Cleaned out

Many observations and predictions from older and wiser comrades on this journey have proven true. Here is one more: When you’ve fixed up your house just the way you want it (so you can sell it to someone else…), you’ll feel like buying it all over again!

Last night, as Jenny and I mopped the floor and washed the last few shelves in the woodburning stove nook, we looked around and felt a tiny twinge – not longing, but endearment. This sturdy and beautiful house made a wonderful home for us.

But more captivating than the nostalgia of looking backward is the excitement of looking forward! Our realtor came today to take pictures of our house so we can sell it — so we can follow God’s call to serve Him in the mission of building His kingdom.

If you have the interest and inclination, we would be blessed if you could please join us in praying for:

  • Wisdom to price the home correctly, given recent changes in the local housing market
  • God to be preparing just the right buyer – and to connect them to us!
  • A quick turnaround in the transaction

Below are some pictures of our house — all cleaned up and with no family inside…

    • Thanks, Erika! We have 5…but as you can see, them and all our stuff has been removed. Actually, everything is already boxed up and in the garage. We’re living with my parents while we raise funds to go back to OM. You know my parents, they’re very gracious hosts…
