We apologize that it has been a while since we last posted. It has been a busy time. A few highlights that have really encouraged us.
1. We moved to our permanent home or perhaps I should say we are moving into our new home. Boxes are still being unboxed and items are still finding their new home but all in all we are settled in. A really great God moment came with our container that was being shipped out of Norfolk, VA. The ship was originally leaving on May 17, we knew it would take about 10 days to arrive in Reykjavik and then a while to clear customs. We had to be out of the furnished home on June 10, so we felt good about the time. The day before we loaded the container in Stafford, VA we were told the ship would not leave until May 24. We knew this could cut things close with our transition, but there was nothing we could do except was is most important, pray and trust that God will work everything out. It turned out that our ship left Norfolk on May 21, arrived Saturday June 2 and was through customs and at our house on June 7. Those three days gave us just the time we needed to unload and set up the basics of home. It really is amazing to see God at work in all the details.
2. This past Sunday God really moved in our time of worship. There were 37 of us who had gathered together and it was refreshing to hear others talk about the way God was working. Please continue to pray for the church at large in Iceland but also for Emmanuel Baptist Church.
We are thankful to be in such a great seeing and we believe that God is doing something amazing in the northernmost capital of the world!
Today we start moving from Kelduland 17 to Safamýri 23. The ship containing our container left Norfolk, VA on the 21 and arrives in Iceland today. We are now praying for a speedy process through customs and a delivery sometime late in the week. If all goes well we should be completely moved by June 10.
