update about furniture (& surprising postage rates)

IMG_0415Tomorrow night at 8pm Orlando time is Saturday morning and our dear friends and soon-to-be coworkers, James & Jane (above), are renting a truck and picking up the furniture that’s been donated to our family. They are the volunteers on the ground we’ve needed to make this happen and we’re so grateful.

And, if you can believe it, there’s a bit of room in Cru’s office building in which we can store the furniture!

This is little in the realm of everything, but would you pray that James and Jane would be able take pictures of some of the items?

As a woman, I’m already dreaming about how we can make our new place homey for our family and welcoming to the new friends we hope to have over. I’d be lying if I didn’t wonder what kind of decorating taste this sweet older man who passed away had. Now you’re wanting to see pictures, too, aren’t you?

In other news, we’re still evaluating the best way to set up home over Down Under. (Say that 3 times fast.) I just went online to gauge much it’d be to send a box of our things via the post office, if we needed to do that. Wowza. Can’t tell if there’s a non-priority mail option like, say, a way to ship via a slow boat to China. It is exciting, though, to see how God’s provided for our family and we’re expectant to see how it all works out.
