Mice have their nooks, bears have caves, and Hobbits have their Hobbit Holes. I think we all have the need to know that, at the end of the day, there’s a place where we’ve hung our pictures on the wall and things are familiar.
As relatively new people to this culture, we feel the need for this experience more than ever. At the end of this month, the lease is up at our current apartment and we are needing to move somewhere with a bit more room. Babies take up more space than you’d think. So far, the house hunt has been a bit discouraging - the places in our budget are either taken before we can put our name in or they are too far away from the places we do ministry. On top of that, there was a house that we fell in love with but someone else made a better deal on it. We ended up eating a lot of carbs to compensate...not proud of that one.
The renting market here in Dublin is pretty cutthroat. We are starting to feel pressure to be as aggressive as we can to find a new home. This has caused us to fall for the fear that we alone are responsible for obtaining our needs. What we know we need right now is prayer from you, our team.
- Please pray that we will trust God.
- Pray for smooth going with logistics of moving our stuff (our yearly Connect conference falls on the first of August) and the financial stress associated with moving.
- Pray for a place where we can feel at home that’s within our budget and close enough to town.
Thanks for being there for us! We love and appreciate you guys.
