We Have Arrived in Bogotá

We have arrived in Bogotá.  We are living temporarily in a guest house owned by the mission until we can find permanent housing.  The last few days have been spent on processing our paperwork to keep us legal here, finding our way around, and just trying to adjust to our new life here in Colombia.  Everyone that we have met has been very kind and has made us feel welcome.  We are easing back into a life of speaking Spanish everyday, everywhere we go.... and we are finding (Praise the Lord!) that it is coming back to us!

We are starting to look at permanent housing options, but have not found just the right place yet.  We are praying that God will put us exactly where He wants us.  Friday we will be visiting the school that Christian and Preston will be attending.  We need to finish up the admissions process so that they can start school on Monday.  Their long, extended Christmas break is quickly coming to an end.  They are looking forward to it with nervous anticipation.

Please pray that they will make friends quickly and settle into their new school and life here in Bogotá.  Pray also for John Robert.  It doesn't seem right to be so far away from him.  Things seem to be falling in place for him to come visit over his spring break which is only 5 weeks away.  That has helped us deal with him not being here with us.

We are anxious to get the necessary details done so that we can begin the true work that God has led us to do.  Pray that God will put the people in our path that He wants us to impact for Him.  We are excited to see just how his plan will unfold.  It's exciting to have this blank slate to allow Him to work amazingly here in Bogotá!
