Well, things continue to move forward for us on the transition front. The garage sale was a success, allowing us to get rid of a lot of stuff and giving us some much needed funds in the process. I also sold my pickup last week to a guy here in town and we've worked out an arrangement wherby I can share it with him until we leave, which is great!
And if that wasn't enough...we sold the house too! Yep, after waiting for eight weeks we got an offer in the morning and had the whole deal sealed by the 4:00 that afternoon. So, while were excited about that, we are also anxious since we have to be out by June 9th. We are hoping/planning to stay in Sioux Center until at least July 1st, so we'll be looking for some temporary housing for about three weeks. I'm currently on the prowl for a few sturdy refrigerator boxes taht I can duct tape together! =)
So day-by-day this whole process is becoming more and more a reality and we are continuing to feel affirmed about this next step in our lives. While we are feeling bad about leaving Sioux Center, we are also eagerly anticipating what God has in store for us in Grand Rapids.
We are seeing how the Lord provides and have faith that he will continue to do so.
