What is going on?

So, I figured I should start by letting everyone know what is up.

In my last post I told you that we were moving forward with a house and that my husband had found a job. After months of waiting to go forward with our lifes, the wait was over.

Of course, it is not that we stop living, but when you live at your in laws house (Praising God for their help), your husband doesn´t have a job, and you still don´t know exactly the reason why you are back where you started (for those that don´t know, we had been missionaries in Spain - my dear home country- for 3 years), you are ready to go somewhere, to feel "normal".

We got the house, we have been here 7 months and although in the beginning I got lots done in the form of painting, decorating..... we got things to do to finish it ;). It is a new home, so there are not renovations that needed to go on, other than the adding of the fence in the back yard, but there are things that need to go on at a house to feel like home. Still, this is home, and I love it. It is funny though because after moving so much in the last years, it sometimes feels like "so... where next?". Not that I am looking forward to another move, don´t take me wrong ;).

My husband loves his job, and it has been such a blessing. Still, although we are not in the ministry full time, it feels sometimes like the job just pays the bill, we are so busy at church praise the Lord.

My husband is helping with the mission board at our home church, teaching/directing the Spanish Bible Seminary at our church (20+ students), at whatever else needs to be done. I am teaching Sunday School (love my 3 years old), teaching Spanish at our christian school (high schoolers... you got to love them ;)), and acting as my husband secretary for the Bible Seminary. Things are busy, but they are great. We knew God was bringing us back from te field, but we knew He didn´t bring us back just to warm up a pew at church. It is such a joy to serve God. We are open to go through any doors God would open.

The girls are great. They love school, they love piano, they love church, they love their friends. I praise God for my girls. They make things so much easier.

So, now that you are caught up :) .... Did I forget anything? Feel free to ask me anything, I would love to answer any questions you may have. Love being back. Thanks for those that left me a comment. It was encouraging to feel missed, it gave me the extra push I needed to get back.

Through the week I am going to try to visit everyone. Hope to "see" you back.

I have miss all of you.

So glad to get this update Pilar! I have often wondered what opened up for you, and what doors you all went through. Good to know you are flourishing where you have been planted.

It's great to "see" you again! I can imagine that it is such an adjustment after being in missions. Praying God continues to help you adjust!
