House Hunting in Birmingham 20th August, 2013Posted by Scotty in Life.
Forgive me for the serious lack of blogging over the past months. It’s been a very busy time between the reading and assignments for my degree, the fundraising, and preparing to move. Now that things are settling again, I’m looking forward to diving back into the blogging world to share all the things God’s been showing me.
We live in Birmingham (England)!?!?!
On Thursday 8th we loaded up a van.
On Friday 9th I drove it to Birmingham (5hrs), unloaded it, and drove back to Glasgow to spend our last night there.
On Saturday 10th we cleaned the flat and moved out.
We spent a couple of days with my parents, then
On Tuesday 13th, we moved to Birmingham!
Today is a week since we arrived in Brum. We are staying with a wonderful couple, Tom & Judi, who offered to house us while we search for a place of our own. They have been outstanding hosts!
We’ve spent the week recovering from the move, viewing houses, meeting our team, and familiarising ourselves with our new stomping ground. We have a BBQ tomorrow evening where we’ll meet the rest of the people who serve the Birmingham area with The Navigators, and then this coming weekend is a conference where we’ll meet the rest of the staff from around the UK.
We have a lot of work to do in the coming weeks as we continue to house hunt, fundraise, plan curriculum for the coming year, spent time with the team, as well as familiarising ourselves with the area.
We’d appreciate your prayers as we look for a house. At the moment we have to choose between space and location. We’re asking God to make a place available that has both!
We’re excited to be here, and ready to be put to use.
We are exactly where He wants us and excited to share the things He’s been teaching us.
