Day 42: Fredericton to Moncton 178 km

We started our day at 6:30 am fresh from our day off! The morning the sky was cloud covered as we left Fredericton. We followed the St. John river for about 50 km then left the river valley to head south to Moncton. photo 2

The sun came out and it was a beautiful day. We made great time. Once we left the river valley the road had a gentle roll up and down, through dense forest and then into some some really fine farm land. photo 3(1)Coffee break at about the 60 km mark is part of our routine each day.  Normally it’s in the RV but today it was so nice we sat outdoors. photo(132)As we came into Moncton we came across a new crop we have not seen yet… Sunflowers!  photo 4We are being hosted tonight by St. Georges and St. Phillips Anglican Churches. Dinner was great, one of my favorites, roast beef. We were too focused to even look at the camera.

Tonight was no exception, it was a great time of interaction  sharing the story of our journey and the need for clean water. DSC_6357Another great day on an amazing journey!

Day 41: Day off in Fredericton

We are being hosted by the Cornerstone Church. They have been really good to us, with dinner last night before we made our presentation, then lunch today after the service. Thank you folks at Cornerstone!DSC_6243Today an amazing thing happened; a fellow at the service donated a drilling truck. He purchased it second hand a few years ago with the desire that it would be used in Africa. He ordered all the parts then his repair guy left town for work elsewhere. It has sat at the back of his car dealership since. So today he gave it to us! He said he will have it all fixed, painted and put it on a better truck and even pay to have it shipped to Africa. Wow! Thank you Jerry and Diane!DSC_6272After lunch we had the most wonderful relaxing afternoon. Our hosts live on the bank of the St. John River and have a pool. We really enjoyed the quiet afternoon. Jacquie and Richard did a little kayaking on the river. DSC_6296

Richard got the clippers out so we all got a little trim except Jacquie.  DSC_6293What a encouraging and relaxing day in Fredericton. Just what the doctor ordered.
