Us Homeless?

As many of you know, our “perfect” seven month housing plan became a three month housing plan shortly before leaving the US.  We are currently staying in the home of another University professor (see house photos in picture section) who attends the church we are involved with here.  Unfortunately his VISA was only approved until the end of March, so he and his family will be returning from Pennsylvania in a few weeks  That means we need to find another place to live, and so far we have been unsuccessful.  It has been a challenge to find a furnished place, and most landlords want a longer lease.  We have begun looking for unfurnished places (which would be interesting) and have even called many Bed and Breakfast/ Guest Houses.   Please pray that we will find suitable housing, preferably in this area, soon.

    Hi Kristin,

    Nick and I have been sitting here tonight “catching up” with all your adventures. It is great to see pictures of you all, as well as the people you’re getting to know, the countryside, and your many experiences. And now, homeless in South Africa?! We’ll pray that God will work that out!

    The Indian Ocean looked beautiful. We are a bit envious that you’re swimming in February…however, we’re expecting temps in the high 60’s and low 70s this weekend! Yeah!!!! Can you tell we can’t wait for spring? Jim plans to do some gardening/landscaping this weekend.

    We helped out with the Redeemer Open House a couple weeks ago. It turned out great — the boys really enjoyed all the activities and it seemed like it was very well attended. We ran out of crafts in the craft room and I know the science room did as well. Guess that’s a good problem to have!

    Otherwise, we’re plugging along with school and co-op activities. With spring coming, we’re getting the “itch” to go letterboxing. Are there any boxes in South Africa?

    By the way, Nick wants to send the girls a note. Since it’s bedtime here, he will try to send something tomorrow. Watch for it…

    I know immersing yourself in a new and different culture has its ups and downs. (I spent 3 months in Ecuador with only one year of Spanish language!) I’ve particularly enjoyed reading about your friend Zanele, and empathize with your wrestling over so many needs and how to help. May God bless you for caring so much and give you wisdom in your interactions.

    Take care. Give the girls a hug for us. We’ll catch up with you again soon! We miss you guys….

    Lisa, et al.

    We will continue to pray that something will turn up soon. We love you.
