My life is about to get very weird!

Well, we knew it was probably going to happen, and now it has. Our landlord has decided that he wants us to move out of the house immediately. He has realized that, in order to sell the house, he will have to repair the roof, and paint the ceilings and walls where water damage has occurred, and he prefers to do that with the house vacant.

Sadly for us, we do not yet have the buildings on our property ready to move into. With a major effort, we could probably have them closed in and water-tight in a few months, but that's not soon enough. So, we are looking at moving several times.

1. From our current rental house into another rental house, as soon as we can find one.

2. From that rental house into the first two completed buildings on the property (the team house and the warehouse/bodega).

3. From the temporary housing on the property, into our own home, when that has been constructed.

There are a lot of details to be worked out here. None of this is going to be fun. Sigh.

Sorry to hear that, moving takes so much energy and effort. I feel sorry for the little ones the most because they have to go without their favorites. I hope God finds a way for you and family to overcome all of this.

stepping stones on a path for His glory!!!! sometimes the stepping stones are placed in a manner that we have to stretch our steps...know that God has you in the palm of His hand and knows the challenges you face in your multiple moves. Psalm 66:12...He will bring you to a place of abundance!!!! God is so good...that's a portion of my scripture/prayer for the day I get online and already I've shared it with so many people today...He is soooo great!!!!! Love you Sowers Family!!!!!!

The funny thing is after he makes the repairs it will still take a long time to sell.
