Another quick update...

Looks like I might be able to update about once a month. We are adjusting well to most everything here. Right now, the power is out while I'm typing this, so it might take me a little while. We've been having seeming more power outages over the last week. It's usually not very long though (not like three days after we got here when the power and water were out for four or five days).
We had an interesting time adjusting when we first got here. Not only were we without power and water, but a week after we arrived Hannah and I came down with the measels. Then, as we were recovering, Victor got it for a week.
After we recovered, we settled down to adjusting to daily life. It wasn't very easy, but God's grace got us through those early days and we seem to be doing better now.
The "big thing" right now is the chicken pox. It's slowly moving through our two families. Right now, about half of the people have it, including Victor. Hannah and I haven't gotten it yet, but I'm assuming it's only a matter of time.
We have decided on a doctor and hospital here, and I've been going for pre-natal check-ups. It's a little different culture, but we're working through the differences:) My official due date is March 31st (about 6 weeks from now).
Hannah is doing well and growing up SO fast. She's walking and starting to try to talk. She seems much older than she is, and is always surprising us at how smart she is.
Victor is really doing well here and getting right into the ministry. So far, he's taught every Sunday since we got here, but I think tomorrow will be his first to miss because of the pox.
I'm going to try to post more later as well as try some pictures. We'll see though, because our connection here is REALLY slow. So please bear with me!

Hannah is so cute and looking so 'grown up' - what a dear little girl. I hope everyone gets well soon...I'm sorry to hear that y'all are having the chicken pox. We think of you often, and thank you for taking the time to post this when it isn't the easiest thing to do.

God Bless you!
