Our new house on the YWAM base!!

How many people does it take to move the Wright family from their rental house in town to their newly built house on the YWAM base?


Starting to load the Wright truck

Benjamin and Adam take apart shelves

William, Bosco and Mario load up the Diguna lorry

Maria sweeps the bedroom

Eric is ready...the lorry is full

Jeff opens the gate for the lorry to set out from the Wrights' rental house

Yolam and team follow the lorry to the YWAM base

The Wright family leaves their rental property for the last time

The Diguna lorry enters the YWAM compound

The lorry and the Wrights drive through the YWAM base to the farthest corner where the new house is waiting

'thar she blows!'

Most of the team that helped with the move in many different ways

Even putting in the lightbulbs was a team effort!

The ladies did an awesome job cleaning the new house so all we had to do was unpack and move in!

The little ladies cheered us on from the sidelines and did a great job staying out of the way

Now, a couple weeks later, here's what the inside looks like, starting with the view from the kitchen towards the dining room and front doors,

looking from the sitting room through the dining room towards the kitchen,

Kezi, Noah and friends in the sitting room playing with play-do,

Looking into the sitting room from the back door with John's study in background

The kids' bathroom

Aidan's first night in his OWN room

Noah and Kezi's first night in their new room

Kezi and Noah's room by day

Vikki's favorite room in the whole house...her study!

It was a lot of work, but we did it!!!

Many thanks to all who pitched in and made the move
fun, quick and somewhat 'easy'.

We couldn't have done it without you guys!

Dear Vikki and John,
I'm delighted you are finally into your own house on the YWAM base and do trust you will soon be feeling really settled there.
Hope this year will be a special one for all of you.
Much love, Barbara
