Our Trip to Auckland

~A little over a week ago Dad took Emmaline, Nicolea, Felicity, and me (Jillian) up to Auckland to the New Zealand National Maritime Museum, because it is free for all people living in our county this month. This was our first family outing since we came into the country of New Zealand. We all enjoyed it tons even though we had to do it in three shifts as we only have a five passenger car we are renting!!! The day before Dad took us he took Matthew, Ezra, Mercy, and Malachi, and and Mom will take Linda, and Alicia soon Lord willing. We had a great time on our trip up there, it was SO much fun to get out for the day and do sight seeing. I am going to put up the pictures of the city and harbour. I will post pictures from the New Zealand National Maritime Museum later as there is a lot of them!

Cranes for loading the ships with containers. There is a ship on the left side of the cranes if you can make it out. It was pretty neat watching them load the ship.

New Zealand is beautiful! I am sure you look back amazed at all God has done in bringing you thru 4 (exciting) years of deputation to put you in NZ!

God Bless You all!

I always wanted to visit New Zealand, such a beautiful country. That is neat that your mom can drive there, I have to get a Spanish driver's license which means I have to go to school, do practice hours, and then take a written and practical test! I have been driving for over 30 years...and it costs over $1000 to do all that. Hope you all get a van soon that meets your family's needs.
