We arrived in Redding, California in September 2017 for all of us to learn from Bethel and what God is doing here. Tim is also a full time student at BSSM.
The first half of our stay here has seen us camping for two months and, since January, moving around from house to house every few days... relying on people's beautiful generosity to host a family of 9!
Moving forward, for the second half of our time here, we'd really like to be somewhere permanent. It has taken all our energy, especially for Ruth, to move every few days and we're inviting you to help make a change possible!
Having a place to stay that sees us through until the end of our time here (end of May '18) would really transform our experience and what we are able to receive. It would be particularly transformative for Ruth and our 7 children: Faith, Miriam, Joseph, Jemimah, Thea, Judah and Tabitha who are all home educated.
For us, a place to stay would also mean:
- a place to learn for the kids
- a place to study for Tim
- security for Ruth and children when Tim is away on a mission trip in April
- a place to welcome others
$8000 is a realistic figure for renting a 3 or 4 bedroom house in Redding for three months.
3 x months rent @ $1200-$1500
3 x months utilities @ $500
1 x security deposit @ $2000
Thank you so much for your support and catching the vision for a place to stay!
