We finally arrived in Canada today! We’re at our home now in Surrey, BC just 15 minutes from work. Praise God we’re finally here! We’ll start work next week.
We’re still working out a couple details (like the internet connection), but everything is in place for us. We couldn’t have asked for a better situation…and nicer people we’re staying with. We’re renting out the basement apartment from this great Christian family.
We also got our 89 Honda Accord this morning. It reminds me of the car my dad had growing up. We have a friend who’s father is a pastor in the Seattle area. A couple weeks ago we contacted him, he put an announcement in the church bulletin, and someone from the church donated this car to the church so that we could use it!
God has provided so much for us.
So we drove through Seattle and got up near the U Dub (did I write that correctly?) where we ate at a New York bagel place. Yeah, yeah, I know. Save it. It was late and we were starving…and they didn’t have a long line. Then got some Seattle’s Best coffee and made the beautiful drive on up to Canada…and we had no problems crossing the border or any other trouble for that matter (just some traffic in Seattle).
It’s been a good day.
Now we’re going to spend the weekend settling in and figuring out where everything is around here. And hopefully sleep late. We’re very tired.
