The last couple of weeks we’ve been in California, enjoying seeing close friends and family for the first time in over a year. The trip was a lot of fun, and it was great to just spend time hanging out with friends, catching up, and enjoying the beautiful weather… I even had the chance to go surfing one day, thankfully avoiding the sharks but realising that I need quite a bit more practice yet…!

We were also able to speak at our supporting church in Petaluma, to let them know a bit more about Bible translation around the world and the work that we’re doing. We always enjoy visiting the church, and are made to feel very much at home even though we’re only able to be there so rarely.

One of the exciting parts of hanging out with our friends was getting to know better their young children, who are much changed since the last time we saw them in December 2009! Here are some photos from the trip…
