Found out yesterday that the 2nd offer on the small house was rejected with no counter offer. They want full asking price. I would have no problem with that but I do not have enough for their full asking price and it is $3,000 more than the houses like it in that area are selling for.
My realitor took me and my best over to the big house to see if it is a possible. I walked in and looked around and discovered what had happened. The previous owners had a Pot growing room and over loaded the electrical and that caused an electrical fire which burned up the entire room and some electricl wires above the room. My best friend owns 2 houses already that he rents out and he was amazed at this house. I told the realitor, Dave, to put in full asking price and $511 more. There was already 9 bids put in and the house has only been up for sale for 1 week.
I told my realitor and my best friend that IF God wants me to have it than I will get it. This is all I can bid because that is all I have.
Last night I went to sleep and one of my dreams God was asking me if the house was big enough to start a Church in Detroit. I said it definitely was big enough and the 3 rooms in the basement could be where the children have Sunday School while the adults were upstairs. There is also a large fenced in area for them to play. The neighbor is nice and I have met several neighbors already.
So I told God.....if you want me to start a church in that home ....I will do so. But first I would need the house or any place you want me to start a church.
Then He asked me about Jackie Pullinger and would I like a large empty brick church and turn it into a Mission for the homeless to be taken care of and have church too? I told Him that if you provide me the means to do so then I would definitely do as you want. And when it is raining out or too cold out the people do not have to leave but can stay indoors and help us clean the place. Sunday morning they can all rolls up their bedding to the side of the rooms and we can worship God together with all that come in!
The Devil had to get in their and said what about the orphanage that you never did. I said to him....you forgot to use the word, "Yet".....God has yet to send, supply, and instruct. Obviously he knows as much as I know that does not plant a seed without needing the faith built and then He will cause His Will to be done for His Glory....and God does not share His glory.
So I told the Lord.....I will need Lots of furniture and chairs and kitchen stuff so we can feed the people after the service....do a pot luck and the church provide what we can so that the children have a good meal and do not go hungry. Figure we can provide breakfast for the kids and a good pot luck Lunch after the service so the kids get two meals and the adults one. And then the left overs can go home with the kids! Too many kids in the Detroit area do not have any food when school is out.
So today....I finish up my semester final papers for Seminary! I have the Fall seminary to do and then I will have everything I need to graduate from Seminary in May, 2015!!!! In the Spiring of 2015 I am taking two teaching classes (God willing) so I can start teaching online to help bring in more more. Plus I want to volunteer at the University of India and teach a class online for free for their seminary that if free to those that cannot pay.
For all of you that started reading my blog when I was driving a Semi Truck around the nation wanting to go to Seminary.....then I came down with Cancer and all the other medical problems.....Chemo.....here I am ....53 years old and I will graduate Seminary (God willing) in May, 2015!!!! I only need 2 more classes!!! God is definitely great!!! He has made sure I had the money every month to keep this ministry up online and help me take care of all my bills!!
Today.....I wait to see if this is the house that I will move in, fix it up, and open a church in!!! I have laid it at God's feet and will do as He instructs and provides! I love this life with God!!
