Another way we've seen God's faithfulness in answered prayer is in regard to our family van. As I've mentioned in previous updates, our van is getting too old to re-register, and we have been praying for God to provide us with a new one. Finances have begun coming in toward that need, and so far we have $4,000 set aside. A used van in good condition costs about $25,000 so we are about a fifth of the way there. We are greatly encouraged by the faithfulness of God.
In regard to the home that we are trying to purchase, we did hit a bump in the road when we found out that the owners didn't have all of the necessary legal paperwork, however, they did immediately file for that paperwork (which was another answer to prayer). One bank that we have been communicating has been very positive. We hope that within a month or two by the grace of God, we will have some very good news for you on that front. Please, continue praying with us for this need. There have been so many huge answers to prayer in regard to buying our own home, and we are continuing to proclaim the faithfulness of God.
