Update

I have tried and tried to post pictures from the last few days and notta. I am not sure what is going on but will try to post some soon. We are doing well. We may have found a place to live... more on that tomorrow. We have walked and walked and walked. It has been a good week and I can't believe how fast it has gone. The children are adjusting well. We are still praying to find those special friends. (for all of us) We covet your prayers now more than ever. Please don't forget to pray for us. We are praying for you too. Every time I think about home and what I miss... I pray. Which is a lot. God grants much peace when needed. I am anxious to learn the language. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love to talk. It is so hard not to just have a conversation with the grocer. I get that from my Grandma. Words are coming but Jon definitely has an ear for it. They say those with a musical ear learn so much quicker. I don't have a chance then. I love music though. Maybe that will count for something. We are working into a routine which will be helpful for us as we adjust to this new culture. Finishing school is our number one priority after signing a contract for an apartment. I am finding how much the Word of God is just part of everything I need. God is so good. I am so thankful for His living Word. I can't wait to share it. After all that is why we came. I didn't give up family for nothing I did it for the sake of lost souls. I must be reminded of that. It gets me thru till the next day. And that it will all take time and it is a process. I can't believe we have been here for 23 days. Can you?

Hi!! I wanted to stop by and say 'welcome to this side of the pond!'. The Brinlee's are excited to have you over here! Ken & Carrie arrive tomorrow (I think) to oversee another miss. work. If you ever need to get away ( I know you need to actually be in your country for a bit and settle in-haha) but we've got a guest room and live 45 min. from Jon & Amanda. Have a great week!
