thoughts of a missionary on the island of Guam

i made it!

well friends, i've made it. i'm finally in Guam! thanks for all your prayers, encouragement, and support.

Guam is a lovely island, though i've yet to see much of it. the sky is so blue and full of big white fluffly (or fluppy, if you're my nephew) clouds that float incredibly low. i got a glimpse of the seas as Dad was giving me a brief tour around.

i've never seen car windows so tinted before. everyone looks shady, but Mom assured me that it's quite a necessity around here because the sun is so bright.


here's a look at the house that we currently live in (thanks to the Lord's provision). this house is made of cement and has metal shutters on the windows to help protect against storms and typhoons. also, underneath the awning area is a sink and sort of kitchen area. i guess it's common around here for family's to take some of their meals outside. pretty neat!

it's certainly a nice change from where my family was first living when they arrived, though they were thankful for that too (pictured below).










i look forward to giving you more of an update on all that we're doing soon!
until then :)
