will be provided for four of the female soccer players that I met while I was in Papua a few weeks ago! We are so excited about this and it exceeds my (Heidi) expectations! More info to follow in a later blog.

We feel like we are finally settling into life here, and enjoying ourselves, even amidst the difficult adjustments.
