Home Sweet Home

Well, we are now in our new house. We moved three kilometers across the city and up the mountain. I guess our landlord thought that North American renters had a lot of money, because when our lease expired he decided to increase our rent by about 40%, and after negotiating still went up almost 25%. It was way too much to pay for the concrete bomb shelter we were calling home.

So, we have moved to a beautiful new house (although right now none of the lights on the second floor work --just part of the whole living in the mission field thing). It is amazing how much better we feel when surrounded by warm colors and pretty plants. I am including a slide show below so you can see some of the shots.

The house is a three bedroom…so we have a boy’s room, girl’s room, and parent’s room..still cozy, but it has a great feel to it. We are at the right hand of the Christo—the statue of Christ that is bigger than the one in Rio, and on the upper incline of the mountain. We are probably at about 9,000 feet.

The house is only missing one thing…YOU! Visitors are welcome!

Looks sweet. Do you have to find a new market to shop in?
