Well we made it...finally...this was the roadtrip that never ended. We crossed Indiana, Tennessee, Georgia and then into Florida...however the Georgia leg just went on and on with traffic congestion and roadwork. The trip times were: Christmas Day - 12.45pm - 11.30pm; Boxing Day 8am - 1am the next day... we kept stops to a minimum so I hate to think how long we actually spent in the cars.

Florida is close to the equator, so its tropical here. Winter, but like Spring in NZ. Not a cloud in the sky with temperatures that make it T shirt and shorts most of the time. Its pretty laid back - reading, eating, playing with Rhys and binging on playstation - massive Tiger Woods Golf challenges with the in-laws. Kristen's brother Kyle is scarily good on playstation...

The cousins are getting on really well - it is cool to think that they will each have these distant cousins they'll get to meet at various times in their lives that will give them a window into another culture and country.

Anyways, we're out for the evening with Kyle's in-laws so better be sociable! Their house is on a canal! The car is parked in the driveway - the boat is parked out back in the canal! Or I should sau suspended above the canal - because of the storm surge risk during hurricane season the jetties are equipped with "lifts"!

    They live the tough life in Florida don't they. Could it be a possible place for a Cession Church plant?

    Hurricanes would be scary there though.

    have you got a hotmail address big guy. We just got a webcam and I installed MSN Messenger. Now we can have live, free video chats with anyone anywhere in the country or overseas.

    Kristen's bro would love us to plant - the family is struggling to find a church that fits them...a sacrifice for Christ it would be...

    Yeah we do have hotmail, just not active here - but we have webcam all set up at home

    See you in a week or so!

    Looking forward to seeing you again. Can I actually say I miss you? It shows that even with my strange work hours I have managed to build relationships with people I truly consider friends. I miss Jacob and Melissa at the moment as well.... they've been away for the week and are back on Tuesday. Ooooh, this is one of those feel good moments.
