After the student conference, we drove to the outskirts of Oxford for the JHF UK AGM Meeting.
Then back to Basingstoke for Sunday and a chance to see former associates. Jeff & Rosie (at the bottom of this set) were our hosts during the week we stayed in Basingstoke. Sunday morning we were at Sue & Paul's church.
Photos from the area of the AGM meeting outside of Oxford. This was on Friday.
Sept 12 - Monday - The first day of our journey into Europe. First stop DOVER to catch the ferry to Calais then on directly to Edes, Holland for our meeting with our JHF-Netherlands Board. We spent the night there, then Tuesday on to Germany.
Because of the nature of our trip, most of what we saw was through the windshield and side window of the car--but no complaints!!! Headed to the meeting with our Netherlands Board.
After crossing into Germany, we stopped for a rest and Michael found a real German Pretzel (not as good as the ones made by our German-baker friend in CN, but good enough! Then we saw a nice sunset over a beautiful vineyard before finishing this part of the journey to where we would stay overnight.
Angelbachtal, Germany for meetings with one of our partners.
Then the next day to Bad Liebenzell for additional meetings. This village/town is just beautiful nestled in a valley in The Black Forest.
On Sept 16, we traveled through Germany into France. Our destination: Faremoutiers, France - Crecy La Chapelle
After Church on Sunday, we went to this 12th century (or older) village - Provins
Good-bye Europe. On Monday, we had to head back to England for the last few days of our journey.
Portsmouth, England and the Mary Rose Museum
That is the end of our wonderful journey. For many reasons, I did not post most of the meeting photos, but Michael and Doug really did have lots of meetings and speaking engagements during our three weeks. We are very grateful to all who made this trip possible and for the many who arranged each segment of the journey. We are looking forward to the next time we meet these wonderful folks again. Back in Hong Kong on Friday, Sept 24
