Whew..

What a week and a half we have had!!  Daniel calculated today that we have driven over 30 hours, and i can honestly say i am glad we are settled in one place for 5 weeks.  Our short time here has been fruitful, and we have already begun to see God move in ways we could have never imagined.  We've had many occasions to just take in the vastness of who He is and what He is doing!  We've had to opportunity to visit many places that display His beautiful creation.  Upon arriving, we have spent MUCH of our time with friends...catching up, eating, celebrating birthdays, attending seminary classes, and just hanging out.  

On our trip we've experienced a few "firsts" already.  One in particular is what they call "Jeeping".  Now this is a new term for both daniel and myself, and i can honestly say we did not understand all that it encompasses until we experienced it this past saturday.  You see "jeeping" is when you pile into a jeep (there were 4 of us) and basically you put yourself in what i would call terrifying positions.  For example going up a rocky mountain where the road (or lack there of) is only wide enough for ONE vehicle.  We survived (although there we many times when i was not sure we would) and made it to almost 13,000 feet.  It was totally worth it...the beauty of it all was amazing!

Today was our first full day of class.  Our brains have already been challenged  (in a good way) and we look forward to much more!  

As we are sitting here waiting for our laundry to finish, i can't help but peer out the window.  My heart is warmed and i feel like a little kid again because IT'S SNOWING outside.  How much fun is that.  As a southern couple who NEVER see's snow...this is pretty sweet and a great treat!  Well i need to finish my homework and then head off to bed!  We miss our family & friends dearly, but are so encouraged!!

Thank you Lord for reminding us that you are in complete control...even though sometimes we feel longly and forget!!
