arrival en Nashvillio

We are safely (well, relatively safely) ensconced in our apartment in Nashville... we arrived last night - took us 9 or 10 hours, and that was even stopping a couple of times to eat and play on the McDonald's playlands... the speed limit may or may not have been exceeded.

We have a cute little apartment here in a dangerous looking neighborhood. I don't think it is. It just looks a little dicey. This little complex is owned by the ministry we're working with. It's furnished in late 80's-early 90's American. With a new stove... nice. The apartment has wood floors and it's definitely old. Toby can roll a truck and it rolls down to the corner. But most of it has been remodeled and it's good. Richy is gone, left this morning to go work a booth at the Gospel Music Awards. HA! We're working with the Thunder School.

So today I am getting settled in the apartment here and determining what we need to move in... looks like they will be providing all of our food from their food pantry... I'm supposed to go down there later and "shop". That's your update for today, folks.

  16. After the house is cleaned totally

    Maybe I will have time to put the rest of the UGANDA pics on the
    "Viking goes to AFRICA" blog.

  17. I am HOME during AI and so I actually pushed the little red button I know it is recording I can continue to live my life and watch it later.

    God is so awesome.

    HE put this desire in me and He knows I want to obey HIM and HE is opening doors for me left and right.

    What an awesome Provider...

    My God what a wonderful LORD!

    He is amazing.!!!

  18. Eva- that's funny about the mower. If it does smell of gasonline, I suggest buying some heavy duty clear tarp plastic from Home Depot and wrapping it several times, and then duct taping all the opening. That should keep the smell trapped so you won't get high on fumes while you drive and it won't stain the smell in your auto.

  19. Thanks Josharooni!

  20. The Black Girl was the BEST tonight in my oppinion.......

    in case anyone cares what I think...or thought.....or thunk....!

  21. i agree.

    syesha was the best.

    i have a feeling carly was great, but i couldn't get past the song she was singing.

    david archuleta was pretty awesome too.
