House hunting (6)

This is the end of the chapter, we have found a house. It is the one in Pabu I posted about. The landlord has seen the recommendation letter from the mission and is happy to rent it to us. I am going to sign the rental agreement on 29th June, and we hope to move during the first week of August. We praise God for giving us this opportunity. The house is smaller than what we had been looking for initialy, but it will be easier to look for something bigger later, once we are settled in Guingamp.

Next stage is to find a school for Jean-Baptiste. There are two not to far. The first one in Guingamp, about 700m away, the other in Pabu, about 1km away. I’ll phone the Mairie on Monday to see what we’ve got to do.

I am always amazed by the gospel

What a support to our faith is this, that God the Father, the party offended by our sins, is so well pleased with the work of redemption! And what a comfort is this, that, seeing God’s love rests on Christ, as well pleased with us, we may gather that he is well pleased with us, if we be in Christ! For his love rests in a whole Christ, in Christ Mystical, as well as Christ natural, because he loves him and us with one love. Let us, therefore, embrace Christ, and in him God’s love, and build our faith safely on such a Saviour that is furnished with so high a commission.

See here, for our comfort, a sweet agreement of all three persons: the Father gives a commission to Christ; the Spirit furnishes and sanctifies to it, and Christ himself executes the office of a Mediator. Our redemption is founded upon the joint agreement of all three persons of the Trinity.

I work in an amazing shop called Costco where I do product demonstrations. Costco is the kind of shop where you can find all sorts of things. It is an american company so many products come directly from the States, and you will only find them there.

Amongst the products I noticed some time ago are two products that are actually made in Guingamp, the town where we plan to move. They are Madeleines, some sort of small cup cakes, and chocolate filled crepes. I find that very exciting, and never miss an opportunity to tell people about it.
