Moved in!

So sorry for the long silence - for those of you wondering how our move went.
Well, it was definitely not easy and I am so glad it's over (asking God, as usual, if this could PLEASE be the last move!)
It wasn't necesserily stressful, just extremely exhausting: the amount of work it takes to move 7 people, plus a demanding, sick toddler, plus me not feeling well. Then, to top it off, my back started hurting really bad for the 2 main days of the move, so that I was lying on the floor most of the time, getting up every so often just to do the minimum - in much pain... no fun!

Thank you so very much if you have prayed, though, because in spite of all the difficulties, we could sense God's grace and got precious help of friends just at the right times!

I am still not feeling 100% and completely exhausted, since I haven't been sleeping well at night.
So, I'll keep this short.
We all LOVE the house and feel VERY blessed!!!

Jeremie took off this morning for his missions trip to Samoa. He got his finances together in the last minute. Even got a couple of gifts from complete strangers... an amazing GOD-story!

We'll have a visitor from Fiji for a week starting Saturday, so I'll try to get the house organized a bit more before then.

Oh, I almost forgot: the BIGGEST, BeStEsT NeWs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We received a letter saying that we got our PERMANENT RESIDENCY for NZ two days after we moved in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Catch up later... would appreciate your continued prayers for full restoration and good sleep at night!

Congrats on the res. and the funds, and the new house! Is the baby gaining weight? I think about him alot.
Get a cup of tea and sit in the sun when the baby naps. You sound like you need some Mommy breaks. :)
