This past week has been a whirlwind of interesting happenings. Our church has the opportunity to buy a mansion (with seven bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms and 2 half baths) on 18 acres of property (that includes a private road and five ponds) for 500,000 dollars (a foreclosure). To give you some perspective, houses similar to the one we rent a few miles away from the mansion sell for about 300,000 dollars.
If our church bought this property, the church/fellowship hall/kitchen/offices etc. would probably be located on the ground floor while our family would occupy the upstairs (some renovation would have to be undertaken to transform it into an apartment with a kitchen, living room etc.).
These are exciting times for our Mission! Please keep us in your prayers!! It would be nice to have a new series or two to post on this blog: From Mansion to Church and From Bedrooms to Apartment!
