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.
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!
