Jacob and Nancy tiny home

Jacob and Nancy need our help to build their dream tiny home and move to Ontario.  Below is a bit of their story from them: "Dear Friends and Family, first of all we are so incredibly humbled by the kindness of Josh and his family to help us get our feet on the ground. We are equally grateful to the Morning Star Bible Camp board for letting us stay here at the camp while we build our tiny house. Our background is that we met in Japan and evacuated shortly afterwards from the Sendai 3/11 9.0 earthquake and nuclear disaster.

We were able to become debt free and have lived in our tiny slide-in camper on the back of our truck for four years now, which has helped us a lot. Praise the Lord! We are working together for Angus Aitken driving one of his Hotshot Delivery trucks and saving little by little as we work to build up our larger tiny house. It is the house we plan to live in the rest of our lives. We've attached pictures of our tiny house model concept. We cannot afford to buy land just yet, but we can build this house piece by piece as we hope to travel to be with Nancy's mother who is now 83 and lives on a small rural island in Ontario.

Our goal is to be able to spend some quality time with her on this side of Heaven. Just this morning, we heard that Nancy's sister had a terrible ATV accident and she and her husband are the caretakers for Nancy's mom. Please pray for her full recovery Godspeed. Her and her husband both have a lot of health complications as well, which is all the more incentive for us to move out there and help out. Being here in the Okanagan has helped us so much to build economically as there are several Habitat for Humanity's around. Working for Angus has also helped us find different companies for discounted building supplies. The siding and spray foam insulation is our next financial challenge in order to build up a strong shell for transportation. Thank you so much for your prayers and consideration. May God bless you~ in His love, Jacob + Nancy + JC
