I’ve decided to stop apologizing for my lack of posting and complaining about my lame finger. So there. That’s the last you’ll hear of those two things…but I just had to get them out there one more time. I’m turning a new leaf today. Aren’t you glad?

We saw some okay flats and a big house for rent. But then we got a brilliant idea, and all credit goes to my smarty Mother-in-Law. 🙂 You see, while in Zhitomir we were staying in a house that a Ukrainian man renovated into a sort of guest house, or hostel for people who come to visit MTU. This owner lives in Israel and his mother manages the house. We really liked the house! It has 3 rooms upstairs and space for a living room downstairs, a pretty open kitchen/dining area, and it’s a house…not 9 stories up! The best part about that particular house is its location. It’s literally a 4 minute walk from there to MTU. Best location ever!!! My oh so smart Mother-in-Law, Cindy, suggested we ask if we could rent that house for our first year. Normally it is rented out, a room at a time, and charged by night. But, what if the owner would let us lease it for a year? What if? Why not ask? So, Jed asked Ira, the director of MTU, if she would contact the owner and ask him about us renting it. Now we just wait for an answer.
On another note, we have been blown away by the generosity of donors in the last couple of days. Oh, My. Word. Seriously! We have gotten big donations from people we don’t even know personally!!! Incredible!!! Oh the ugly cry, I couldn’t hold it back. Generous supporters, if you are reading this, please know we are so incredibly humbled and blessed. Thank you doesn’t seem adequate. But, THANK YOU anyway. THANK YOU!!!!

One step at a time, one foot in front of the other. God is making the path straight. Wahooooo!!!!
This is so great, guys. I'll keep praying that God moves on the heart of the landlord in Israel and that all will go super-smoooooooth for you. 🙂
Yes, and amen. And that's what His promises are to you–He's gonna take care of it, perfectly. 🙂
So glad your MIL had such a wonderful idea… praying praying for the perfect house 🙂 Wonderful to hear about the support you are getting too 🙂
