30 days

When we moved to our new village, we decided to spend thirty days exploring our new area. Linnea had read a book called Love where you live, by Shuna Pilgreen and we decided to implement some of the suggestions in her book. The author’s premise is that we are a sent people and God has designed for us to be in this place at this time and to reach the people in this place for Him. So in order to understand where we live, we needed to explore our area.
so we made a list of 30 things to try or see in thirty days. We did almost everything! Sadly, all town events have been canceled because of the virus. But the food here is amazing!
