les Davey de France

Alan and Pat live and work in Bordeaux. Alan is a pastor and Pat was a nurse. Now we work with UFM worldwide. Read on! (If you'd like to know what took us to Bordeaux, then start with the archives from September 2004)

14th July

Well it's the National Day today, and it's Thursday, which coincides with our Bible Study.

On 14th July there's various things going on. There's usually a parade in most towns. In Bordeaux this will be a small military parade with firefighters, police and soldiers, a military band and various funky official vehicles. In Pessac I think everyone is invited to parade. The Mairie has said to come dressed in blue, red or white, or to get a tee-shirt from the town hall. We'll probably sneak in and observe from the sidelines somewhere...

Then this afternoon at the park at the end of the road where we used to live there's an vintage farm display.

Then this evening in Bordeaux and in Pessac there will be fireworks.

So what's the plan?

Pizza at 6pm and Bible Study on Ruth 3, then into Bordeaux for the fireworks.
