Update to our newsletter
Ok, ok, I know I just published a post today, a whole newsletter in fact, so what more could I possibly have to say. First of all, we are not moving…yet. We had a few issues with the owners of the house we were going to rent that made us think stepping way back from that particular housing option was a good idea. We did look at another house today, but the price isn’t right. Darin is going to try to do a little bartering and wheeling and dealing and see what happens, but God only knows. And do you know what; I am actually ok with that! I guess I must be growing up. So, to the people of Edgerton CRC, Evergreen Ministries and everyone who read the newsletter on this here blog, we are still on Plot 94 and still trusting God for the right house for our family. The only real bummer is that I had already started packing. We had already filled the minivan with one load of stuff and I had another 3 loads ready to go. Now instead of unpacking at a new house over the upcoming week of school holiday, I will be unpacking at our current house. At least we managed to purge quite a lot of stuff, which will make the next round of packing that much easier.

In other news, I just said goodbye to my dad L We had a wonderful time with him while he was here in South Africa. Even though his plans didn’t work out 100%, we got to enjoy some extra time with him, which was fantastic. He taught us how to play farkle (dice game, learn it.), helped around the house, babysat Amo, listened to Darin and I as we sorted through some stuff that was a bit too much for just the two of us, and was just an amazing dad and Papa to us all. Lord willing, we will see him and my mom again in the New Year!

Tomorrow we start a very busy 4 day whirlwind. Crystal Paine, from Money Saving Mom is here with her family and one of her managers. Crystal was here in January and now is back to share her love of South Africa and the ministry of Take Action with her kids and husband. We are excited to show her all that has been happening since she was last here and are looking forward to some fellowship and fun as well. We will just be very busy. We are happy that Tyson and Jori will be able to participate in some of the centre visits and fun activities with us this time around.
