News from south Moravia

Raph writes, "Everything is going well here, the weather is nice and sunny.  Yesterday Kripper and Becky went on a hike up a mountain near a lake with Honza and a whole group of young people from the church — they enjoyed it!

I think Jonathan & Debbie know the place.  We went on a walk around the village with the small children.  Today we left for church at 7:30, the service was from 8:30 to 10:30, then a bit of fellowship and we were back at Karel's place before noon.  We all had lunch together; Ivana making the famous dumplings with gravy which was quite nice.

Now Camille is taking a nap with Amos and I am watching the kids at a playground (see photo, below).  Becky is taking a nap at Karel's.  Her and Krip are staying at Karel's house and Camille and the kids are at his parent's place just a few hundred meters down the road.

They have a really lovely garden with lots of fruit trees and plants.  The region is famous apparently for vines and apricots.

Tomorrow there is a sort of informal church picnic and we'll meet lots of people we know (already saw some today).  There's also the Austerlitz battfield we're going to visit on Tuesday.

Hope all is well.  Lots of love from us all!"
