Moving Update

We are still trying to sell our house down state. In the mean time, we're going to rent it out to some friends.
Last week, we spent the week looking at houses and deciding on one. We called our realtor up there Friday morning and told him we were ready to make an offer on a house. We are eligable for another mortgage because Corey works so far away from where he lives. It also helps that we don't have a lot of (monthly) debt.
We set up a time to go sign papers, and shortly after getting off the phone, our realtor calls back and says a house just came up on the MLS that morning that we need to take a look at.
To make a long story short, the house we looked at that morning for the first time is the house we ended up making an offer on. God works in funny ways! It's a forclosure, so a great deal! So similar to our house it's crazy, but a lot newer(built in '94 and remodeling done last year) with a full basement that was in the process of being finished.
There's still a few loose ends, but I'm hoping God will figure those out and we'll be able to get moved up there soon! It's rather difficult to serve a community when you live 2 1/2 hours away!
