What you are looking at is part of the IBYM campus, what our house will look like, and where it will be located. We are very excited. This picture is hanging up on our bulletin board in our bedroom so we can constantly be reminded of some of our future. 🙂 The house pictured belongs to a co-workers – it is not ours! We will be building ours, but it will look like this (all the missionary homes look alike, just like all the dorms look the same, and all the classrooms look the same). Our house will be situated toward the back of the campus, beyond the married student’s housing (where the red arrow is pointing). We will be clearing the land back there, past the soccer field, in order to build it. Our back view will be that mountain in behind. We will be having one other missionary couple joining us over there sometime next year. Other than that – we’ll be mostly by ourselves. And yes, if Lisa has anything to say about it, we will have a guest bedroom so all of you can come visit us and have a place to stay! 🙂
We got our monthly report from BCM a couple days ago and are happy to say that our support has gone up about another $50. That doesn’t sound like much, but honestly, that’s HUGE for us. It’s so cool to see how the Lord is providing little by little. We know He wants us there in January; we’re anxious to see how He’s going to get us there. We need around $400 more per month before we can go.
We have also begun our visa process. We have most of the papers submitted. We need to get our passports notarized and then stamped by the Peruvian consulate. And then we wait! We’re getting good at waiting.
Thanks for your prayers!
