5 Days in Nashville

Arrived in Nashvile flying via Denver and having to change to a very small little plane ( much prefer the bigger ones!!) We were picked up by a lovely couple from Oasis Church. He is a local boy and calls us Miss Hilary and Miss Leigh .....so cute!I love it...so very southern! She is an Aussie girl from Qld and they just got engaged.

We spent wonderful 5 days in Nashville. After settling in and spending hours pricing all our stock, we had the wonderful opportunity to visit Mercy Ministries headquarters in Nashville and Leigh shared with the girls about what we do in Cambodia. It was so inspiring visiting their fantastic facilities and spending time with the girls living there.

Nashville is a lovely town and very spread out.The town centre is fairly small and we saw the honky tonk bars and music halls it is famous for, being the music capital of the USA. It is so pretty and green as it is coming into Spring and the pink and white flowering Dogwood trees are very pretty. It is known as allergy capital in the USA because of all the pollens. There are so many churches in this place- many of them have huge buildings. Tenessee is part of the bible belt south.

The women's Conference at Oasis church was fantastic and Leigh preached really well at all her sessions as well as 3 services on the Sunday. Met many amazing people who were so supportive of what we are doing.

After church on Sunday afternoon Jill took us to visit the small historic town of Franklin. It was famous for being the site of bloodiest battle in the civil war. It was your typical very cute small town in America. I over indulged at this icecream place where you serve yourself with different flavours of ice-cream, sauce toppings and lolly add ons..wicked!! They work out the price by the weight of it...mine was very heavy and cost $7!!!
