So here we are at William Booth college. It is a strange feeling to stand in our new flat filled with boxes and every surface covered with knick-knacks and do-dawds.
I don’t even know how to put words to all the conflicting emotions and thoughts I have at this point. Two weeks ago I was on the mission field doing national youth work in Latvia today I am a student at a college in London (I don’t really feel like a cadet yet, since we have not been in uniform).
The girls are having a good time everyday new friends stop by to play with them and take them out to the play ground hich is marvelous, I have a feeling they will love our two years here.
Me and Hanna feel completely left out and cut of from the rest of the world. We have no mobile phones (hence no phonebooks with numbers of friends, if you are a friend email me your number!!) and no internet access. The college has an “Internet cafe” but the computers are slower than old PIIs running XP it is horrendous, you pay for half an hour and spend 15 minutes logging in. There is no way to get broadband in the flat except if you get a Mobile internet GPRS from 3 or Vodaphone but i have a terrible feeling we are going to need a british citizen to sign for it for us since we have no work here or in Sweden hence no credit rating. So there it is we are just off the mission feild feeling blue with no contact with any of our friends. It is very lonely. If you are a friend give us a ring or send us a post card, we would really appreciate it. (The phone number and adress is posted on my contact info on facebook, friends only)
On top of that most of the college is empty since we are one of the first families to arrive (and we have also arrived before most of the staff) so it’s a bit of a ghost town.
I am sure everything will sort itself out whith time, and we are happy we are here, just wish it would start allready!
