Our New House--Before the work is finished!

This will be the boys bedroom-needs a new paint color!
This will be my new fridge! I get to have a freezer in the house!
The kitchen--sorry the picture is so fuzzy.
This is the staircase--Definitely needs a new coat of paint.
The breakfast room.
This will be the dining room.
This is the main bedroom with built in wardrobes.
This is how the garden looked before work started.
This is the living room before the door was re-fitted.
Fireplace in the living room.

Here are some pictures of our new house. We will be able to start painting on Wednesday after the kids start school. We are getting excited about the move. We should be finished moving in by the 15th September in time to scrub down the old house before we turn in the keys on the 18th. I will post more pictures next week.

Monday is Bank Holiday and we are driving up to Colwyn Bay for the camp reunion. We are looking forward to seeing friends and hearing how all the youth are doing. Ronnie will be speaking again to the junior campers. We are excited about the day away.

Last week, we took a few days off to relax before the move. We had a lovely time in South Wales with our long-time friends, the Liverick's. As always, they welcomed us with open arms and as part of their family. For over 10 years, they have been great friends. We were also able to have lunch with veteran missionaries, Ferrel and Barbara Kearney. Ever since we met them, they have been a great encouragement to us. The trip to Cardiff also allowed for a bit of shopping--for the new house--of course. We had a lovely day and even enjoyed a treat--MT. DEW!! We are so thankful for all the GREAT friends we have made on the field.

On a fun note, a Subway Sandwich shop opened in Merthyr. Now, only if we could get one in Newtown or Llandrindod Wells. Now, on big shopping days, we can have a Subway sandwich. Yippee!
Until next week--Goodbye!
