Greetings Family and Friends! This is our last entry from Down Under! Tomorrow night is our farewell dinner with our 15 students, then we head back to the US! Here are some highlights from the last few weeks! Thanks everyone for e-mails, prayers, and good thoughts. See you soon!

We spent our Easter Spring Break (autumn here) at SeaWorld on the Gold Coast.

We spent a few days on a working cattle station in the bush country of Central Queensland. After a 4-wheel drive tour with the owner, Mia, Natalie, and Jeannie took a horseback ride.

Australia is blessed with rich mineral resources, one of them is sapphires! We spent a day fossicking with the Brown Family in Rubyvale. We didn't strike it rich but we did have a gem of a time. Neil was sure we had found TowMater (is there anyone who hasn't seen the movie CARS?). The last photo shows an Australian culinary delight - Wedges!
