Confirmands Camp 2009
During the weekend of 14th & 15th February 2009 all the confirmands came together for a weekend in Paihia. The motive and purpose for this weekend was for the Confirmands of the North Island to get to know each other before the day of confirmation. It was also an opportunity to prepare the confirmands for the confirmation blessing by the District Apostle. The Saturday morning there was a very early start for all with all present in the camp by midday. Everyone sorted their sleeping areas and entertained themselves at the campsites pool, the teachers prepared sausage rolls for lunch, and after lunch the teachers and Confirmands joined in a game of volleyball. The evening was spent with some interactive team exercises. Sunday early breakfast with service with the Paihia congregation, where we also said farewell to Sister Audrey Griffin who was moving to Auckland. After fellowship with the congregation we all made our way home, with fond and blessed memories of a wonderful weekend.
