I know it has been a while since my last post. The internet has been very unstable. I do hope that you are still keeping us in your prayers.
1. We are moving into our new home on July 1. I am so excited and can't really believe it is actually happening. We have been living out of suitcases for so long that a place to call our own is a huge blessing. God has given us a four year contract which will keep us in the country!!! We were not expecting this. He is sooo faithful. (That doesn't mean we can't come home for special events...like weddings and other important events.)
2. We went to the Police Station to register more paperwork. After four hours we left having been able to sign our names, leave our fingerprints and fill out all kinds of forms. The children sat there the entire time. They were sooo good.
3. Everyone here knows Springfield though...They smile and say "Bart Simpson", it is our ice breaker now...it seems to get some laughs and make the mood lighter.
4. Just a note. Please keep us in your prayers. Days are hard here. We show you the hi lights and there are definitely low lights. The days sure do go by fast. God is faithful and we TRUST him.
5. Jon's parents are coming down for a visit this week. They are working in Austria and can come by train. They are helping us get settled into our new place a bit. More than anything it will be nice to see them.
6. We will be wrapping up our school year this week. YAY!! On Wednesday I will be going to the school the children will be attending. Please pray for this situation. I will be taking an interpreter and I am just praying the children will be accepted with open arms even though they don't know the language. WILL YOU PRAY TOO? This for me has been the hardest part of letting go of leaving home. The children and their education. We have to learn the language quickly!!
THANK YOU for ALL you do back home. We are soo grateful for your prayers and support. We miss you so much but are learning that where God wants us is where we want to be. Please leave us some comments. They are always an encouragement.
