We have been living in a holiday rental since we arrived in the Netherlands at the beginning of August. The scenery is beautiful, and people tell us, “Oh, it must be nice to have a bit of a holiday.” But that’s not how the last weeks have felt. We’ve been busy arranging all kinds of paperwork, worrying about not having found a house yet, getting to know the congregation, and working from our temporary home.
This week, however, we have decided to have a proper holiday and do some fun things. We went to the zoo and are taking things easy – as good as it goes!
