House #5 in Cali

Posted: December 2, 2014 in Life in Cali, preparations

As I promised, here is a blog about house #5 for us in Cali. Our move more challenging than the previous. We are not just moving a family of three, we are moving hotelcork that houses up to 24 people. That is a lot of bunk beds, mattresses, towels, sheets, pillow, curtains, storage, pots and pans.

This is the house God lead us to. It had been a really crazy search. This house is such a blessing in the fact that it is in a good neighborhood, right next to the one we lived in previously. It is half way between the church and where the future construction will take place in the future. It is less expensive. The owner is so easy going he will pretty much let us do anything in the house we need to make it work for the ministry. After talking to him for about 10 minutes face to face he handed us the keys, lowered the rent, and gave us two weeks free to start the needed repairs.

We lived with our friend Magda for 2 weeks going back and forth cleaning and doing the most urgent repairs. Once we got the living room painted we decided to move all of our things from storage to the finished living room as there were so many things we needed. After a few more days we moved in (Nov 30) and now are more able to work on the various projects of further repairs and painting in preparation for a pastoral couple from Brazil arriving this coming Saturday for an interview with Extreme for our next church plant.

So with that said, I am going to get back at it. This has been nice to sit in a breezy spot and get a break from the paint fumes. I will post again with the finished Cork house, hotel cork and ECC (Extreme Center Cali). Enjoy the photos.
