June Update (con.)

Another area we have found favor in is finding a new home for our family. We have found a house to rent that is less than a block from the home we are presently in. The new house is filled with things that we have desired in a home. It has a beautiful patio, a carport (which we want to use to hold Bible studies here in our town), and it is bigger! The home we are in now has just about 900 sq. ft. The new house, including the carport and patio, has about 1290 sq. ft. The inside of the home is opened up so much more than the one we are in too. It is completely furnished with better furniture. There is a REAL washing machine in the house with a small laundry room. In the house we are in now, the small plastic washer I have has to be taken outside and attached to the outdoor sink. We store the washer in the hallway when it is not being used so that it is does not get taken. The kitchen is bigger, as well, and has so much more cabinet space! Right now we have only 3 cabinets, two small ones above our sink and one big one below!We have found so much favor with the owner of the home. He dropped $150 off of the rent, he is going to put in a NEW stove (gas, not electric, for the wonderful power outages we get to experience from time to time), NEW refrigerator, and a NEW washing machine! He knows that we have a contract on the home we are renting now until the end of September and he has agreed to hold the house for us until we are able to move in! We are praying for someone to come along and want to rent the home we are in soon. This will enable us to go ahead and make the move and still get the deposit back that we put on the house when we moved in. Here are a few more pics of our new home! God is so good!!

Prayer requests that we ask you to stand in agreement with us on:

1.Pray for the children's crusade coming up in January. Pray for continued favor with the town of Brasalito to hold the crusade there. Pray for provision for those that wish to come and help.

2.Pray for continued open doors of opportunity to share about God's abundant love and for favor to hold Bible studies in Brasalito.

3.Pray for a renter to be available soon for the home we are presently in or for the owner of this home to release us from this contract and give us our deposit back! We are believing to be in our new home by the end of July!

4.Pray for a hunger and a thirst for righteousness in our town of Potrero.

Psa 5:12 For You, Lord, will bless the [uncompromisingly] righteous [him who is upright and in right standing with You]; as with a shield You will surround him with goodwill (pleasure and favor).
