Well we arrived back from NZ with our luggage safe & sound 3 weeks ago and it almost seems like we never even went there!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time there catching up with friends and family. It was with mixed emotions that we headed back to
We began school again the next day and although it was a shock to the system it was good to get back into a work routine again.
We have contracts up until Sept 2010 but have asked that next year we only take one position/class and share the job. This proposal doesn’t seem too popular at the moment, but we are just praying about this as it would give us more time down at our house and being involved with people there.
The economic crisis has hit people in
3 days after arriving back we signed up a new apartment which is about 10 mins walk from our school. In the last few months rent prices in
But it is good to see our project to come to some sort of completion…and we are very thankful to God for this beautiful place to relax in & entertain people. It’s a never ending job owning property, but we can now comfortably (very) live there.
We are in the process of applying for a visa for our friend
We are making inquires and would like to be involved in some sort of way with street kids/orphanage work here in
We are unsure as we look into the hazy distance, but just enjoying what life throws us at the moment.
While in NZ we had tests done regarding having children, and are still trying to figure out the best path for us to take. We are not 100% sure what needs to happen, but this may result in us coming back to NZ for medical help within the next 12-18 months.
Our half-term ends next week, so we are taking a short break to
Thanks for your friendship & prayers
Until next time
Ruth & Jon
