Well, we leave for Lima in less than a week (YIKES). I can hardly believe it. We have been waiting for this for more than 3 years, yet it seems like it is coming so fast. As I pack and get ready to move, the thought has run through my head that things will be much calmer and easier once we are done with this part of the process. Then it always occurs to me that it will not be easier, just different once we arrive. We will be in a new culture with four young kids learning a new language. In fact, it may be harder. We have been told that missionaries function at a higher level of stress, and I can see why. Anyway, we have an apartment in Lima. Yeah!!!! We will be able to settle in right away. Here are some pics of our new crib.
