An update on our journey. Well, we went over to the Spokane/Medical Lake last week and viewed three properties.
The first was a modern day apartment that was bigger than our current apartment but was not very handicap friendly so we had to pass.
The second was a much older charming home; however, we had to walk away before we even stepped inside. The steps were too narrow and too high for Dene. Don’t think I want to lug a wheelchair up those steps.
Finally, we stopped at a middle in the age range apartment that is just about perfect. It is big and we would be saving money. The landlord is great and friendly. We applied and we are just waiting for word that we get the place. She just needs one more bit of information and we will be approved. So thanking Jesus that we get in.
This apartment is in Medical Lake, WA, and ironically I had a run in with the police years ago. I was driving through town and had a tailgater. Thinking I was going to slow, I sped up a little and next thing I knew, lights were flashing as I was pulled over for speeding. Ugh! I paid the ticket after contesting it and went on with life. I just laugh it off and will never even go one mile over in that little town.
Now, we are interested in that little town after all these years. It was peaceful and quiet. On our last day there, we took some donuts and had breakfast on the beach. It was hard to leave; however, duties back here called us away.
We head back this week to explore and get to know the area that we hope to call home sweet home in just little over two weeks.
We are praying that the right doors will open up for this apartment, a new job for me, and even the right caretaker for Dene.
We are hoping to find the right church and if not, we can always plant one as God opens doors and provides.
Finally, it was a great trip and we look forward to moving in a couple of weeks.
So, does anyone know of any good churches in the Spokane area?
