We lived. We were flooded. We evacuated. We moved several times. We moved furniture. LOTS of furniture. We washed. We scrubbed. We immersed our hands in bleach to rid the mold. We now live in two houses in Niamey. (Did I mention that we cried a few times in between each of those things?)
Welcome to the new dorm!
Here are some pictures to help you SEE what has been going on this past month! Enjoy!
Here are the two houses — the girls live in the white one and the boys in the pink one.
Hadiza is our full time cook – she has been keeping us healthy through all of the hard work of settling in.
We had to bring the toilet seats from the old dorm since EVERY SINGLE toilet seat in the new houses was broken or cracked. How random!? (Note to self: remind Tim and Janice to bring the toilet seats back next summer…)
I’ll finish with this photo of our white board schedule for our first full weekend in the new dorm…needless to say we were going a thousand directions!
We may not know “what in the world we are doing” at any given point in the day, but we believe we are having fun together and learning a lot about following God and honoring one another as a dorm family.
Stay tuned for some pictures of our upcoming NUTS softball tournament — the dorm team is named Sahel Refugees! Woohoooo!!!!
