This lovely building could very well be my house in another 6 or so months. Some work needs to be done to it (ie. attach a bathroom and a kitchen; add screening in upstairs and add a third bedroom) but here it is. It is located in the village of Sop Soi, just 10-15 minutes outside of Mae Hong Son. One of the great things about this house is that it has a well on the propertity and the landlord has agreed to hook up a pump to it. The house has electricity AND mobile phone reception (which is needed since the house currently doesn’t have a land line, and the phone line into the village isn’t actually working at the moment). Look at all the space underneath where I could park my vehicle (that I don’t yet have) or hang a hammock (a suggestion from a fellow student at my language school). I think it definitely has potential.
In all honesty, I wasn’t altogether thrilled when I first saw the picture, but it’s growing on me thanks to the Lord changing my attitude, heart and eyesight. There have been many indications that the Lord wants Faye and I (and Lilli – a new team member) to live in Sop Soi and this may just be our house. Pray!!
