We woke up nice and early, got ready and then drove 3 and 1/2 hours up to Sydney, arrived on time for the 10am service.
They had worship and memories from various people's experiences at the Enmore church, and then during the sermon, I helped Sally and Andre in Sunday School. It was so full-on!! 18 kids in one tiny room is insane! But I did enjoy it :-)
After church, we ate lunch and chilled for a while, and then Emma, Tammie, Andre and I walked around in Newtown for a while, looking in shops - mainly book shops - and Andre bought a Brazilian Portuguese phrase-book for me =D I was very excited!!!
Then we just relaxed at church for a while, before heading home.
Here are some pics!

|The congregation grew and grew even after the service started. There were adults sitting in kids chairs! It was wonderful to see this church building so packed!!!|
|With the gorgeous Olivia. She is absolutely adorable! For some reason she took a liking to me, so spent the whole day around me :-)|
|Helping Sally and Andre in Sunday School with these kiddies - this sure took me back!!|
|Waiting for about half an hour in traffic to leave Sydney...|
|...okay, clearly, waiting is dangerous. It leads me to take silly pictures of myself, pointing to all of the stuff us girls had to bring for just one day out...|
|What's a road trip to Sydney without a Maccas stop?! ;-)|
|"Things that make you go 'mmmmmm'..." [is that ad even in existence anymore?!]|
Me, Emma and Tammie
Loved this day spent with friends, worshipping, and playing with kids!
