The terrain in and around the city is quite hilly/mountainous.  We often notice that in order to build and move forward with construction projects, there is much work to be done in digging away layers of rock.  Moving overseas and living in a different culture often feels like the same process is happening in OUR HEARTS!  God is faithfully chipping away at areas of pride and fear and revealing the layers within us.  This is not always a pleasant or painless process, so please pray that we will be reminded of His goodness and His love for us as He refines us!
