first i want to thank all of my friends here who have been praying for my family and i…and now i would like to tell you what happened today. as many of you are aware we have been searching for a new home,however as soon as the landlords here find out that i have 5 kids they inform me that i have too 'any kids for them to rent to me. well the kids and i went to the park today just to enjoy the fresh air.the place was empty,not a sole in sight,so we gathered around a picnic table in a little pavillion right in the center to pray before enjoying the sights and toys.we went around the table one at a time praying for family,friends,people in our community,my health,and pleading despretely for god to lead us to whatever home he saw fit for us.when we finished our amens we released hands and opened our eyes only to find that an older gentleman had joined us, and with tears rolling down both of his cheecks he said "please let me help you.i dont mean to intrude but as i was walking past your family god spoke to me.he told me to be silent and listen to your prayers.hes never spoken to me before so i listened…please follow me." he led us to a beautiful,BEAUTIFUL home directley across the street.he and his wife had just decided this morning to sell it on land contract and had an appointment with a realitor this evening to list it.he left me and the kids to look around inside.we thought he would be waiting outside when we finished,but he was nowhere to be found.we hadnt even gotten his last name,let alone his phone number,so with broken hearts we walked back across the street to the park.we couldnt understand why he had allowed us the opprotunity to see the place and then just disapeared.to our amazement he came to the park to find us…he had only left us there to go get his wife.they offered us an AMAZING deal.$51,000 dollar total package-$5,000 down and $625 a month($500 for the house payment and$125for property taxes and insurance) the house sits right down town in a darling little town with a park,a campgroud ,and a lake right across the street.it has 5bdrms., 2bthrms.,a large kitchen and livingroom,a den and an enclosed porch that wraps around the entire house.i know its worth at least 3 times the amount that he wants to sell it to us for and its definately affordable for us!! the only problem is when we left my ex-husband we depleated almost all of my savings and i was just starting to rebuid it.this couple offered me such a wonderful deal that i couldnt find it in myself to ask him to lower the down payment.i just told him that i love the place,took down his number and told him i wolud call him by friday.i know that god sent him to us for a reason,he told me so himself…PLEASE friends and family of mine her at dc pray for my family that we may be able to come up with the rest of the down payment?!?i know that where theres a will theres a way-ive got the will,please pray for me that god will show me the way?!?!?
