Well it's Saturday morning and we slept in. It felt wonderful. I think at some point we even had some children laying on us but they eventually gave up and moved on to cartoons. (We get 2 cartoon channels in English which has been pretty nice.)
Last night we had Sara and Anna come over for dinner. They arrived this week from the US. They will live here for about 3 months before moving on to their cities and are with IMB as well. It was really good to hang out with them again and catch up.
The boys talked ninety to nothing all night. When they have an audience of English speakers they rarely hurt for words! :) Sara and Anna (or Anna Caye as she's known back home) have even offered to watch the boys one night so Mike and I can go out.. Mike and I will get a DATE!!!
Tomorrow we are gonna visit a couple of different churches in different neighborhoods and practice some more of our seriously lacking language skills! ;) The boys start school Monday so please pray pray pray!!! We are hoping it all goes well and that they melt into everything very smoothly. Pray for them each to make friends easily even through the language barriers. Pray that they will start to feel more at ease here in a country that is so far away from all they know. They have amazed us so far. (JohnMark especially...he gets 6-7 calls a day from kids asking to play.)
Life gets easier down here for us each and every day. We are beginning to relax and just be more at ease with the simple things that life hands us. We do know that Satan is still prowling around though and would love to trip things up for us. Sometimes it seems he rears his ugly head right when things are going perfect. So please continue to pray against this! Pray that we'll continue to adjust with ease and pray for family missing us back home.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
