Praise Him for the mountains!!
As Brian says (quite often) "sanctification's hard y'all!" Our vision of what this journey would be was much different than the reality. This place is much like home, but much different as well. There are wards on every corner instead of Baptist churches. There are 3 LDS temples within view of my neighborhood. I am surrounded by people who believe they are Christians but couldn't be farther from the truth of the gospel. Our ideas of living in community were maybe too lofty and unrealistic. On one hand we have never been this close and open with a group of people. On the other hand relationships still feel distant and sometimes forced.
