Getting adjusted.

We are settling in nicely here in our new home. :)  The towns here in Greenland are similar in some ways, and can be totally different in others. One of the biggies for us is we do a whole lot more walking here in Ilulissat than we did in Sisimiut. We live a mile from church and the big grocery store. Thankfully we do have some smaller stores around us that we can run (walk) to if we need something we forgot.

Our new home!

I enjoy our walks to church, yes, they are cold, but it insures you are wide awake by the time we get there. :)

I have enjoyed getting to talk to Carole! It has been nice to have another lady to talk to.What makes it even better is that she understands what we got through on a daily basis.  I look forward to getting to know her better. :)

A dog sledge team. We see several of these each day! Very neat. :)

Thank you to all those who have prayed for us as we did our move. We have seen the Lord provide when we couldn't see any other way the needs would be met.

Our first Thanksgiving in Ilulissat

Loading up the plates. :)

Today we had a fabulous Thanksgiving meal at the Shulls. Carole out did herself!  We had a great time of fellowship. Most of the pictures below were taken by Anna. :)   I think she did a great job!

What I am Thankful for!

I have so many things to be thankful for. The Lord has blessed me in my life with so many things. Here are just a few things that I am truly thankful for, they don't even begin to scratch the surface of what I am thankful for!
My family! I have a wonderful husband of almost 10 years and three beautiful children.
My Mom, Dad and Brother! I miss them terribly, and can't wait to see them again on furlough. 

My Sister-in-law, Amanda AKA Mena.  She has been one of our biggest blessings since arriving here in Greenland. We often refer to her as our lifeline to the States.
A place to serve and people to serve with!

In Ilulissat

It is hard to believe we have been here in Ilulissat for a week now! The time has flown by. Hopefully by next week our container will be here and we can get settled in all the way.  It has been a blessing to have another family to fellowship with!

Last week was our first week to get to work in the church. Marty is teaching a Sunday school for the English speaking kids. Basically right now it's just the Missionary kids. But it was fun! Here are a few pictures of the little class.

Takuss Sisimiut!

Takuss is a Greenlandic word meaning I will see you latter!

Tomorrow at 2:15 Greenland time we fly to Ilulissat to start a new phase of our ministry. We are really excited and nervous at the same time. We are excited to have a church, and people to serve in and with. We are nervous because we really desire to be a blessing to the Shulls and to the church in Ilulissat!  Our prayer is that the Lord will use us in any way we can be used. This has been a long journey for us and we are looking forward to seeing what The Lord has in store! 

We are sad to be leaving Sisimiut and the people we have been able to met and befriend. Thankfully, The Lord knows best! 

Please pray as we fly tomorrow and as we get settled into our new home!
