People are asking what needs to be done before the women and kid's ministries are completely finished and ready for people as some people want to donate money towards that end. We are continually blessed and so grateful as this speeds up the time we can finish since we are currently saving up for the few remaining items needed to finish; landscaping such as grading, seeding, etc, thorough whole house duct cleaning before the kids come, some electrical work in the women's ministry living space and the laminate floor for the women's ministry (about 900 square feet). We are saving up for this and currently working on finishing the attic so we can put the stuff from storage that is now on the first floor up there and I am slowly unpacking the numerous boxes and bags of stuff from storage and finding homes for it. Our hope and prayers are that we will have the entire house finished by the end of August or at least all but the electrical work and drywall repair that ensues. We want the house in order to be ready for however many kids God brings!
We have come so far since we started years ago having to deal with the sewer issue (since we were on a septic system and had to find a way to hook up to the sewer)! We are very excited but know this is a big house and things take time, especially when we are doing a lot of the work ourselves (I will be installing the floor--just need to purchase the material). God's hands have been and continue to be all over this and it is an awesome thing to see and we continue to trust God's timing for completion and God to bring the kids!! We are hoping David will get to work from home more so that he will be available around 5pm to help with the homework while I cook dinner and who knows, by September that might happen! Let's keep that in prayer!!!
Grateful to all,
