Romans 1:20

"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse."

Welcome Ryan and Elna!

Another South African couple arrives in LA for Seminary! I was so excited that they were coming out, both for Andrew, who knew them from Grace Fellowship, and for myself because I hopefully gain a new friend! Ryan was Joel James' secretary before he came out, and Elna is a GP. Their little daughter Calista is 19 months and a real cutie!!!

Since we were up in Frazier Park we drove down to help prepare things for their arrival!

They seemed to have found an apartment in Granada Hills, so we went over there early to get everything organised. When we got there we spoke to the lovely Manager, but their apartment was not ready for them. They were going to let them use a different empty apartment in the mean time, but there was still NOTHING in there! Not even a fridge! And with a little one it is far from ideal. We sat in our car, camping out and waited for them to arrive. HOURS later the poor procession arrived after crawling through traffic from LAX. We had a quick conference in the parking lot where we recommended they use our apartment until theirs opens. This was great too because we wouldn't be home for the first few days and they could get Calista settled down again. We all then hit the road again and sat in traffic for AGES again between Granada Hills and Newhall! We finally got to our apartment, offloaded everything and then got some pizza in our tummies!

Andrew and I stayed until about 9 giving them all the info they needed to start setting up, and they were talking of maybe looking for an apartment up here in Newhall instead! That would mean we would be able to see them more often and help them with getting set up! For the next few days we will be driving down from Frazier Park to help them get set up here.

Welcome Mitchell Family!
