This morning we got up early about 5:30 a.m. here (8:30 p.m. CO time), headed to the 24 hour coffee shop, and skyped with our boys back home. Then we came back to the apt and packed everything back up so we would be ready when they came to pick us up to take us to our new apt. Here is a pic of near where our new place will be. The big yellow part is the grocery store.

Here’s some pics of the place we’ve been staying. It is pretty decent. There’s a TV and Mark finally figured out how to change it over to English so that is nice. The place is clean and quiet. The elevator to get up here is interesting, but it works and is better than walking up 8 flights of stairs. It has given us a few laughs!

And some more pics of the city surrounding that apt building. Samuel, you were wanting to see what it’s like around here, so here you go.

a different apt building

Down on the street below - notice how the cars park on the sidewalk by the building and sticking out in the street. And that is a busy street, let me tell you! They do things way different than we're used to around here! :)

This afternoon we went back to the SDA and got our paperwork to go to the orphanage. YAY!!!!! We are getting so close to seeing the girls! I am sure it is going to be an emotional day for us! We are leaving about 8:30 am tomorrow to head over there!

Psalm 139:13-16

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
