First impressions: Two of our male DTS staff were waiting for us at the airport wearing long robes..just to weird us out. (LOL..it didn't work!) South Africans drive on the "wrong" side of the road! So they drove us about 40 minutes through the hills of Cape Town to the house where we will call home for the next 3 months. We are sleeping in a really nice house and they gave Uriah and I the master suite with walk-in closet and bathroom because we're the only married couple staying at this house. We felt guilty because upstairs 7 girls share one bathroom. Yay for being married!! Haha.
Everyone in the school is friendly and sweet! The staff, the students...we're getting to know them quickly because we are living so close, but so far we all get along great! We are representing something like 10 nations here. Jeff Pratt is our teacher this week for our first week of lecture and he has been speaking about God's love and the Father's heart..it has been good. Deep already! We find out outreach location options tomorrow.
For a bit of sad news, Uriah's great-grandfather passed last night. Papa was 94 and he was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago. It was hard to hear the news, but knowing he was in a lot of pain makes it a little easier at first to let him go. Please be praying for us, though, (as well as the rest of the family back home) as we work through all that.
We hope you all are doing well! We're really limited on wifi and data while we're here, so we will probably be updating once every couple weeks or so. Subscribe to us if you haven't to receive notifications when we post. Email us anytime and we'll do our best to respond! Much love, the Stepps
