Do you ever get that feeling in the pit of your stomach as you look at a calendar and see the deadline and as you assess your current situation you realize all you have to do with the fewer days that remain on the calendar till you are at your goal/deadline?
Yeah… that’s where we are.
Our goal is to be in South Africa in October and the “to do” list only gets bigger each day as we earnestly try to check the box next to as many as we can.
One of our “to dos” is to sell our home. We have had it on the market for over 3 weeks now and we hope that we can get a contract on it soon. The sooner we get it sold, the more secure we will feel having a place ready to bring our baby girl home – who is due in August.
Right now, Cassie is looking up prices for home stuff (pots/pans, dishes, sheets, etc.) so we can make a budget to somewhat furnish a home in South Africa.
The last time I had to furnish a home from scratch, was when I took my first position at a church in Sikeston, MO in 1999. I didn’t have a 2 year-old and a newborn then! All I needed then was a bed, a burnt-orange corduroy couch and my parents console tv. This is a whole nother level!
Thank you to those who have been faithfully praying for us. We are extremely grateful. Here are a couple of things to keep you focussed as you pray for the Robinsons:
- Quick sell of our home
- Healthy pregnancy (Due 08/25)
- Smooth Visa Approval
- Acquisition of all we need in SA (home, car, stuff 🙂
