October is the month of the purple Jacaranda trees here in Pretoria. Its beautiful…the streets are all lined with these unique trees! We honestly have not had much time to explore our new home we have been busy with meetings, getting a house and a car and getting the kids settled into school. But this sunday we went for a picnic with one of Scott’s team mates and his family to down town it was a nice and much-needed break. We have limited internet for now but once we are in our house come Dec. we will be in better communication with everyone. For now we are doing good, we have had bumps and difficult days but are feeling very grateful to be doing this job God has called us to. We are excited to get to work, and get to our life here. We wish you guys a happy October!
