We're Here!

Isabel slept well on our TAP Air Portugal flight :)
Praise the Lord we have arrived!  The girls did wonderfully on the plane, and we are thankful that we can begin our new life here.

As you might expect, the first few days have been a bit of whirlwind.  Almost directly off the plane Caryne, Pastor Figueira, and his wife Ana, headed to IKEA to set our new home up with some essentials. We are so blessed that we are able to move into an apartment that has all we need!  We are so undeserving of what the Lord gives us! I then had the privilege of playing soccer with the men of the church on Saturday night.  We had a great time of fellowship, and I will look forward to that time every week.

We then attended our first Sunday service at our new church.  We were welcomed warmly, and we are so appreciative of the love the congregation has already shown us.

Today we headed out to receive the proper identification numbers to be able to open up a bank account here.  Praise the Lord the process went abnormally well!

Our apartment is slowly taking shape!
The girls are all doing fine.  Please pray for calmness and patience, however, as this transition has been somewhat unsettling for them.  It has become very clear that this would be the time for discouragement to creep in.  Please pray that we would only rely on God for each step, for without Him we are truly lost!

Thank you for your love and prayer!
