Our move to France is becoming more of a reality. Over the past few weeks we have been liaising with some very helpful people who live in Brittany to get their opinion on the area, our map is now more highlighter pen than region(!) with numerous places to visit, churches to attend, markets to experience, villages to explore and people to meet.
The aim is to shortlist places until we find the village that God intends us to live, I’m kinda hoping for a flashing, neon sign saying “ICI! ICI!”
We are doing our best to brush up on our French, reading French children’s books to Charlotte and William and listening to Michel Thomas French CD in the car, sometimes it seems like an impossibility, but it’s important we try.
We have now booked up our gite and ferry for our stay in November and then I’ll need to schedule in some property viewings and arrange meetings regarding work opportunities. I’m even hoping to take the children to a Toddler Group in St Mayeux, possibly the only one in Brittany!
God is gently preparing us and we feel He is getting us ready for “something”, but we may not know what it is until we’re there, naturally want to find solutions to everything beforehand, but God wants us to trust Him and have faith, and if there is one thing we can rely on it’s Him!
