We made it to our bush location! In the picture above you can see a few houses with silver tin roofs–those are the missionary houses. We are living in the one farthest to the right. To the left of the last silver-roofed house on the left you can see a small lighter green patch inside the grassy area (if you look very closely) which is the helicopter pad we landed on. Everyone enjoyed our first helicopter ride. The girls particularly enjoyed talking on the headsets.

We arrived in the morning after our 6am take-off and a 45 minute ride. We spent much of the day with our host family, the Husas. Belle and Lucy have quickly made friends with their four and six year old daughters.

In the afternoon we survived our first earth quake. (Not joking.) Geoff (Husa) said it was the strongest they’ve ever had here. The house shook knocking pictures from the wall and opening desk drawers, but it’s still standing. I think only the adults were worried–Lucy was just upset to be awoken from her nap. Hopefully that will be our only one of those.

    I know y’all may not be checking this now, but I was wondering if it was still ok to send mail to the PO box address. Obviously, your Christmas card will be late 🙂

  2. Earthquake!!! Oh my goodness, we are praying for y’all.

  3. Glad you made it safely! Praying for you and can’t wait to hear more about your time with the Husas and the others in Mibu.

    Glad that you got there safely! And that everyone enjoyed the helicopter ride, how fun:). Praying for your time with the Husas in Mibu.
