It was our secret plan to figure out who were our committed student leaders :) Just kidding, but students did brave the terrible weather to come hear about what we hope to see happen on campus this year. We were all soaked and sat around little heaters as we shared the importance of meeting students the first week of campus. They are troopers! We had 14 students come to our training, and each one is committed to serving the Lord and making an impact in Wellington this year. And what a blessing these students are! It made me smile as I looked around the room at everyone all wet and cold, but still trying to think of ways we can love the students on campus this year.
Anyway, as if we didn't learn our lesson in the morning, some girls and I decided to venture out later again that night to see a play.
(let me just note - this is summer. winter coats...and still technically summer. not complaining, just saying... ;) )
Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. It was supposed to be at the Botanic Gardens, but fortunately it was moved to Old Saint Paul's Cathedral (due to the weather).
It is such a beautiful old wooden church. The play is hilarious, and we all had a great time.
So that is how we survived the 'weather bomb'. A cold, wet, nasty day. But that didn't stop these Wellingtonians from making the best of it!
Aren't they cute? :)
