Yay! We’re homeowners! After many months of praying to find a house within the area where we recently lived, with a commute time relatively close distance to NYC for Perze’s job, within our price range, with enough space for all four of us, a good school system for Emma, and still close enough for us to traverse to south jersey for weekends to participate in our ministries. The search proved tough around our area since taxes are high around us, and the prices of homes for a three bedroom proved to seem impossible. Compared to homes in south jersey, it felt difficult to find a house that fit our criteria that was within our price range. A lot of houses we saw were either too old, too dirty, too worn, too small, too expensive, or two bedrooms. But everything was in God’s perfect time. We had the amazing pleasure to have met a christian realtor, who not only really walked novices through such a stressful process, who met us at every quick opportunity to schedule showings, gave us helpful advice, but who we have gotten to know on a personal level- being encouraged to know that he’s very active in […]
Thanks for everyone who prayed for us and with us these couple of weeks. There were bad news and even worse news, but by the grace of God and much faith and prayer, courage to believe that God brings us to places He wants us to be in life, we’ve managed to hold hands on our knees and go through a lot of waiting periods. The bad news about the banks and our almost-to-be house finally came in today with the final approval.

Thank You Jesus for Your faithfulness and promises And even if things didn’t turn the way we’d want You are faithful and promises to get us through …is beyond enough.
Perze got his bonus figure today! wow. We weren’t really expecting it, but at the perfect time, God had allowed it. He has answered our prayers about the rest of the money for the downpayment/closing costs/fees. Thank you Lord. Thank you for looking in our hearts, hearing our prayers. There’s still a long way to closing so we ask that you fulfill the rest of the process. In Jesus name, amen.
