All is right with the world again...

At least from Milka's perspective.
All she cares about is reclaiming her spot on our comfy chair...
she doesn't have to un-pack all of the suitcases, clean up all of the dust and dirt that has accumulated over the last six months or have to sort through piles and piles of clothes that no longer fit the kiddos. :)

Overall, we are settling in just fine. Abby and Levi were pretty anxious about starting school again and having to speak only German~ but they just returned home and had a GREAT day!  Both of them have very sweet and compassionate teachers.  Luke will have some testing tomorrow, but will also start school this week.

Worship also went well last night...and we are so thankful to come back to a bigger team and congregation!  Lindsay "held down the fort" amazingly well and we are so grateful for all of her hard work while we were in the States.

The Beilman's are moved into their apartment and Jen started German classes today.  Dan will start intensive German in February.

Our newest teammate, Sonja, left for Colorado today (for training) and will hopefully arrive here mid-February.

We really are so appreciative of your prayers and kind words over these last few days. God has been answering beyond our expectations!

Glad to see that Milka was NOT traumatized by the gekos! I miss you BUT am happy that you are where God wants your family to be.

Mom-
I am a little surprised that she found "her spot" again so quickly. She cracks me up!
