Homeless No More!

We now have an Apartment in Rogers Park, Chicago in a very interesting neighborhood. A Jewish Community intersecting with an Arabic Community near little India with East Africans sprinkle all around.
         We had just about rented another apartment but it was a bit higher rent and we discovered later that it was not in the safest area.
About this time a Rwandan friend of ours who was working for a realtor management company called and said she found us a three beds and two-bath large apartment in Rogers Park. Dave went and the next day to view the first floor apartment.
One of the things I had been praying about was our neighbors. Even the best apartment if you have neighbor problems your home can be a miserable place. As soon as Dave arrived he saw someone we knew. Church planters working with primarily Jewish and Turks occupy the two units above us.
What a small world! When Dave called to share this with me I was again reminded that God works every little detail out…beyond our expectations. I was just praying for friendly neighbors that would not be offended by us having lots of visitors and ministry out our home.
So God gives us an experienced Church Planters that has been in Rogers Park for years as our neighbor.
I just saw the place last night for the first time. I love it and I am so excited to turn this place into our home and a place of comfort and hope for all of those that God has planned for us to intersect with!
Thank you to all of you who have joined us in prayer and have sacrificed so that we can answer this call to Chicago.

         P.S I am going to blog how I turn this place we’re living into a home with all the “picking “ and garage finds.  So stay tuned!Here are some before pictures.
