Big Bumper Birthday Weekend: Day One of Three
I met Aaron, not having met the tortoise at all, when he was in a Youth Fellowship where I was helping to facilitate a Peace programme. This was shortly after the Frozen North got The Peace. Now he is cycling back home from Istanbul to Belfast. The tortoise whom he has met en route has inspired a short story for children and for all those who have ears to hear.
He's the sort of guy you'd love your own suns to meet and chat to some day, maybe when they're a bit older. Old enough to catch the call. Two days away from being eight is still a bit young for intercontinental cycling, but not for the tortoise story! I think you'd all love his blog.
Today we took thirteen boys to play pirate golf, and then discovered that there were in fact fourteen. One day down; two to go!
