Well, surprisingly, we haven't had too much shock. We took the first week to try and adjust and rest a bit, do some shopping and settling, my sister visited, and we ate some great food. Other than adjusting to the time, it was a nice week.
In most ways, Vienna is our home now. It's all our kids really know, so they are really freaked out by wearing their shoes in homes and riding in cars everywhere, and they find big yellow school buses and lines of semis strange. All of this has been mostly expected though.
One surprise has been how encouraged we have been by the times we've spent with ministry partners. We have really wanted to be a blessing and encouragement to others, but we have walked away from each gathering feeling so abundantly loved and blessed. On top of that, our kids have really enjoyed getting to know these special people, and they're regularly asking when we get to go visit more people! Thank you, God, for this gift.
