Our blood pressure rose as we sifted through all of our things to determine what should be thrown away, given away, sold, kept in storage or taken with us overseas! After hours of sorting, packing and shuffling boxes and furniture around we have things organized for the move to Ohio and later to Italy. Thanks to friends for storing things for us in the process!

Then our focus turned to our condo where we and others did a lot of painting to give it a face lift…

Thanks to our friends who sweated through it with us! They put in hours of hard work to help us freshen up our place in preparation for selling it!

My parents even traveled from Ohio to help do the deep cleaning and touch up painting! Thanks Mom and Dad!

It wasn’t always glamorous but we got the job done and couldn’t have done it without you all! Here are some “after” pictures!

Now we are just awaiting the day we can cry tears of joy (and some sad ones) when God brings the right buyer for the place that has been our home for the last 5 years! Please pray with us to this end!
