We get to unpack the bags




Well, we got an apartment this last week and the first thing that I (Matt) did was unpack all my stuff. It was fun to see what I had packed in some of those suitcases a month and a half ago. And honestly it was nice to not have to dig through a bag everyday for clothes, which we started doing back at the end of July when we moved out of our house. Thus I am truly praising God for this place.

Here are some pics and some of the cool and quirky aspects of our place. First, Sharon really wanted a nook where she could spend some quiet time. She got it. This great chair overlooks our busy downtown street from the third floor.

Next, I got a urinal. Yeah, thats right dog, my very own flip top, macho, pee place. I have to admit that I didn't pray for it, but yeah I'll take it.

Lastly, we got a lime kitchen, interesting yet cute.

Thanks so much for all your prayers. Really.

It's so funny...lets just say I'm glad you put pictures up bc its so easy for us back in the states to try to imagine what living conditions are like. This place seems to really fit the two of you. It's really inviting...

A urinal?? Unbelievable! If only things were so great in the States. You still need to put the lid down though man.
