Saying Good-bye to This Old House

We wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Kijowski’s.  After going to dinner and a movie two days after Christmas, we came home to a broken window, four missing computers and three missing guitars.  Computers can be replaced, but unfortunately Mike jr’s two hand-made guitars that he uses for worship are irreplaceable.  Pray with us for a miraculous return of the guitars and for those who took them to turn from evil and to know the Lord.

The house is a wreck as we go through 25+ years of stuff we have accumulated throughout our time living on Lawndale Avenue in the Chicago neighborhood of La Villita.  There seems to be no end to the boxes and bags we have stored in every corner and closet.  We wonder how we are ever going to get our house ready for the new owners and move to a place that is one third of the size of where we are now?  Elizabeth advised that perhaps we shouldn’t live in any house more than three years so packing won’t be a seemingly endless project.

The living room was full of laughter as we looked through beautiful artwork from years gone by when our adult kids were young.  It brought back many memories of old friends and school projects.

So when are we moving? Well, we passed the termite inspection and handed in all of the necessary paperwork, but we are still waiting for the bank to set a final closing date. Please pray this would happen soon since Mike is hoping to move to Romania in early February.

We want to thank all of you who have prayed and given so generously to our support.  We have raised $45,000 of the $68,000 needed for Romania.
