Moving to Durham…finally!

Today is the big day. In 12 hours our Virgin Atlantic plane will be lifting off from the tarmac at LAX and whisking us away to London. From there it is another hour up to Manchester, and then 2 additional hours driving time to finally arrive in Durham.

Although we will have daylight (foggy) in London, we will enter Durham in the dead of night.

When we awake on Friday morning in our new pastor’s home, we will see Durham for the first time.

And it will be raining.

And cold.

Exactly what a half/Brazilian family needs to get their system ready for the English weather.

Now, if you’ve been following this blog you have obviously noticed that “Greek like Violin” has been on a hiatus. We’ve been so terribly busy with packing and moving and packing some more that I have had to reduce my time in the Greek to almost nothing the past couple of days. But don’t worry, it’s coming back with a fury once things get a bit more settled this weekend.

So until then, thanks for reading and keep up the Greek on your end. And look for more posts on Durham to come, including pics and updates on our family as we follow God’s call to move across the pond.



  1. May God guide you!!


  2. Very excited for you and yours.


    1. Thanks Nijay. Your advice was critical to the decision to come study here at Durham with John Barclay.


      1. You will not regret it. Coming to SBL?


      2. Planning on it. Let’s meet up, at the Durham reception or elsewhere.
