Settling in, but still learning

We’ve been here over a month, and I’m a little bit confused by things at the moment.  My expectations of the move couldn’t have been more wrong– but in most ways still better than I anticipated.  I feel completely blessed by our flat, our location within the city, our access to the world and even our language classes.  But there are challenges that have yet to be processed, and I’m praying that God helps us figure it all out.  We’ve crossed over a barrier-  we’re used to being in Russia for around a month, but have no idea how it’s going to feel to stay for a longer duration.  I know I’m gloomy today, and Miki and Isa have had their moments as well.  God gave us this home.  Please pray that He helps us learn how to make it our home.

St. John’s UMC has a team coming to visit on Monday.  We pray for their safe travels and for the Lord to give us all exactly what we need in the coming days.

  1. Glad to hear from you guys on here! We are praying for you at KUMC! Can’t wait to hear about all the things God is doing there!!!

  2. It’ll feel great! Slow at first, but a lot more like normal life. When you only have a short time, it is more intense and you have to pack as much as you can into each day. When you have more time…it might feel like nothing is happening, but you get to feel more settled and invest in things more.

  3. You ‘ll make it!! We are gone for two months, but look forward to reconnecting.
