We would like to introduce you to a new friend of our family's:

We are now proud owners of this 704 ft2 house in Longview!  It is 4 miles from Missionary TECH Team, though we had hoped originally to move closer to TECH. 

Why did we buy a house?--- you might ask.  Great question!  God made it clear to us that we had a lot more to do here in Longview, so we knew that we could either 1) continue to pay rent, or 2) accept a loan our family arranged for us, and purchase a house where the five-year mortgage payments are comparable to the rent we’re paying. 

This house was a foreclosure, and it was originally being sold for $25,000.  We, of course, could never pay for that… and we would not want to have a very long-ranged loan, so we were fortunate to get the house under 15,000!  There is a LOT of work to do on the house, and we’re hoping to be living in it by February 1st! 

There will be more pictures to come, but we just wanted to show you our new sweet friend!
