Thriving at thirteen!

It’s been a crazy week and a half so as a result this post is a week and half late being written!

Monday last week we celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary. We celebrated by having intimidating physical medicals as part of clearance to move to Addis Ababa.

The office where we had the medical was just a 5 minute walk from the flat we lived in the first two years we were married. So we took the opportunity to pop back and have a quick look. Our flat was those top 2 windows of the tall house, up 68 stairs!

It was a fly by visit, before walking down the south bank of the Thames for afternoon tea in ‘Canteen’ at the Royal Festival Hall.

It was a wonderful time to reflect on God’s goodness to us these past years. There have been extremely low and testing times over the years, but in his great mercy the Lord has grown us and changed us both. We can honestly say we love being married and supporting each other on this crazy journey.

This week last we have also completed the doctrinal questionnaire and a 3 hour psychological assessment. Just one more interview and then we will know if God willing Pete will be serving at the Ethiopian Graduate School of Theology.

Never thought I’d say that 13 years ago!
