Arrival

September 5, 2005

Bonjour from the beautiful southern French town of Montpellier!

Our trip went smoothly with next to no glitches. Saturday evening, the students were met by their French host families at the Montpellier train station. Yesterday (Sunday), we had our first field trip to three coastal towns including some time to swim on a volcanic beach.

Classes begin this morning. The students seem to be upbeat and looking forward to getting into class.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I think our student media committee will have an update ready by the end of the week.

Grace and Peace,

Matthew, for Jeanette and James
