Well, we've been praying for months now that the Lord would lead us to the street and the house that He had prepared for us and, praise be to Him, He has...419 Sierra Niltepec! Aside from a long day of delayed flights on Thursday we made it safely to Reynosa on Friday and by Sunday afternoon we were signing our lease. We could not have done it without our good friends and Children's Home directors Betsy and Randall. Randall had graciously set up appointments all day Friday for us to see houses in a variety of areas, price ranges, and sizes. I'm not exaggerating when I say we probably looked at 10-12 houses in one day!
It had become a bit of a joke between Brad and I that while I was praying for safe, big , and pretty, he was praying CHEAP!! Well God heard us both! We could not ask for a better place for our family to experience Reynosa. The Lord has blessed us with abundantly more than we ever expected. He never ceases to amaze!
Now, the countdown is on. In four weeks, Lord willing, we will be on our way. We've had a few snaffoos with our visas which are a requirement to have our belongings moved. However, we've got the ball rolling again and we know God will get them here in the right time.
The tractor trailer which will carry our belongings is being delivered on March 30th! That means we need to get everything packed to go asap and we will be staying with Brad's parents until we leave on April 20. (Pray for them!!) We still need to rent our primary house and sell the animals and Brad's Corvette, so please pray for us in that regard.
Thanks to everyone who has prayed for us to find our house. Please continue to keep us lifted up as we get closer to d-day. We will need abundant grace to get everything completed. Pray also for our parents and our friends and family here that they will have the peace and comfort that only God can provide in this situation.
I'm attaching a video tour of the house in Reynosa. Please don't judge me too harshly! Brad called me the HGTV girl... :)
