Duncan eventually clambered out of his hole (see Lamp Light) realising the error of his ways he decided to fix …
At the end of the meeting one of the female leaders came up to me and said something I have never forgotten – ‘God is going to do great things through you.’ She meant well, but I honestly believe it was one of the worst things she could have said.
Despite the mishaps we enjoyed our day. If we had parked up and remained at the Visitor Centre we would have missed so much. Okay, there was stuff to do there, stuff to eat there, stuff to buy there. But the Centre only gives a hint of what there is to experience in and around the Elan Valley. Our photographs cannot begin to describe some of the stunningly beautiful scenery we viewed.
Duncan thought about this for a few minutes and then decided to go for it! Why not? He had God’s promise of a light to guide him! Duncan opened the door and stepped out into the pitch black, at which point his lantern began to glow. But there seemed to be something wrong with it – it’s light did not cast very far around Duncan at all – in fact he could only see a few steps ahead at a time. “Are you sure God?” Duncan asked “You’re on the right path Dunc just keeping walking forwards.”
