[img]http://www.sermonindex.net/images/toronto.jpg[/img]

I live in Toronto, ontario. In the Country of Canada! I have lived here all my life its a big city, actually the largest in canada with over 2 million people. I would love to know where the rest of you live and what situation it is in? I'm a city boy but I really enjoy farms and nature its my deep longing to live somewhere in Gods wonderful nature! ;-)

We live in beautiful Northern Kentucky along the narrow path. :-) Actually, Arielle took these pictures of the country side near us.

We don't live on a farm but there are MANY all around us!

Simple yet beautiful!

In Him, chanin & arielle

 Re: Where do you live?

Athens, Georgia, home of the Univeristy of Georgia Bulldogs. Also home to vast quantities of University of Georgia fornicators and drunkards, providing essentially endless oppurtunities for evangelism.

I live upstairs in a house church:

 vermont

Hello brothers and sisters,
I live in burlington vermont and have all my life. Burlington is the largest city in vermont at i believe 50 thousand people. It's said that the cows in the state out number the people, I do not believe that is true anymore.
It's humid in the summer and wicked cold in the winter get's to -60 at night sometimes.
beautiful land though.

 Re: vermont

Well I live in Troutville, VA which is about 20 miles Northeast of Roanoke, VA. Roanoke is about 250,000 in population if you include the areas directly around it. It lies in the Southwest portion of VA in the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountain ranges. Very similar to where Chanin lives except bigger mountains or hills. Very beautiful place and a great place to raise a family. Roanoke was actually in the top 15 cities to live in on some survey. It is known as the Star City of the South. In the bible belt with church buildings all over the place. My house is in Troutville which is out in the country a bit, I have 3 acres but no hroses or cattle of any kind. My daughter wants a horse and a goat, what a combo that would be. Our neighbors have horses so the kids can feed them anytime. Just moved back here from Il 3 years ago after being up there for about 5 years. I'm originally from Il and all my family is still there but I have lived in VA now over half my life. I really like it here but miss my home church and brothers and sisters in Christ back in IL.

Sorry I said so much. I guess you really just asked where we live not half our life story. Greg, you can move here if you like the country. Love to have ya around. :-)

Now I will try to put a couple of picture but I don't know how you do that on the posts.

 Re:

What a great idea to have a thread like this! You have such beautiful ideas Greg, God bless you for that!

5nva, I just have to comment on something you wrote:

Do you know what VA means in Swedish? It means: WHAT? So, not being familiar with all of the 50+ states, and especially not with all of the abbreviations, i thought: WHAT? Which state is that? :-D ;-) :-D

Well, now I know. I looked in my atlas and figured out that it had to be Virginia. And then it said Virginia in the pictures. But, to be serious, I would appreciate if you American guys could be a bit more clear when it comes to names of places and other things that may not be evident to all of us that come from the rest of the world. I guess most people know that CA means California and NY means New York and so on, but it would still be appreciated. Thanks. :-)

I will come back with some info on Gothenburg, the city that I live in.

Greetings,
Rikard

 Re:

As I said, I live in Gothenburg (Göteborg in Swedish), the second largest city in Sweden with 475 000 inhabitants.

Have a look at some pictures:
[url=http://www.goteborg.com/templates/articel.asp?id=4183]Official website of Gothenburg - picture gallery[/url]

Gothenburg is famous for its habour, its archipelago, its industry (e.g. Volvo cars), its tram and other things. It's quite a big town, but still has a small-town feel about it. However, I plan move elsewhere when I'm finished with my studies in September or so. Gothenburg is still a bit too big and noisy for me. Some smaller town of 50 000 to 100 000 inhabitants would be nice. The alternative would be living in the coutry. I love the quiet of the countryside, being close to nature. So, who knows where I will live in a year... ;-)

Yes! Great idea to see where we all come from, to be encouraged that the same Spirit is moving all over the world.

Yes,when I started to read the thread it came to my mind the same thing. Thank you riki about that note. :-) I am coming about 8000km far from usa :-) and really I am not familiar with all states in america, and when someone writes VA or something like that I am wondering where is that?

I will try to find some good pictures to show you my country :-) Acts 16:9

 Re: Where do you live?

Hi,

I am a native of Wisconsin USA. I live at in the village (population 1220) of Luck. It is about an hour and a half from Mineapolis Minnesota. (I about said MN :-) thanks for the insight Riki). There are about twenty lakes with in 10 miles of my house.

That's about it
This is a website on Luck...It's pretty dull...but all we have a s attractions arround here is lakes (we have TONS of them)
