So, it is true. Dave and I are moving to England. We are relocating to the London area for his work with World Vision (Well, VisionFund - a branch of World Vision). It has been a long-time coming, something that we've been planning on since January. Things just have seemed to move slower than we would have liked. But its so neat to see God working through this whole process in His own time! We have wonderful renters who are living in our condo. We sold our little Honda Fit to my parents this last weekend so are down to one car for the next week. We were able to stay in the states long enough to visit family on both my side and Dave's side of the family. So, here's the nitty-gritty details:
We have plane tickets that have been bought for September 28th - a week from Tuesday. I will be almost 32 weeks pregnant. We have no home and no doctor for us waiting. My doctor warned us that I may not be allowed on the flight if I look "too" pregnant. So pray that we will allowed to travel and that I will be comfortable on the 10 hour flight.
Once we get there, Dave is taking some time off and we will be looking for a house in the Wimbledon/Raynes Park area. Pray for us as we try to find a place to call home. Housing is fairly expensive and most places are very small compared to what we're used to (think a 10ft by 7ft bedroom!)
We will be living in "temporary housing" for a few weeks until we find a place. This will probably be a hotel in the Wimbledon area.
Dave will be traveling to Azerbaijan October 4th. He will be there for just a few days, but I will be adjusting to life in a new city and all by myself. So... prayers for both of us during this time!
Okay... that's all I know now. I will be updating as I learn more and can share our exciting journey with you guys!
