We Own One Home!

As many of you know, we purchased home in Gresham, OR about 3 years ago. It was a purchase we should not have made and only lived there 6 months. Four of the those months the house was for sale. We moved back to Vancouver to the house we had that never sold. And thank God it didn't. But over the past 3 years we had people leasing the property but they up and moved out without telling us or paying money owed to us in September of 2008. Since then we've had the house on the market, been trying to communicate with the bank and went through a flood in the basement during the cold snap when a pipe burst.

Well, God has answered our prayers and it is a true miracle that in this market and economy that we SOLD THE HOUSE!!!!! We were able to get approved for a short sale and as of yesterday, we are no longer responsible for that house. We are so blessed and eternally grateful to all our friends who have prayed with us and helped us deal with this whole mess. And for those of you that never saw the home, I thought I'd post a few pictures. Yes, it is a lovely home, but when it's done out of God's will, it's not so lovely! I pray the new owners will be very happy there.

Nice big back yard.
