Week One-Unpacking and Settling In

It's a strange feeling to arrive in a new country and know that this will be where you will spend the next two years, and possibly many more.  It's even stranger still when it feels good.

Maybe it's too early, maybe the other shoe will drop next week, or next month but for now I'm riding the wave of feeling like we're exactly where we're supposed to be right now.

The team of women I am privileged to work with

We know there will be challenges, and language is just one of them.  The other is figuring out what to do with all of the 11 suitcases of stuff we traveled down with, when we don't have any furniture-it's a lesson in making due with what you have and resourcefulness!

We are looking forward to the weeks and years to come, to see where God will put us to work here where it's evident He is already changing lives.

Here are a few photos from our first week:
