Interesting neighbors

Our neighbor, Holger, from across the street came over to introduce himself and his pet rat tonight.  We were outside trying to put the finishing touches on a covered patio when he came.  He's a really nice guy, but I must admit, having a pet rat seems a bit weird.

Anyway, we have been praying for open doors in our village, and for high-speed Internet, which they told us was unavailable.  It turns out that Holger has the fastest connection in the village, and that he would be happy to let us hook up a high-powered WLAN so we can use his connection.

He seems quite open to a relationship, and possibly to the Gospel.  God is a God of good things... and He knows what He's doing.  And we may just be the right people for the job of sharing the Good News with him.

For a limited time only...

Here are some pictures of our house (from the real estate agent's website).  They show a "before" picture of the house... just so you can get an idea of what our rental house looks like.

We FINALLY found a house!  If you've followed our blogs, you've seen that we've had a lot of trouble finding a place.  Although the house we settled on wasn't our first choice because of the size, we got it for a good price and it's incredibly convenient - only a few hundred feet from the girls' school and a few minutes from Ryan's school.

So... bottom line: God is good!  He doesn't always work on our time schedule, but it definitely pays to trust Him!
