Now What?

Here it is.  Our first update from the Dominican.  I feel like I should insert something profound here, but I honestly don’t know what to say – except that the last couple of weeks have been such a whirlwind, and I’m not sure I know which way is up.  The insanity started back before we even boarded the first plane.  For awhile there, I was living on adrenaline.  If it weren’t for help from our families, a couple of well-placed “angels” on the flights, and an amazing welcoming team on this side, I am convinced we would not have physically, emotionally or mentally made this move.  There are so many cool stories I could tell already of God’s overflowing blessings and provision for our family – and we’ve only been here a week!

Two awesome bits of news – we have a house and a vehicle!  The SUV we found is especially a big deal.  Procuring a good vehicle is often a more difficult part of settling in here.  I’m also excited that I’ve already met a few of our neighbors – hope they don’t mind that I’ll be practicing my Spanish on them over the next few months.  🙂

So we’re here.  Finally.

Now what?

Next steps – officially move in to the house, start language study, and help out with ministry stuff whenever possible.  Looking forward to the months ahead!

    Hey girl……so excited for you guys to finally be there. Grateful for the well placed angels God provided on your move there to serve Him. Can you guys Skype from there? I’d love to see you in person (well kinda in person) to make sure you’re sane and check in on a few things. Take care friend…we WILL see you next year!!

    The house looks great from the outside! I know the boys (and you) will enjoy the yard. Noah definitely likes his outdoor time. We miss you so much, but it’s really exciting to see how God is putting things in place. I’m so glad that you get to pick out new stuff for your home–I’m already thinking of ways to decorate! We love you soooooo much and couldn’t be more proud to be a part of your lives. Give the guys hugs and kisses and some weird noises from Grandma!!!!!
