My parents have been extremely helpful and wonderful hosts while we have been living with them. Ashtyn is now a little more adjusted and she has one more place to be moved to...our own apartment! We have been searching for an apartment and we pinned one down tonight. We were able to get the owner to come down on the price to fit our budget and we are very happy with it. We needed a place close to the center of Athens and not too far from my parents. We also bought a car which we are so thankful for finding. It is a 4 door Chevy Lacetti. It is much easier to get Ashtyn's carseat in a 4 door car! It took a while to get this finalized as we found out we needed to get all different kinds of paperwork done in order to purchase a car, rent an apartment etc. My parents were running us here and there to the offices and we have accomplished what we needed at this time.
The weather got cool overnight! Once the sun goes down we have to put on our sweaters. Greece usually stays hot until the end of September, so it's a little strange.
We attended the love meal at Hellenic Ministries last Monday. It was the first one, so there were not too many people there. Matt and one of the workers roamed the streets and invited people to come in for a hot meal. We served them and visited with the refugees and some of the workers we had not met from Hellenic Ministries.
We are slowly getting settled in and taking care of legal documents. Our container is scheduled to come in about 4 days. We have been told there are delays at the Athens port, so our container will probably not be here for a while. We are praying for it to arrive quickly as we have found an apartment now.
We think about our friends and family in the States daily. We love you and have enjoyed talking to you either on the phone or internet.
