UK here we come!

On Saturday we held a farewell event, attended by lots and lots of friends and supporters - the church hall was very packed. Thanks to all who came and enjoyed a British style high tea. Our whole family was appropriately dressed, in home-decorated T-shirts. Please quietly hum "Land of Hope and Glory" as you peruse the photo to the left...

Sadly, we also learned on this day that Matt's intended supervisor in the UK, Anthony Thiselton, is very unwell. If you are a pray-er, please pray for him and his family at this time. We are unsure what this will mean for the supervision of Matt's research, but trust that God has things under control.

We are now in close-to-leaving mode, selling off items, collecting visas, getting the house ready for our departure, finishing things up at work, buying webcams and stuff so we can stay in touch... it's all go go go! We're looking forward to having a bit of a holiday when we finally reach the glorious motherland, before Matt begins his commitments at the University in late September.
