a prayer need

Friday, August 28, 2009

Last night, I talked with my mom, and discovered an urgent need for prayer.

My parents have been building a house, their last house, their home house. The pre-built house was delivered over a month ago, but the finishing process has resulted in a fiasco. They were told they would have a Certificate of Occupancy two weeks ago, then last week, then this week, so they gave their notice at their rental and hired movers to pack them up and get them out and into their new home.

Only as of last night, they STILL didn't have that C of O. Because the plumber didn't want to drive out to do his contracted work. Because of this, and that, and the other thing. My parents (and four of my siblings) are sleeping on the porch. The garage is packed with their stuff, and they've no place to put the contents of the third truck coming today unless...

Pete and I are leaving town today to go help load my sister's stuff up and move it down on Monday. But there is no place for anyone to sleep, or to put things. If we go, I won't be back until Monday, September 6th, since Piper and I will be staying up in VA to help as we can.

At this point, my parents really need to see God's hand moving on their behalf.
Please pray, if you will. They are so weary.

UPDATE: It appears that my parents will not be able to get their C of O until Tuesday at the earliest. Please pray. They don't have anywhere to go right now.

Oh, that's so hard!!! I hope they get it soon! We built a house on camp this spring for our maintenance man & his wife, and they had to wait a month or so for someone to come out & give us the certificate - they moved in anyway, since they had nowhere else to go. I'm proud of your family for doing things above-board, though.

Few things are more stressful than wondering where you are going to sleep. I will say a prayer for your family.
