TBT AGM 2009

Read time: 2 minutes

Tonight we had the annual general meeting (AGM) for TBT for 2009. Looking through the handout which briefly explains the events and activities of the year, I realize again how many initiatives TBT are involved in!

Report on MYC 2009

Read time: 5 minutes

From Wednesday the 15th to Sunday the 19th the annual MYC was held. This year it was held at Rocklands in Simonstown. This was the first time I ever attended MYC and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We were at a wonderful location, had awesome weather, great teachers, old friends to see again and very cool people to meet!

MYC is held yearly and was organised largely by St Paul's, the church I attend in Stellenbosch. This year it was comprised of Bible teachings, workshops and electives. But we still had a lot of time for fun. :-) Read more …
