We've Arrived!

Well -- after an arduous 25+hr trip from chattanooga to atlanta, to detroit, and japan - we have finally arrived on the island of Saipan - our new home :) We have arrived during the rainy season (or should we say, the more rain season :), and it is pouring outside as i type. Our flight came in on Sept 1 at about 1:40am, and we were greeted by SM's as well as some clinic and school staff! Since we got here, we have picked up our vehicle (which we shipped from CA), registered it in saipan and got our local drivers licenses! We start work next week at the lovely SDA Dental clinic! We had a chance to look around this beautiful green island this morning, and feel lucky to be surrounded by God's beauty, as well as some great people!
More info/catching up to come -- as well as some pictures :)
Thank you everyone for your prayers!
