We have chosen our apartment! It didnt happen as quickly as we had hoped, because we really wanted to be moving in today, but we found a few good ones and it took a little longer for us to feel a peace about which one was right for us. The main reason we chose Nantucket was because we felt the location of our unit in the complex was ideal for meeting people and building relationships with them. Nantucket is a small community compared to the other resort style apartments around here. The inside of the apartment was out-ranked by some of the others that had more upgrades or nicer things, but at the end of the day we felt a peace and are very excited about our place. The things we liked about the other places were really not that important in the long run. We came to California for ministry and I really feel like that is what guided our apartment choice. We have already met two really nice couples, one from Egypt and one from India. All we are waiting on now is Monday morning for our application to be reviewed and to finish the paperwork part so we can get the keys and move in.
Tomorrow is the first Sunday for two services at South Bay Church. We spent the morning hanging door flyers in the neighborhoods. I will take some pictures. Its a big day for South Bay tomorrow and we are so glad to be here!
