Hey! It’s me again! Livi! I am writing this blog post from our balcony. Our balcony in CAMBODIA!!! I still can’t believe we are actually here. It seems like we were praying forever and ever, and ever. I always hoped this day would come. I never knew it actually would I just thought it might. Now that it is here we just can’t believe it. Every once in awhile one of us has to say, “We LIVE in CAMBODIA,” as we walk down the street, or as we slowly make way through the closest market. We have just been living life day by day, in CAMBODIA. I don’t know if that word will ever be uncapitalized in this post. I’m not yet quite used to it. I want to be used to it. It just seems too exciting and exhilarating to not just push caps lock while typing it. CAMBODIA. See, it’s so fun.
Anyway, we have been missing everybody a TON! Our Grandmas, our Grandpas, our Aunts and Uncles, and Cousins, and Friends, and everyone in between. And we have been dying for some friends and family to sign up on our list of ‘visitors’ (and are still trying but getting there). We have got some friends seriously praying about it as of this morning… Yes, you Sarah, and Jen, and Krysten, and Hannah, and Owen. We have been pressuring them along with some others and are seriously convinced it will all work out:)
Also besides the pressuring we have been doing we have also found a place to live, a really truly great one I must add if you would ever like to visit;) And have also been looking into learning the language. We found a good school that supports missionaries and expats or just anyone wanting and willing to learn Khmer. The school is called G2K (Gateway to Khmer) where we will start attending the 13th of February (I think). And we are all super duper excited, and the teeniest bit overwhelmed. Us Taviano’s have not been to school in quite awhile (especially the adults). We have actually found a school that will have some purpose and effect in our lives!!! Other than math, or spelling, or science we get to learn a new Language. The language of CAMBODIA!!!
Lucky us our house came fully furnished so we haven’t any need for buying main items such as refrigerators or dressers, or beds! Well maybe another bed because us three girls (who are not super short) have been squeezing into a bed that we think is king sized but have heard that there aren’t really “sizes” in CAMBODIA. Now we are heading out to lunch (us 4 Taviano girls) because Dad is at a meeting.
Hopefully I will be blogging frequently (I know I always say that)! But for now I have gotta leave! Leave my house that I live in in CAMBODIA!
If you have any questions I would LOVE to answer them in my next blog post, the one that I will be writing from CAMBODIA!!!
