Our Home

Well, maybe this is a little late in coming, but I thought I'd show you some pics of where we are living. From the time we arrived until the end of October we are living in one of the guest houses on the Baptist Mission Guesthouse compound. In a past post I showed you pictures of the playground here, but this time I want to show you some pics of our house.

This is outside of our house. Camryn is standing in front of our door and the door on the left goes into a separate guest house.

This is our living room. There's plenty of space for the girls to play. You can see our desk/office area in the back left corner of the room. The hallway you see next to the girls actually leads to two bedrooms and a bathroom that we don't use except to store some things.

This is our dining room table/homeschool work area. We usually eat dinner here because it's 10 degrees cooler than the kitchen. The doorway you see leads to our 2 bedrooms and bathroom.

This is ours and Lauren's bedroom.

However, this is usually where Lauren falls asleep - on the comfortable tile floor!

This is Camryn's and Jordan's bedroom.

This is the bathroom. Thankfully there's a 'normal' toilet in it! The girls were sad not to have a bathtub, but they are getting used to showers. Lauren hated them at first, but now we can't get her to come out!

This is the kitchen table where we usually eat breakfast and lunch.

This is the rest of the kitchen.

This is looking right outside our front door. You can see how close the playground is and you can see our Toyota Landcruiser. Jody's so glad not to have a minivan anymore! There was a tree in that circle of plants, but it blew over in one of the storms. It fell on the building, but it was not a big enough tree to damage anything.

As you can see we've got a great place to stay here! Thank you so much to all those who support us through giving to your church and the Lottie Moon Christmas offering. We are very blessed with our living conditions and are grateful for this home.

  1. Praying for you guys and the transition to Niger. I am married to Blake, who just got back from a mission trip to see Mark and Parker...and I think he helped you guys move:))) Will definitely have to keep in contact with your blog to know how to pray for the people of Boubon!
