Saying goodbye

cake.jpgBoth Dean and I have both finished work now. I had my last day at Abbot’s Hill school on Tuesday 10th July. It was really sad to say goodbye to all my friends and collegues. I want to say thank you to everyone for all the suppport and encouragement you have shown me. I shall miss Abbot’s Hill very much, teaching, laughing and especially the delicious lunches.. Mmmm. Dean did the last X:site of the term on Monday and it was great to see so many people down at the Works. Kerry Anne had made a book with comments from lots of young people and their families. It was lovely to read all the messages and we shall take this with us to Bolivia to remember everyone and give us a boost when things are difficult. Our next job is to find someone to rent our house (3 bedrooms, quiet location etc. if you know anyone) and start packing up all our stuff. Keep in touch.’ title=’Crossover Clubbers’>Crossover Clubbers<a href=’http://

  1. Ever since big crunch three years ago, i knew dean and ruth would play a big part in my life. I never had even thought about a christian life until i met them and i am so proud of both of them for helping me lead my life the way it should be, and to proove that i got baptised on mothers day last year. Deans helped me through so much, probaly more than he actually knows of. I just hope that God will be looking down at Dean and Ruth and helping them as much as he can in there journey of a lifetime to bolivia. I will be praying all the time for the both of you and i really hope i get to see you again, even if that means getting everybody together for a trip to bolivia ( now that would be cool ) have a great time guys, i will miss you loads.
    God bless
