Please pray for our trip, final packing, and the survival of my children during this process. They say moving is one of the top stresses in a person's life and I must stressfully agree! The family had burrowed in down here in the Dominican Republic for the long haul and the closets are revealing their desires to hide unwanted things. The maids around the apartment complex have been raiding our house on a daily basis looking for bargains for about the last two months. Finally, we have narrowed our items down to just the necessities: clothes, toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant and our ceiling fans. We have been camping in our apartment for the last week and my back is so ready for a real bed. Literally, we have been living without a refrigerator, washer, dryer, beds, couch, chairs and bedroom furniture. It’s been easier for the kids to keep their rooms cleans since we are piling the clothes on the floor. As you can tell, we are ready to live anywhere.
We hope to reflect more on our time in the DR in our next few blogs. Thanks for your prayers and encouraging words that you all send us through emails, cards, and Skype. We are so blessed to have you praying for us most of all.
P.S. Do not send mail until further notice. Thank you! :)
