Well, it’s been awhile since we last wrote a blog post. Not sure where the time goes to, but it sure flies by fast! Hard to believe April is almost coming to an end and the start of summer is right around the corner. We’ve asked people before what they most enjoy reading on our blog and by far most people answered they enjoy reading about our daily life and what our days typically look like. Oh, and if you are wondering about the title of this blog post, Wen Zhou St. is the name of our street 🙂
Well, let me try and give you a picture. Right now there are 7 people living in our apartment. Besides us, there are our housemates and their almost 4-month old little girl, and two brothers of a friend, who, for most of the month of April, are sleeping on our sofas as they are here shooting a documentary film. 7 people in a not very large space makes for a lot of….fun. Yes, it is great living in community with brothers and sisters and trying to live out what Acts 2 talks about when it says, “All the believers were together and had everything in common”.
Besides this we are still plugging our way through Mandarin Chinese language classes. Each day we sit for 3 hours in a classroom trying to grasp the funny, but more and more familiar, sounds our teacher makes. Also sitting in our class are a French guy, a British guy, and a fellow American, all, who for various reasons are studying this fascniating language as well.
Mornings find us either studying, meeting with people for discipleship or coffee chats, or serving at the local orphanage. Evenings take us from house cell groups to classes at church to our weekly date night.
That in a nutshell is our life. We wouldn’t trade it for anything- we are truly blessed.
