After 24 years of hanging-out with NZ Baptists I was farewelled as Principal of Carey Baptist College at last week's Baptist Assembly.
Me ol' mate Andrew Picard was one who gave a speech using various cricketing jargon to get his point across. A fellow cricket fan, Andrew had even contacted the Black Caps (the NZ cricket team) in Bangladesh and got them all to sign a T-shirt for me and send it back to NZ. GULP?! He then presented it to me on the night... how cool is that? I even have photos to prove it!
These might be the best available images of the Black Caps for the next few weeks as they are about to take on the might of a wounded Australia. Just as well I am over here in rural Ohio for two weeks (speaking at a missions' conference in my father-in-law's church) with limited access to news... Still - I reckon they'll offer a shock or two along the way.
