Friends & Family,
I write this from the living room of our new apartment in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. We both walked in and felt such a whirlwind of emotions. It will take time to adjust to the reality of living here long-term, but I know God will meet us where we are at. In fact, I know that to be true.
Our flight was quick - only a 3hr lay over in Seattle and then a 12hr flight to Incheon, South Korea followed by another 5hr flight into Phnom Penh. Our wonderful friends, Eric and Ginny Hanson greeted us along with Emily from New York. It's so good to see familiar faces when embarking on such an unfamiliar journey.
Anyways, I should get some sleep...it's 1:15am and I'm wide awake (thanks, jet lag). Here are a few snaps from our apartment in the RAW. We haven't take showers yet and our stuff is everywhere. Ha! Noelle will probably be dreaming of ways she can decorate. It will be so much fun.
Also, attached is our newsletter in case you didn't get a chance to read it. Click HERE to read it.
Love you all, Jacob
