*edited to add: I spoke with the realtor today and she said the owner has stated that she must be moved by Christmas ... so, it is looking really hopeful!! We're excited (and overwhelmed - we need to get packing!!) There is even a possibility that they might lower the rent a little bit because we'll be there long-term, at least 2.5 years. Which would be very nice, considering that rent is raised every six months to a year as a matter of course here in Chile! Thanks for continuing to pray!*
Our co-workers took a look at another house for us today. It sounds really nice, with the only downsides being that the patio is a bit smaller and it is not inside a "condominio." Other than that, there is the possibility of a 4th bedroom AND all the bedrooms are bigger than in the other house (which would definitely be great with 5 kiddos!) The master bedroom is a suite on the third floor! The kids think that sounds so cool. And, the price is the same.
Oh, I forgot the major downside. The owners of this house are also looking to move but don't have a definite place yet. Sigh. More details as they come along! Thanks for praying!
