Last week we applied for a rental house. We’ve had quite an adventure searching all over Fort Collins for a place to live. The process has exhausted both Liz and me. However, we have gotten time in the car with friends (thanks to Braden & Christy, Erika, and Debbie), time to meet new people (Kenny, Mike, Diana, etc.), and time to explore our new city of residence! Personally, I feel much more acquainted with Fort Collins and am glad to have explored. 🙂

So, back to the application. We submitted our application last Tuesday. We asked the property company if there was anything we could do to expedite the application process. We wanted to move in this past Friday so we could set up over the weekend in order to prepare for our evangelism push which started yesterday (Tuesday Aug 17th 2010). They gave us a handful of tasks which we dutifully completed to prepare our application for speedy transit through the review system.

On Wednesday I called to update some of our application info. On Thursday we waited, hoping to hear back. On Friday at 2pm I called to check in. I was told the agent who manages our rental had already left for the day. Bummer.

Over the weekend Braden and Christy (my brother and sister-in-law who helped us move out here and then drove up to Washington state to visit her family) swung back through. We spent Saturday and Sunday enjoying them and hoping for news about the rental on Monday.

On Monday morning I called and left a message with our agent. Two hours later she called me to ask when we wanted to move in!!! (Apparently she thought she left a message last week for us with the same question – Arrgghh) We called our friends and commenced moving in on Monday afternoon and have spent the last two days organizing and settling in to our new home.

Thank you all for praying with us! This home has all the features we’ve been asking God to provide AND it was in our price range 🙂

Want to see some pictures? (and the view from the back?)

Blessings!

p.s. We’ll probably have some better pictures up soon. Please keep praying with us for jobs! Liz had an interview last Tuesday which went well but we won’t know until next week whether she gets the job. Pray for favor with the employers!

We made it!

Well, the drive from Chicago to Colorado was a long one, with a long truck, in a long caravan. (One uhaul with one trailer with 3 other cars.) We arrived in Fort Collins on Friday night after two days of … Continue reading

Well, the drive from Chicago to Colorado was a long one, with a long truck, in a long caravan. (One uhaul with one trailer with 3 other cars.) We arrived in Fort Collins on Friday night after two days of travel. My brother, Braden, and his wife, Christy, joined us for traveling and the move. Since arriving last Friday we’ve spent most of our waking hours searching for housing while using our team leaders’ house as a basecamp. Braden and Christy helped us tremendously but we’re still looking for a house in Fort Collins. We’d love continued prayer support as we investigate housing and jobs 🙂

Blessings,

Daniel

p.s. We had an awesome prayer time this morning with our team. I love serving with people who want to minister out of the presence of God! God has great plans for this city!

p.p.s. A couple pictures:
