Thirteen weeks and counting! I can’t believe how quickly time is flying by and how much we still have to do.
Our home has never been cleaner than it has over the past few weeks. That’s because at any minute we could get a call from a realtor who wants to show our house to a potential buyer. What does that mean? It means we are spending our mornings with a cup of coffee in one hand and a bottle of Windex in the other. We are ready!
Sadly, it appears the housing market is as bad as we were told. Over the course of three weeks, we’ve had only one viewing and one open house (with zero visitors!).
Fundraising is going fairly well. We’ve received just over one third of the total we require in order to go to Kosovo for the year, but we’re not really sure where the rest of the money will come from. We’re just confident that it will come.
In the midst of a dry housing market, a draught of job openings, and a famine-like economy, we believe God is calling us to take this step of faith, to leave our current jobs, and to take our family to Kosovo for a year. We’ve prayed, we’ve consulted, we’ve listened. And we believe this is what God is calling us to. So, we’re stepping out, putting ourselves out there. I feel vulnerable. And weak.
I think that’s right about where we’re supposed to be.
“That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” – 2 Corinthians 12:10
