Since our 4th of July adventures there hasn't been much to post, but here is a collection of the things that have been keeping us busy lately. Last week we spent a few days recovering from our adventures (a testament to how out of shape we are). Sunday we visited the 3rd Evangelical Free church on our list, and we really liked it. Lucas met with the president of Gordon Conwell (who is also EV Free) to discuss becoming a pastor in that denomination and finding a church. He suggested that we attend an EV Free church during our time here. This is nice because it narrows our search, but we really liked 2 out of the 3 and now we're trying to figure out what will be the deciding factors. Sunday evening we had dinner with our neighbors, the Moodys. We have been so blessed to have such amazing neighbors, and we had a wonderful time. The highlights of the evening were Lucas eating meatloaf, hearing Josh's great stories (he was a police officer in Baltimore; it was better than watching COPS!) and learning speed Scrabble (even though Kim Moody beat Lucas!). Lucas is finishing up his last week of Hebrew (he has a final this Friday and I'm sure he would appreciate your prayers), but he found some time to play disc golf with our neighbor Seth (from the other side of us). Although, it sounded like they spent a lot more time looking in the woods for the discs than actually playing, and I ended up having to do a tick check. Last night we split up, girls in one apartment watching Big Brother and guys in our apartment watching the All-Star game. It was a nice time to hang out with friends of our respective genders - girl talk for me and male bonding for him. It seems that all of your prayers have helped as I (Kim) have a job interview tomorrow. It is for a receptionist position at a chiropracter's office, and I'm so excited. We have more adventures ahead as we are leaving to spend a long weekend in Maine visiting my cousin and camping at Acadia National Park, so you all can look forward to some exciting posts in the future!
