Travel Studies Updates
Down Ancient Paths Travel Study led by Charles Nienkirchen
Dates: July 23 – August 4
I'll be leading a Down Ancient Paths venture on the Viking Trail to Scandinavia (Norway/Denmark/Sweden). What do we most need? Physical safety, good health, spiritual sensitivity and an overall hospitably friendly environment that is conducive to our learning experience.
We want to be guided by the Holy Spirit in all the places we go and people we meet...through all that is planned and unplanned. May the Lord generously grant to us his serendipities which will make us even more alive to his Presence.
English Educational Travel Study led by Jonathan Goossen and Darren Dyck
Dates: April 28-May 13
We thank God that the trip was a great success in every way.
Really, of all the things that could have gone wrong, none of them did. Students were in good spirits and health, and were good-natured throughout; everyone was gracious and mature. All aspects of the itinerary went according to, and even better than planned. Students had several extraordinary learning experiences, both at historical sites and in archives and libraries, seeing and exploring places and manuscripts that they would never been exposed to apart from the trip. Even the weather was splendid: only two half-days of rain in our two weeks there.
So thanks be to God for his protection and blessing, and to all who prayed for us.
Choir Travel Study led by Don Quantz and Barb de Bruyn
Dates: May 1 – 13
You prayed that we would:
- Glorify God in all of our performances and travelling.
- We did! We were able to connect well with each of the churches that we visited and were a good witness to our coach driver!
- Be safe in our travels – both on the plane there and back and in country
- We all were quite safe using the tourist busses and the underground in London!
- We had a wonderful driver who kept us quite safe and away from traffic tie-ups, so we were able to see more of the actual countryside. He gave us good advice about one potentially difficult accommodation (challenging to access with the coach and far away from the town where we were performing) and we were able to secure another hotel for all of us!
- Build community as a group and be able to share that with the people we meet
- We were able to build community with each of the churches where we performed and the students had a great time with each other. It was the easiest trip that Don and I have been on: there were no issues.
- Be able to sleep each night
- Most of us were able to sleep well and Don had many nights in a private room which helped with his sleep.
All in all, we had a great time and I am so glad that this tour worked out so well for Don’s last time as a tour leader.
