By the seventh day God had finished his work. On the seventh day he rested from all his work. God blessed the seventh day. He made it a Holy Day Because on that day he rested from his work, all the creating God had done. This is the story of how it all started, of Heaven and Earth when they were created. Gen 2:2-4
REST: cease work or movement in order to relax, refresh oneself, or recover strength. If we never rest we never recover strength. Without strength it is very difficult to carry out our purpose. The Indian ocean provided a beautiful backdrop to rest after a very busy 2 weeks of working together with 2 teams from British Columbia and Alberta who had come to Africa to be a blessing to the village of Tabora.
