Home Sweet Home!

The Lord is so good and His timing is perfect. Many of you know that our church here has been trying to build a house for our family to live in, but the red tape in Alexandria is outrageous! After almost 2 years, the city finally gave us the permit to build. Well, as you can see, it is a modular home that came in pieces. It was incredible to watch them swing a house around in the air and then just plop in down and bolt it together. It has been so fun for Ben and I as we get to pick out all the appliances and paint colors. Really, how many people get to do that (and pay for it all with the church credit card - hee-hee!) Like I said, the Lord is good and I think the 2 years wait will be worth it all when we finally get moved in and know we don't have to move again. The house will be complete in April-ish. Just a few more months of waiting!
