We officially threw in the towel on selling our house (for now). The night before we left Bozeman, we had some students contact us about renting our house. We thought it would be wise to take advantage of the opportunity and we had them sign a year lease. The bad news is that we have to be landlords, something we’re not excited about. The good news is that last weekend we found a place that is bigger than we hoped for and in a great location in Portland. We signed the lease to move in May 1st!
We’re incredibly excited to get settled in Portland, get some traction with the ministry there.
I (Matt) am headed to California for the Catalyst West conference along with my co-leader Justin this week to hopefully gain some insight and inspiration into the next steps of the ministry in Portland. And next week Jody is taking in the Orphan Care Summit where she’ll learn more about helping our ministry connect to the need of orphans worldwide.
As you can see we’re not bored around here! Thanks for all your prayers during this time. We continue to covet them for our sanity as we live out of suitcases for a couple more weeks. We give thanks for you daily!
