We finally were able to close on our apartment in Santos this past Friday. The final document was supposed to be ready in about 2 weeks, but after over 5 weeks it finally came in. So we will be moving to Santos on November 10.
Also, we are praising God that we have a buyer for our house. God's timing may seem slow at times, but it is always perfect. And better yet, they are buying our house directly from us and not through a realtor, which will save us a good bit of money. In Brazil you can try to sell a house through as many realtors as you want to, and you can sell it yourself at the same time, unlike the US, where you typically use a realtor on an exclusive basis. Since we are using our own funds here for our ministry, saving the 6% realtor commission will really help.
