Prayer Requests

A while back we asked for prayer concerning the sell of our house. We need to sell our house before we can leave for South Africa. We have only lived in our home for a little over a year and because the housing market is so bad the house has gone down in value since we bought it.

We have some friends who would like to buy our house at the price of what we still owe on it, but their house needs to sell before they can do so. It would be so wonderful if they could buy our house so that we could avoid having to show it (which gives Jenny a nervous breakdown to think of having to keep the house show-ready with 4 children!)

Please pray that our friends can sell their house at the price they need to so that they can buy our house.

Also, we are starting the process of applying for our visas. We had some difficulty when applying for our visas the first time we went to South Africa (one such difficulty was that the embassy lost all of Madison's paperwork, including her passport). Please pray that everything goes smoothly and quickly.

Another request is for the South Africa Gala fundraiser our church is doing for us. So many people have put so much time and energy into this fundraiser. Please pray that everything will come together and that it will raise the money we need to go to South Africa. Please also pray that God would abundantly bless all that have freely given time, money, donations and energy to make this fundraiser an amazing evening.

Thank you, we can't even express how much we appreciate your prayers!
