We do hope that you have been enjoying the holidays where ever you may be! We are safely tucked away in Slip D5 at Mooloolaba Yacht Club, Queensland, Australia enjoying another season here. We continue to enjoy the sun, surf, sandy beaches, birds, opals - all Australia has to offer.
We are busy preparing the boat to head north to Thailand this April, in between traveling to Melbourne on January 8-22 for a church conference and to Maui and Colorado for the birth of our first grandchild (a boy!) on February 21 returning to Brisbane on April 1. Jason and Eric will remain aboard to complete boat projects and have six weeks with no parents around!
If you have internet connection, please look for our Christmas Letter 2003 with pictures at peaceandaloha.com. If you do not have access to our website and are not able to wait for your snail mail hard copy of our Christmas Letter 2003 with pictures, please email us at KH7JL@winlink.org and we will be happy to send it via email (it is quite long with no picture!). While we are here in Mooloolaba, we are able to receive long letters with pictures at email@example.com. We would love to hear about your lives during the past year and see pictures. We do appreciate those Christmas cards which we have already received here in Australia. Thank you very much for remembering us halfway around the world.
We wish you joy, harmony, abundance, peace and aloha in 2004! God Bless you and keep you safe!
With Love, Peace and Aloha,
Ellen, David, Jason and Eric
