2 weeks already!

Has it really been 2 weeks?!? Wow! It has certainly flown by…as I knew it would. I am attending a church called fellowship of the Emirates and have met some really great people. This coming Wednesday I get to meet up with some folks around my age(I have to get my Texas words in where I can!) for dinner. I am VERY excited to have made some new friends….I hope they like me! ( ;

God is good to provided EVERYTHING we need right when we need it! I have been shopping around for a used gas oven, microwave, and Refrigerator for the past two weeks and finally found them all in the same location! So now my kitchen is complete. All that is left is to put the bunk bed together and it will be FINISHED! Then I will post pictures.

This is a short post but there will be more exciting things to report very soon!

Enjoy the adventure friends!

Love, Jerri K.

First few days in the UAE

Hey there everyone! I wish I had a few photos to show off. I will soon! This week and next week are the "getting settled in" weeks. Next week I will be cleaning, furnishing, and decorating my apartment. I will post pics as soon as it’s done! Then I will begin my training! I also will be traveling to Germany November 2 for a women’s conference. I get to wear winter clothes! For those of you who are not aware of the UAE climate is hasn't been cooler than 98 degrees since I have been here. Last week it was over 110'! ( : YES, I have been wearing my sunscreen ( ;

I arrived to my final destination without a hitch. I had to run to the gate to catch the second leg of my flight from London to Dubai. I had an hour and a half layover (I don’t recommend.) and security was backed up. I then had to take a tram to my gate, two elevators, a few escalator...ran up to the attendant *huffin' and puffin'* and asked, "did I make it?!"..."Yes" and then I let out a loud declaration of excitement as I made my way to the terminal!

It really was that dramatic. ( ;

As soon as I have more internet time I will do more blogging! Thank You for all your support!
