I am a little annoyed - well actually I am more than a little annoyed! The last few weeks Genesis has been organising a conference of church leaders to be held in Douala. I was asked to be in the worship team, which I was pretty excited about. I had a week of rehearsals with the rest of the team. Learning songs in french and various dialects. The dialects were easier than French!! The conference is due to start on Tuesday, we have been sorting out a hotel for us to stay in (which was harder than it sounds, double bookings etc). We had it all sorted Joe would stay in the hotel while I was at the conference then in the afternoons we would do something in Douala then find a nice restaurant to eat in.
So this week the organisation leaders arrived from Mauritius and started changing everything. So many things Genesis has organised are now completely changed. Including the worship group. They think that you only need 3 singers instead of the 6 that we had in the group, so I got dropped. Three days before I am due to go!! I was looking forward to it. I enjoy singing and the Africans are great at it. So many people at the conference would make it a great atmosphere. I could still go but I am not a church leader so would not really benefit me and it would be a waste of our money.
So I am pretty annoyed. Genesis is also pretty annoyed. He feels he has worked so hard in preparation for the conference then the team arrive and change everything.
So I will not be getting my 4 cheese pizza I have been lusting after. Will have to stick to buying laughing cow triangles from the local shop.
