Playing some catch-up here…
On Saturday, September 5, 2015, we moved out of New York City. It seems like a move backwards, but it is to our advantage at this point. We are booked nearly solid from now until the end of March, 2016 with deputation meetings. We are hoping to be at or close to 100% by that time, but we won’t be home between now and then. It doesn’t make financial sense to pay $1400 per month on an apartment which will sit empty.
An opportunity came up for us to put everything into storage and pay much less on a furnished apartment in Mountainville, NY. It is owned by a church who is hoping to use their second property as a conference center and to be a blessing to missionaries. So we are basically just paying utilities on this apartment, to give us a place to call home should it be needed before deputation is finished. It also allows us to apartment shop in the Bronx next spring without being tied to a lease.
Here are some shots of the process moving out of Brooklyn. I can’t wait until the day that I get to post pictures of moving in to the Bronx – into an apartment which I hope to call “home” for MANY years to come!
