housing update

We want to thank so many of you for praying for a home for us here. There had been no new available properties to view for about a month, but last weekend we viewed six different places, including one of the apartments below.

The one place we thought would be a good fit had been rented that very morning. But that didn't take God by surprise! And it's been a very good thing for us to wait. There have been real benefits to living right here on the center grounds.

We could be no closer to the school for the classes Amy, Elise and Michael take!

We are in the hub of all the action, so we are getting to meet lots of people, and the kids have the opportunity to get to know and play with lots of children after school hours and on the weekends.

There's always a soccer or Frisbee game going on in the field, or a board game being played, or kids who want to play Legos with Michael. Our apartment is usually full of kids after school.

If we hadn't lived in the guesthouse for this long, we wouldn't have had such a feel for how much is going on at the center.

The Lord has also used this time to help us begin to get our bearings, and to define what is most important in a home here. Though some days we feel the lack of space, and the desire to be more settled in our own place, we do trust that God's timing is perfect, and we look forward to see how He will provide!

Thanks again for praying for us. We thank you for praying that we would have patience to wait on the Lord, and to trust Him fully!
"But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am amply supplied...and my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus!"
Philippians 4:18&19
