Well, I know it has been a while. So here is my attempt to update you with what we have been up to, starting with Mark. As you probably all realise it is very expensive for us to live here in the States with Mark only being able to work 20 hours a week and with the New Zealand dollar being so bad against the US. So in an attempt to help us finish seminary as quickly as possible Mark went to England and Scotland on a seminary trip which will equate to 3 classes. It was a great trip which he thoroughly enjoyed. The classes included were Church History 2, Puritians and History of British Christianity. It has meant that his entire summer has been taken up with school work but it does mean that he will be able to graduate in December of this year. Something the whole family is looking forward to. Here is a few ramdom photos of his trip.
