Just wanted to say hello and thank all of you who are praying for us. Corrie shared that we moved into our rental yesterday. It was an interesting experience getting it ready. The landlord "Buyo" is super kind and did a great job cleaning and painting the place. I spent most of my time in the bathrooms. We have two bathrooms with showers, sinks and toilets. The two showers didn't work so I attempted to rework the plumbing a bit. Now we have two showers that look like the ones you use at summer camp with all the pvc/galvanized pipe exposed. They work okay now. We bought one small water heater for one of the bathrooms for now and hope to get another one soon for the other.
I have learned a lot about the differences of "wants" and "needs". I often say I need a lot of things when in reality, I just want them. (This excludes cookie dough and peanut butter). We can get by without a lot more than we think. I used to blame Corrie for being the one who wanted the creature comforts, but in reality it is me that needs/wants them. In reality things are good and we are so grateful to have a place so close to Jason and Emilee's/Group housing.
Please pray as we continue to adjust and also prepare for the EMI team that is coming. This is the team that is going to work on the master-plan of the village property. They arrive on March 19th.
