We have a house!! Yay!!! God is so good and He is always on time. On Saturday, Darin and I went to look at a house in one of the settlement areas near us. This house ended up not having indoor plumbing, which made it a no for our family. We left feeling really disappointed and stressed and tired and confused. We decided to drive around a bit and see if anything caught our eye. Nothing did, so we decided to head for home. On the way, we passed a building that we drive past daily. We weren’t even sure if this was just an open building or a house, but we decided to stop and ask. Long story short, it was a house, it has been vacant for 2 years and soon it will be filled with Feys!

The house sits between the Catholic Church and the housing complex of the nuns/sisters. The priests used to stay in the house and it is full of books, filing cabinets and lots of loose papers. There is also a lovely statue of Jesus greeting all who enter. The house needs work…quite a bit of work. The electricity needs to be hooked up again, plumbing needs to be sorted, the kitchen area is having some demolition work done, the back door is bricked in, the floors are a mess and there is a lot of stuff that needs to happen in the next week and a half before we move in. We know it can be done, but sometimes we get tired thinking about it all. God has been so faithful up to this point and He will not leave us now!

Here are a few before pictures just to give you an idea of where we will be living:

Thank you all so much for praying. Please don’t stop now!
