Thank you God for this blessing - please use our lives everyday that we may glorify you and abide in your will. Keep us humble so we may bring HONOR to your NAME. "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:19
The kids were very excited about having two new dogs that came from the house (Luna and Tenoche). They are old dogs but the kids fell in love right from the beginning. After figuring out the few items that were needed for the house, Sean and Celso (a friend from Villa Milagro) set up beds and then soon afterwards Celso took me to the city area to find groceries and house items. This was quiet a journey because there is no one stop Wal-mart. One of the biggest differences I saw was having less choices (which may be a good thing) in the stores compared to what is in the States. Also items are packaged smaller. I realized how spoiled our family has been in America by having the extra large cereal boxes. I can see River and Sailor now in the morning finishing one box in a setting with the smaller boxes here:) Riding through town reminds me of a roller-coaster with cars honking, swerving from lane to lane, and people walking everywhere as if they are care-free about a car coming head on right towards them. My heart was racing the whole time but everyone in the car seemed like this was normal. (Just going to take some getting used to). We are going to clean the house tomorrow and unpack the luggage (very thankful it ALL arrived). We also wanted to thank you all for your prayers for safe arrival to Peru. (By the way, Autumn is so cute...she keeps calling Peru - "Pu" and it makes everyone smile).
