We Moved, again!

Most of you know that we have moved, again, for the third time in less than two years.  It is a little hard to believe at times that we have only been living overseas for two years.  After all we have seen and experienced, it feels like we have been living overseas for at least 5 years, maybe more.  Haha.  It seems pretty surreal that we have actually moved to a new city to live here for the next year and a half.  We are living in the capital of our country.  It is a HUGE city of about 12 to 15 million.  This is also where we came when Elias was born.  We were here for three months and maybe that is why this all still seems very surreal and temporary.  I keep feeling like we are going to go back to our old city after a couple of months, but we will be here until we go back to the States for 6 months.  This is a huge adjustment for us.  We are having to learn to live in a very large city, take public transportation with two small kids, and have an urban, fast-paced lifestyle.  In January, Matt will start teaching English to a company here.  We are still trying to figure out our schedule, our lives, and how everything is going to fit together.  We will get there though.  We have been very encouraged since our relocation.  Being surrounded by people who are encouraging and spur you on is invaluable.  We stay very busy here, but I love the people we work with and what we are doing.  Father is teaching us a lot, and he is with us.  If there is one thing that we have learned since living overseas, it is that he is so faithful, and he will never leave us nor forsake us.  He is carrying us through this journey.
