We have spent the past year more or less trying to shed ourselves of what we own.  Its not so much selling your things as adopting an attitude of not wanting to acquire things- “minimalism.”  So we find ourselves in the strange position of purchasing many things this week to set up our household.  As I Cor. 10:31 shows even buying appliance can be done to the glory of God.  On the one hand it seems strange to purchase after wanting to get rid of so much, on the other hand if we are to truly be effective we need to be able to  be here for the long haul and that means equipping ourselves to live here- it’s not a short term trip. Our washer is samsung, our fridge is a Sharp (it comes with a lock), our stove, a glass top is a Beko from Turkey.

We will probably move into our apartment on Thursday as we unpack our trunks and suitcases.  It’s a bit like a treasure hunt as things packed long ago emerge.  We’re hoping to get the internet connection up but its not there yet.  It is amazing how much is available.
