So I finally led my first two services in Montenegro yesterday. It was strange being stood there responsible for proceedings. I was pleased with how they went and how I had prepared and how I responded to different things that happened. I have also learnt some lessons for next week, the most challenging being my sentence construction! It seems the way I write in English can make it difficult to translate into Montenegrin. So this week I’ll need some lessons in English grammar before I can even try to resolve that problem!
The weather turned last night from days of 20+ degrees to thunderstorms. I went running in the rain this morning – one of my favourite past times but certainly guaranteed to get a few looks from passers-by here. People try to stay out of bad weather when they can.
Other than that it looks like we’re almost beginning to get a routine which is important otherwise your time gets sucked away. Week 3….here we go….
