New House Pictures, Woohoo

Greetings from our new home in Kotido!

We moved in about 3 weeks ago and we've really been enjoying it. It may be a little late for a Thanksgiving blog but it truly has been a month of blessings and we're very thankful. The first being the house followed by a motorbike and a new car! (That should be read like the announcer from "The Price Is Right"). To top it all off, in the last six months we've been given enough money to pay for all of those things, Praise God. Obviously we don't want to glorify our material possessions but we do want to glorify our Father in heaven who has abundantly provided for us. So without further ado, here are some pictures.

 Our Bedroom

 Our Kitchen/Sitting Room

Our Entire House (you can even see our latrine on the left of the Bedroom behind that kid standing there)

 Sitting Room looking into the Kitchen

 Inside the Kitchen

Also inside the Kitchen

 The Workshop on the front of the property we live on

This is our kitchen table on the evening of our Christmas dinner, hence the candles
(I know it's not technically Christmas yet, but this was the only time Kerri and I could celebrate with just us, next week we're celebrating with the Williams)

Kerri washing laundry as I type this blog.

Our new ride. It's a 1978 Landcruiser bj40 with only 60,000 km for those who care. For those who don't, just know it's a very strong vehicle that can stand up to our ridiculous roads. There's even a winch.

So that's all for now, we love you all, and miss you very much.



  1. Love hearing from you guys!!! Your new place looks like home. Joy and peace to you for Christmas.

  2. Wha??? No stats on the bike?? Come on, slackers! Sweet ride on the BJ. Rocky would be jealous. I love the 'you can see the latrine behind the random kid standing there'. Too much fun. Love you guys! Happy Hanukkah! (j-man here under the wife's google-ness, in case you couldn't tell)

  3. P.S. You know we're so angry you got mud huts before we did. We were into mud huts SO WAY BEFORE YOU!!! and you know it. (yes, still j-man here)

  4. Your truck reminds me of The Gods Must Be Crazy. Maybe one day your truck will end up in a tree too!

  5. Your grandmother brought pictures to the Christmas eve party at your Mom and Dad's house. I had missed your blog post. It was a treat to see the progress ya'll have made.

    May God's peace and grace rest on you both,

  6. Merry Christmas! so glad to see you're still alive! haha. I am so jealous right now. Kerri, your kitchen/sitting area seriously looks like Alex's Hut on the 'fun side' in Madagascar. haha :) Sure miss you guys!

  7. yalls house looks amazing!!!! Can't wait to be back!! -Camille :)

  8. Sooo, I definitely read that list in Bob Barker's voice even before you told me to. Just sayin.

    I LOVE your new house!!! It is absolutely beautiful and looks so accommodating. I've been looking into natural building methods, the process of building your own house and the tiny house movement here in the states lately. Your awesome abode is definitely inspiring. :)
