                                                 True Matthew home anywhere!

...with Allan who did a wonderful job of organising the whole event, 
and looking after Matthew when Iain was unable to travel at the last minute. 

                                                                Thanks Allan and Ann!!!!!

 And just to prove they really did make it to Paris
L'Arc de Triomphe
And the Eiffel Tower!

 Rounding off with worship at the Scots Kirk in Paris
with stunning banners made by our lovely ladies in St Margarets Church, Dunfermline
with a special medal for Matthew,

 Team Turtle, 
who made it all the way from China to Scotland...
......and cycled all the way from Zeebrugge to Paris
 to help to change the lives of so many girls in Guangxi who have so little.

These are the last few days to dig deep and make all his efforts worthwhile.
Thank you so much to all who have already donated, sent good wishes, prayers for this event.
