We Made It!

We arrived here in Seattle three days ago on Tuesday morning after spending five days in the San Fransisco Bay Area with friends and family. It definitely didn't seem like long enough but we'll be out there again in May for a very dear friend's wedding!!! We were pretty checked out all day Tuesday due to the lack of sleep and travel, but all day Wednesday and yesterday we have been dedicated to apartment hunting in Pioneer Square. We love this area. It is the historical district with many buildings dating back to the early 1900's. It's just a stone's throw from the downtown core and Chinatown/International District, and despite its recent influx of young, hip folk (like ourselves ;-) it still remains a hub for the homeless. We are pumped about the potential that we have to engage this neighborhood and have already begun a friendship with a local park concierge.

Even in this short time, we've been able to look at seven different apartments! So we ask that you'd continue to pray with us because we put in an application for a six month lease at a place in the Pioneer Square area! God totally provided for us because two fantastic units opened up in this building that were difficult to choose between. We totally hit it off with the manager, she was extremely helpful and patient with us in the process. We should know by Monday if everything's good and we can put a deposit on it so we'll be sure to update you here on the blog. Woohoo! Also please be praying because Giulian has two interviews lined up, and we're planning to submit many more applications this coming week. God is so faithful to us even when we are disobedient to Him at times. "Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever." (Psalm 136:1)

Love and gratitude in Christ,
