With just a few months left in the States we finally went to a football game. Several youth from Buck Run attend a school just across the road from us called Franklin County so quite a crowd from church attend their games. We tailgated first (BBQ next to the car) and then went to the game. The school band and cheerleaders all made for a very American atmosphere.
This is Rachel with our wonderful Youth Pastor Zack and his wife Jennifer and their little boy John Owen. They work tirelessly with the youth and are greatly appreciated.

We took a New Zealand family who have moved to Louisville for seminary out hiking to one of our favourite places. We have been out to the Natural Bridge several times now and have always loved it out there. It is great to have some other New Zealanders near by and exciting for New Zealand to have more men willing to come over here to study the Word. We are just sad that they have only just got here and we are about to leave.
Due to the generosity of a dear friend I was able to take Anna-Marie and her friend Bobbie to the World Equestrian Games. They were held here in Kentucky just about 20 mins from Frankfort at the Kentucky Horse Farm. This was the first time they had ever been held outside of Europe. It was great to be there and to attend one of the events.

A few weeks ago Mark went with the boys and some friends on a camping trip to the Red River Gorge while us girls were at a sleep over to end a summer book study that we have been doing. We had been studying a book called, "Girls Gone Wise, In a world Gone Wild" by Mary Kassian. It is one of the best books I have read for teenage girls and was a great study, and a great group of girls.
