Kane Update: Moving again... What?!

“I will sing of the LORD’s great love forever;
   with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known
through all generations.” Psalms 89:1
It’s been a few weeks since our last update and we have MUCH to share about God’s faithfulness in our lives. Some of you may not know that a few years ago with the help of my parents Ruth and I were able to purchase a house (just 8 min. away from Ruth’s parents). We’ve always had renters in the house and had hoped that this house would be a ‘home base’ for us when on furlough. Since being back our plan was to stay with Ruth’s parents until next year when the lease agreement was over with our current (Christian) renters. But.... instead we have epic news! About 10 days ago our renters called us and said, “We know you have plans to move into your house next summer and it would also be at that time that we would need to find another place and with our home business doing well, we’ve decided to move somewhere else and want you to move into your house while we continue to pay our lease agreement until next summer.” Can you believe it?! Isn’t God amazing! So, we now have plans to move into our house in just a few weeks. And seeing as how God has continued to close every door opportunity with  ‘full time’ work. I’m excited to paint the interior, refinish the floors, and work on cutting/stacking 10 cords of wood before moving in. Please continue to pray for ‘full time’ work opportunities for me. I’m still waiting to hear back from a construction job, microchip job, and prison correction officer job, as well as continuing to look for anything else.
On other news this is our LAST month that will be receiving financial support through NTM. Any support sent to NTM for us after this month will be returned. If you would like to continue supporting us through the end of the year please send personal checks to our house address. We have continued to be amazed with God’s faithfulness in our lives and continue to look to Him to provide for our basic needs of utilities, gas, food etc. 

We love you guy’s and are thankful for you.

At least God gave you lots of practice improving houses over in Indo... At least this one won't have a huge well to have to cover up.

Still praying for a job for you, but I look forward to seeing the LAST Kane home tour for a long time....
