We are now here in Birmingham and this last week we have been settling into our new home. We arrived on Monday and have a nice little flat, including a very small living area. We felt very fortunate to have been allocated this as not everyone has a flat, some just have two en-suite bedrooms.
IMC (International Mission Centre) is set in lovely grounds and is a great old building. This week has involved learning our way around the maze of corridors and finding out about all the facilities. We've also been getting to know the other people who will be training with us, some, like us, who are here till Christmas, and others who will be here the whole year before going overseas indefinitely.
The most enjoyable part about Birmingham so far has been the food! Lunch and Dinner are prepared by an amazing cook. The food she produces is some of the best I've ever tasted, and she does it twice a day! I think we shall be rolled out of here at Christmas several sizes larger.
Last week we read an interesting story on the BBC about Nepal, especially interesting for any of you planning to come visit. You may well know what I'm talking about, but if not check out the story following this link:
