In the process of unloading all this stuff from 4 trucks into the yard, Ellie almost died. We couldn't find her anywhere until she started whimpering and we noticed a little tail sticking out from under the new couch. Apparently she slipped under there when we lifted it up to take off the plastic. Good thing it had some space underneath. Oops.
We are still down a bed (queens are virtually impossible to find), which we hope to have commissioned in Puerto Supe. Until then, we'll be sleeping on our mattress on a rug. The only new thing we have so far (wrapped in the photo) is a couch and two big square footrest things that go with it. Tim is out right now picking up a refrigerator, stove, boxes for the loads of non-furniture stuff we have bought, and three more rugs.
It's been a busy day but a good one. Our home is paramount in our eyes, both for our own sanity and for the kind of ministry God has put on our hearts, a ministry of hospitality and invitation. We're so happy with the things we were able to buy and really believe that they will be a blessing to us and to others. Today I feel deeply grateful for all the people sacrificing financially so that we can have these things and be here to use them. I hope you know how dear you are to our hearts.
