Crazy couple of months! We have been in Lima, and God has been so faithful to provide us with work, some friends, and a time of rest together.
Bryan has been working from our apartment teaching English online. It is an American based company that teaches students all over the world. It is a really cool program! And we really feel like God just dropped it in our lap. Our internet is not fast enough to do this in Maldonado, but it has been a perfect way to pay for our time here in Lima. God is so faithful!
We're still in the waiting process for Eva - I'm now 40 weeks and 2 days! But waiting has become a lot easier since last Monday when my mom and sister-in-law got here. It has been nice to explore the city with them and just enjoy some time together. My dad and brother get here tomorrow and Bryan's parents will be here in a little less than 2 weeks. We are blessed that so many of our family members are getting to come visit us while we're one plane ride closer to the U.S. than normal.
One thing we've done since our visitors have arrived is take pictures. I know normally people take maternity pics when they are 6 to 7 months while their bump is still cute and not enormous. BUT..... oh well. Sarah was really excited about doing these for us, and I think they turned out really well. I'm so thankful for such a talented sister-in-law! Here is the link to see them:

We've gotten to be part of a really neat church in our time here, and we've met several missionaries and been encouraged by what God is doing among them. Thank you so much for your prayers during this time. Now we just need everybody to collectively pray for Eva to get tired of being in my belly and come out on her own pretty soon. When that happens, another blog post will go up with some pictures!
