I have been here 2 months! I feel like I have been gone forever. I miss everyone so much! And church. I miss Northridge so much! I am more used to being here, but I have decided that NY will always be “home”. At least for now. I love being with Liz. We are having a great time just doing life together. She is such a blessing to me. We are doing a Beth Moore bible study on James which has been both challenging and encouraging. It is with a group of girls from Liz’s church and it has been great to fellowship with them and get to know them. I have made a few friends both from church and work, so that is great! It’s not easier to be away from the friends that I love at home, but at least it’s allowing me to build some good relationships here as well.

We have found some coffee shops to hang out at. One guy makes fun of my “extra hot” latte every time…as if its odd to ask for extra hot. Silly. Fall is in full swing. It’s so windy here that the leaves blow all over. They do have the most beautiful sunrises here. Maybe we have them in NY, but I never had to get up so early there so I rarely saw a sunrise! Also it is so dusty. I don’t know if it’s from all the construction or what, but my car is always caked with dirt. Probably Kansas is just dirty. The cars even get dirtier when it rains. As if that makes sense. Today I washed and waxed it. We’ll see how long that lasts.

I still don’t have a permanent Starbucks. I am bouncing around between two stores currently. It has gotten very frustrating. They won’t let me have off for Thanksgiving and are being very sketchy about me being able to have Christmas off to come home. So I am just praying a lot about my job and for wisdom about that situation and for doors to open if I am supposed to work somewhere else. I have been applying for anything that seems interesting.

That’s about all that’s going on for now! Gungor liked my book review and I’m so excited for their concert on Saturday. Liz will be out-of-town visiting friends from NY who now live in the middle of nowhere somewhere far out in Kansas, so she’s missing the concert, but I am going with Laura and Sue. Should be a great night! Can’t wait! Let me know how you’re doing! I miss everyone at home 🙂 Thanks for your prayers. They are so encouraging to me.
