~Our HUGE answer to prayer!~

Our God is an awesome God! I love it that He CARES about what we care about. For 2 years we have been praying and feeling like it was God’s timing to get a house in the USA. But at the same time we did NOT want to go into debt. Each time we are in the USA we feel badly inconveniencing family and friends by staying with them for long periods of time with our family of 6…soon to be 7. We were asking God that when He wanted us to have a house, He would just DROP ONE in our laps. God has worked a miracle…and we are now the owners of a home – debt free. This will help us to be able to continue missionary work and give of our resources to God’s work. Our family is very excited about having our own place to “hang our hats” when we are stateside, even though our house is a fixer-upper. God surprised us with this baby, and at the same time gave us our home. =) He knew that we would have to have some place to stay while we are back home having the baby. Another neat thing that God did was he provided a house that is kitty-corner from my sister Laura and her family's house, so when we are on the mission field they can keep an eye on it for us. We praise God for providing for our needs!!!!! =)

I love the timing of new baby and new (to you) house! Now, no one could have planned that except King Jesus!
AND...drum roll here ^!^!^!^!!...
Can you believe it?! You will be next door to your very own sister! I would say that's another kind plan from King Jesus.
Now, back down to real living...You sure have a LOT of work to do on that house, but I trust each of your family will survive the struggle.
With happiness and love,
Mom D
