Grüße aus Stuttgart und wilkommen nach Deutschland!
It looks like you all are having wonderful time in Europe and having a great experience as well. I am sure you will also have a great time at the conference in Leipzig, a historic city in what used to be East Germany.
I was so hoping to get to see you while you were here. All the years I have lived in Germany, I have not had the chance to get up to Leipzig. Berlin is also a great city; too bad you won't have time to see more of it. You will just have to come back.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to get up to Leipzig due to an unexpected business trip on Friday that takes me to south to Zürich, but I wish all of you a wonderful time in this interesting country and also the experiences you will have with young people from all over the world!
Greetings to Lynn Turner as she continues to do such a great job in her ministry and leadership!
Ich wünsche dir eine gute Reise !!

Well, we are assuming you are in Prague now. Hope the trip was uneventful and that everyone arrived safely. We sent Nick an email yesterday but for some reason it didn't go through except for the part...Hi to Nick...so hi to Nick again. We look forward to hearing all about your adventures before meeting up with the group in Slovakia as well as your time doing mission work, sight seeing, etc. We miss you and can't wait to see you on August 4. Thanks to all who gave Nick a big hug when they saw him last Wednesday!! Ha! Ha! Enjoy the rest of your trip and just know that we are holding each of you in our prayers for good health, good times, and safety. Hope the sunrise in Slovakia was as beautiful as I could imagine it to be!! Love to all and especially to Nick...Mom and Dad also known as Martha and Roy Greetings from Jordan as well!!

Our projects are complete and we just finished our devotional and watched a slide show with 900 images. Tonight we pack and leave for Prague in the morning after breakfast. I know that everyone has enjoyed the fellowship with our Slovak guests. Peter and his church family have been wonderful hosts and many of the youth will miss them. We leave knowing that this partnership will continue as it has now for 9 years.

Wow! What a trip for you!!! We are so happy that you did not have any other glitches that prevented you from joining the group. We know you are having an exciting time doing this hands- on mission work. Perhaps you will be seeing some of your friends from four years ago at the BWA in Hong Kong.Jay is hoping to meet up with you while in Germany. Remember that you are loved, and all of you are being prayed for.

Our group just returned from our projects which included landscaping, demolition, and much painting. The projects were at the local primary school and the orphanage where we will go tonight. Everyone is to meet for dinner at 5:00 PM then we'll interact with the young people there.
We made it well after many delays and 29 hours of travel. Everyone just finished breakfast and we are all ready to start our work at the church and orphanage.
We met some of our other group last night and they will be traveling back today. All for now as we are preparing to leave for our work.

It's now packing time as our Wednesday departure nears. It's starting to get real and our family is excited about what the trip will bring. I can't believe it was 4 years ago when we were in Hong Kong for the last Youth Conference. We made many friends and learned a lot about other cultures. Living with the local youth for 3 days in the camp brought us very close. I still communicate with a few friends that I met in Hong Kong. The previous conference was very meaningful for both Ashley and me.
Hopefully you'll get to share in our experience through this journal.
