At last....we have multiple wonderful things to share! What a joyful 3 days or so it's been!
On Friday afternoon on my way to apply with another temp agency I received a call from one of the ladies who had interviewed me. She offered me the job I had interviewed for that morning, the job I wanted! I was so excited and thrilled that I actually got the job and could stop looking for another one :) We agreed I'd start next Monday the 5th. I will work 5 days a week for about 3 and a half hours a day. I will probably try to work in the mornings, although, it sounds like they are pretty flexible with when I am actually in the office.
Ever since we rented the car a few weekends ago we have been going round and round about whether or not to get a car. We finally decided we'd go ahead and look for a cheap one (cars seem to be cheaper here for some reason). Someone we had met a couple times told us about a man in their church who was a used car dealer. So we went to visit him on Saturday and bought a really cheap Ford Escort. The man actually gave the car to us for the same price he paid for it! He was a very godly man and we enjoyed more fellowship than car buying. Mark hopes to pick the car up tomorrow if we can get insurance on it today.
Our last news worthy of screaming from the rooftops is that WE HAVE A LANDLINE!!! I nearly called my parents in the States at 7am this morning our time, but I'm sure they are glad I didn't because that would have been 2am their time! I still can't figure out why one lady was able to get us a line in 2 working days (not including the weekend) when we tried for over 6 weeks. In any case, praise the Lord for this!!
"Every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father" (James 1:17) has been running through my mind since yesterday. All of these gifts have been so good to receive and we want to praise God for giving them to us!
