Hello and good morning from Medan, Sumatera, Indonesia! We arrived safely on our flight from Jakarta yesterday evening. We may not look terribly excited in the photo but we are – just weary as well! The sig behind us, as we exit the airport terminal in Medan, means Welcome (at least we think it does!)
Our first priority will be to start learning the language. We’re nervous but mostly excited to get started on this. Your prayers for our clarity of mind and the receptivity of our brains are greatly appreciated as we give thanks together to God who has created this partnership between us and delivered us to where we trust He wants us!
We’ll write more soon and post more pictures later today. We have a lot to do in terms of getting to know the area around our apartment – where is the grocery store, the ATM, a place to buy school supplies – that sort of thing.
