Thanks so much for praying…. we found a new apartment!
The handyman at church knew a guy whose brother knew a barber who knew of a place (how’s that for connections?!?!), so Caleb went and took a look at it. I didn’t even know he was looking that particular afternoon, but he came home and told me about it. Only ten minutes walk away from our current place, 3 bedrooms, huge balcony. The asking price was a bit high, but he was able to bring them down into our budget, and ended up putting a deposit down…. without me even seeing it!!!
Part of the deal he made to lower the rent was that we would do the necessary repairs and fixing up. It needs a good amount of work before we can move in, but it’s coming along! Caleb’s been working on replacing plumbing in the kitchen and bathroom, I’ve been trying to help as much as possible with a seven-months pregnant belly, and we hired a group of guys to come in and paint all the walls. We’re hoping next week to start buying all the furniture and Insh’allah get moved in by the beginning of September!
A couple “before” pictures of the place:
Stay tuned for the “after” pictures! :)
