PRAYER and Paint

We are busy getting the house ready for people to come and look at it.
Yeah!! We have 3 different couples coming to look at the house this week. One couple Wednesday evening at 6:00. They are looking at the house to considering buying it. We haven't even put the for sale sign in the yard yet. They just heard about the house, said that they were interested, came to Aaron's office, and asked to see it right away! Could it possibly be that easy? Our God is the God of doing the impossible. Pray! Seriously, please, say a prayer right now that they will want it. (I discovered a while ago that I often had good intentions of praying for someone's requests and then I would forget. I then made a habit of praying right then and there as soon as they ask me. God listens and hears no matter where we are or what we are doing. This has made me a much better prayer warrior.) God can make this happen!!! Pray!! Please!! Remember: "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. " James 5:16 b

We have another couple coming Friday at 11:30 to look at the house to consider a lease to own option. A third couple is coming Saturday afternoon to also consider a lease to own option. If the outright sale of the house doesn't happen, this would be our second preference over just renting.

We have also gotten a few calls about just renting the home. Pray that this huge financial burden will be lifted quickly before we leave for Alabama. Pray that it will just be sold without us having to do the lease to own option. Pray that if the Wednesday night couple doesn't want it another family soon will.

Hey Rachel - sounds like things are going well! I'm sure you are quite busy!!! I understand how much work it takes to move...I've done it more times than I care to remember :) Thanks for asking me to help with the KJV blog, but unfortunately, I won't be able to help at this time. We've got a brand new missionary family coming to join us next week, and all my time is going to be taken up with them for a while. I'm afraid that I would forget to do it or that I couldn't get it prepared well. It might be a possiblity in the future, though. Your move and the sale of your home are in our prayers!

I'm praying! The Lord certainly has a plan for your family. Keep on trusting Him!

BTW, I enjoyed your post about Bro. Roloff on the KJV site. My father-in-law was a good friend of Bro. Roloff and flew to Texas and Washington many times to help him fight the oppostition.

I'm sure you must know Wiley & Fay Cameron. They are members at the church my husband pastored in Georgia and were such a tremendous blessing to our family.
