This has been an eventful year but you wouldn't know it by looking at this blog... :)
After moving into the village in January we began the long process of building our home. We had lots of hiccups along the way but are thankfully at the end of it soon and hope to be moving in after Christmas. Thank the Lord!
We also enjoyed this year of getting to know our new neighbors. It has been rewarding and challenging as we learn about their culture and make lots of mistakes. For the most part they have been very welcoming and patient with us. We've picked up only
bits and pieces of their language(s) and plan to get started on language and culture learning soon.

We just said goodbye to Dennis' parents yesterday. They came with a team from Canada who was here for a month helping us with the house. It was so great to have the team here- a real encouragement to us and a lot of help! Dennis' parents stayed for an additional week or so after the team left and we had a wonderful time with them.
