The first step to obtaining a cedula is to have your blood work done. This was the first time for the girls to have their blood drawn. Overall, they did good. Isabella didn't scream, but we did see lots of tears for the first time since we've been here.
This is where we had the blood work done.
Our scared faces before, except Avery. He was braver than the rest of us!
We then had to get pictures made at a photo booth in a store at the mall. Our dear friends, the Jesch's went with us to help us & translate. We had a good lunch with them & appreciate their friendship so much. It has been really sweet so far & they were a huge help before we even arrived. Here is a picture of us with them after church Sunday.

Tuesday, we went to pick up our blood work then headed to the Immigration Services office closer to downtown to actually apply for our cedulas. Another couple, one of our leaders, helped us here.
Thankfully, it all went smooth & we have numbers now!

The store you see to the left is a grocery store. They have these all over the city. Or well, the few areas I've been in anyway.
We were walking here to find a place for lunch. We need our water bottles with all the walking & sometimes the sun gets really hot, although the temperature is not. Kind of strange!
We are going to house sit for the Jesch's this weekend. It will be nice to have some space on our own for a few days.
This is the beautiful path to their door.
And this is where we will be for the weekend.
This is how we are sleeping now. To the left, you see Brook & Isabella on the floor on a mattress. Next to it, is the bed for Avery & I. As you see, I step out of bed onto Isabella's mattress. And stuff is pretty much everywhere. I'd say we are ready for a little more space! Overall, all is still good here with us & we are thankful to be staying healthy & for the hospitality we've been shown.
