderful camp, but quite overwhelming for my first weekend. So many people to meet! I hope I can remember all of their names! Everyone was so great, and it was an amazing start to my time here in Australia.

The camp theme was "For such a time as this," studying the book of Esther. I really feel that God has placed me in Australia for a purpose and I am excited to see what he has in store for me for such a time as this!


  1. I loved tea time! I also drank my tea the same way. They had some other hot drink I really liked. If I remember right it was like chocolate milk?

  2. I'm reading your blog and keeping up with what you are doing. Aunt Leta
