We are very excited that God has provided a home for us to rent when we get to Paraguay! One of the best features about the house is that it has a well. That might not seem like anything out of the ordinary to you, but down there sweet water is golden. Most underground water is deemed unfit for humans due to the high salt content. As a result, the majority of all homes collect rain water in cisterns.
This year, there has been a tremendous drought and people are having to pay to have water trucked in to fill their cisterns. Needless to say, we feel very blessed by this home with a well! I know it is because so many of you are praying specifically for our housing arrangements! Thank you!
With water being so precious, a green grass yard is rarely seen. Most yards are just dirt. Since my mom always had the greenest lawn in town, I think I am very glad that God led us to this rental. :)
The home itself has lots of quirks but I look forward to the challenge of decorating and making it home. It's always amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do for a place! I promise to post some pictures soon!
