Big Steps

Hello,

The Lord has blessed us these past few weeks. We were able to find a nice house at a very reasonable (for England) price. The irony is that the house is right next door to a house we had previously rented back in 2003-2005. The owners are doing a few things and we will be able to move in the week of the 12th. It is in a village a few miles outside of Liskeard and it is about a 15 minute drive into town. Does not seem much in American culture but that is a fair drive here. Petrol is a bit less than $9.00/gallon so we will need to get better at consolidating trips.

Part of living in a village and not in town are the occurrences of both adults needing a car to go different ways. We have a car that was given to us last year that we can use until June but we have been looking for another vehicle for Andrea to drive. After three weeks of looking we felt led to buy a 97 Accord. Less than 100,000, new tyres and a brand new safety inspection made it a perfect match for what we were after. We got a great price and so Andrea is mobile again.

We would ask for prayer as we need to find some items for the new house. It always seems to work better when you follow the Lord's guidance. It usually saves you money as well.
