Hello from Dallas, TX!
We wanted to send a quick update of our home search and what our next steps will be. After looking for homes in all available areas in Dallas and Dallas suburbs, we have decided that we need to rent a small apartment while we look for a better option. We were hit hard with the reality that housing in Dallas costs a lot more than housing in Guatemala. We are hoping that over the next few months that something will come up in our price range.
In Texas there is a huge issue with foundations cracking when it gets hot in the summer time, creating cracks all over the house. Residents of Dallas are supposed to water their foundations every day during the summer to prevent this. We looked at several houses that were visibly sagging into the earth because part of the foundation had cracked and was drifting. Some things you just can’t understand until you see it. Finding a home without these cracks has proven to be very difficult, especially in older houses. Please be in prayer that we can find an older house in our price range without major structural damage.
So having said all that, we plan to move to Dallas within the next few weeks. This is a pretty stressful time for us and we could use prayer for our spiritual, emotional and physical health. We are feeling a lot like vagabonds right now and just want to get settled and into our full-time ministry soon. Thank you for walking through this with us!
