Sixteen Newbies!

I spent an hour or so yesterday making a batch of 'Welcome' signs.
I'm so excited.
Seven weeks ago the Chong family arrived.  Joe, Yumi and their three children live just down the road from us.
We also have another two new long-term missionary families joining ZOE this month as well as a single lady, Kaylee.  
That's like, 7 new adults and 9 children {plus one baby on the way}.

And so, last night night we all waited and waited and waited...
Finally this beautiful, calm couple with 4 little ones made their way through Chiangmai customs into the welcoming arms of a very enthusiastic missionary mob.
Welcome, Ahn Family!! Sam, Susan, Joyce, Ethan, Chloe and Isaac.  We can't wait to get to know you!

By the way, when our kids found out that their three kids were the same ages as them but that they also have baby... the question had to be asked, "Why don't we have another baby so that we can be the same as them?"  
To which I replied we have a pet to look after now, referring to Tobi's new Siamese fighting fish that he got from his friend for his birthday!!  Good answer, I thought.

Ooh also, for the serious blog-readers amongst us, I have added an extra page to the menu on the left now called ZOE Missionary Blogs.  

Thanks for stopping by!
