In the Spirit of Hunters/Gatherers.. aka our new life

One of our favorite wedding gifts we were given was a couple's devotional Bible from Grandma Judy.  We were reading today, and Josh showed me one of his favorite verses that totally relates to the experiences we will be having in Newtok:
 
"Now then get your equipment - your quiver and bow - and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me.  Prepare me the kind of tasty food I like and bring it to me to eat, so that I may give you my blessing before I die."
                                                                    -Genesis 27:3-4
 
I know this is our first post, and we have not yet discussed the kind of lifestyle Josh & I will be living nor have we explained anything about Newtok - this will happen soon... promise! - but this is exactly why I feel comfortable moving to rural Alaska with this man. (Among other reasons haha.)

 
Love the new Bible
