We arrived in California on October the 9th and can't believe we've been here almost 2 months already.

James started working by November 1st. SO thankful he was able to find work so quickly… and in the part of town we were hoping for: Carlsbad, CA. He finished his training just in time for Black Friday.[googlemaps https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d428082.84046145115!2d-116.64467547788405!3d33.04600849303653!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x80dc73453f3bee59%3A0xa4cb5592fcf65d2f!2sCarlsbad%2C+CA!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sus!4v1387231595248&w=600&h=450]

Malia was able to start working November 20th (and in a strange turn of events found out the girl who had the position before her had her last day THE SAME DAY we arrived in San Diego. Crazy the way God works things out.) She is working with Mechanical Engineers in Cardiff by the Sea as an assistant and literally has a beach view from her desk:

Disclamer: this is not ACTUALLY the view from Malia's desk.

We lived with our (WONDERFUL AMAZING FANTABULOUS) friends, the Anderbergs during the job hunt process. None of this would have been possible without their help. The week we both were officially employed, we also found our new place! We're living in the Tri City area (Carlsbad, Vista, San Marcos) and it's beginning to look a lot like home. :)

We are staying busy and visiting the beach often. God is doing some good work in our hearts and in our lives. We greatly appreciate all your prayers and phone calls! Missing all of our friends in Colorado, Africa and New Jersey very much but thankful to be in this season God has for us.

Home Sweet
