More specific updates for those interested:
- We are happy. The training is great, we’re making lots of good friends, and the facility is perfect for what we’re doing, especially with lots of kids.
- Sam is doing really well. He has his own class, and they have real purposeful activities every day. (He also has his own cubby and a hook for his coat. For some reason I just think that’s great.)
- The one thing Sam is not doing well at is eating. Strange, I know. But please pray for him– he’s whining through every meal, pouring drinks out, the whole nine yards. We eat in big groups, which he’s having a tough time getting used to. So our biggest prayer request is honestly that he’ll have a better time at meals. (For obvious reasons, we’re more concerned with attitude than nutrition.)
- You can pray for us too. The sessions are really good, but emotionally taxing, because we’re talking about hard stuff. It is great to talk about what missionary life looks like with other people who are walking through it too. Please pray that we’ll embrace the hard stuff, open up with our new friends, and grow a lot in the process.
We’ll have more pictures soon. It started snowing tonight and isn’t supposed to stop until Saturday night!
