The Battye update on life at present…

Hey everyone! Thought I might write on what’s happening in our lives at present….

Well, lately I’ve really been enjoying life in general. I’ve been enjoying working at Aranda house, a Therapeutic Community drug and alcohol program. My wife was with Centrelink, but her contract just ran out. But surpringly, I am not too worried. I believe she will find something else that she will enjoy. In fact, I’m trusting God for it. I told her not to worry, relax and enjoy being at home doing what she wants to do really. Time out is often good for one, isn’t it? After all, Yvonne’s health hasn’t been too good, with her heart racing over 150bpm while doing absolutely nothing. If you ever feel like praying for her, please do so! She’s a good woman, I’d like to have her around for a while!

I’ve really been focussing on learning Pitjantjatjara lately. At work, there are clients who have been teaching me Pitjantjatjara, it’s been fun interacting with them this way. I’ve decided to focus on that language as there are quite a few I could learn, but I’ve actually been interested in this language for some years really, so living here where it’s so accessible is a great opportunity for me.

I also found a memory building site, where you can learn any language, just about. It’s called Memrise. www.memrise.com it’s real good, if ya ever wanna check it out. I’ve posted words I’ve learnt on there, put pictures to it and made levels and gone through it to help me remember it. It’s quite fun to do really.

I’ve also been continuing my studies in Cert 4 Alcohol and Other Drugs. I’ve completed one unit this year and just finished another workbook, which will be another unit, just needs to be assessed now. Overall, I am halfway through the cert 4. Can’t wait till it’s all done, will be great.

I’ve been back to writing songs now, as I have just purchased a guitar – a Fender T-Bucket 400CE – it’s quite nice, I really like it. I enjoy getting on there and just worshipping Jesus, it’s what it was made for I reckon. Worshipping God is what we are made for.

Well, nothing else is really happening, so I’ll leave it there for now. Hope you’re all well, and God bless you and be at peace…

Rob 🙂
