Russell and Iris' House

Here are a couple of pictures of the house in Gracias which Russell and Iris are renting. It's a nice place for a couple starting out. You can see in the picture above that there is a small, enclosed carport. It is so small that I don't think Russell will be parking there - I believe it will be used as a storage space.

The front room will be the living room and dining area. You can see the kitchen at the back of this area in the picture below - and David playing "fast food restaurant" in there. The kitchen is very Honduran, with not a single closed cupboard. I've had a kitchen like this in the past, and it can be a challenge to set up and keep clean. Hopefully Iris is better at this than I am!

Rental houses in Honduras don't come with a refrigerator or stove. These are items Russell and Iris will have to acquire, along with furniture. It's a good thing being young and in love make those inconveniences seem smaller. ;-D

The house has three bedrooms. Russell's intention is to use one of these as an office. Another bedroom will be used for storage, as Russell's house will be the hub for our food distribution and Bible sales ministries. This arrangement will be much more convenient for the pastors who come to pick up the food and books.

There's lots of excitement in the air around here these days!

LOve it! Rentals here don't come with appliances, either. Shocked us at first!
