Invitation: House Facelift Party @ The Mitchells July 25!

A family we know needs some help, and I am asking you to consider pitching in.  The family is us - the Mitchells! 

We need your help to sell our house.   We are having a Facelift Party for our house and you are invited!

As you know, God has called us to Scotland this fall.  I'll be starting three years of full time study and we'll be joining the mission of Jesus over there and reconnecting with Agnes' family.  And God has told us to sell our house as one part of financing this new calling.  It's been on the market three weeks, lots of showings, and the common feedback is "too much work."  The truth is, our house is older, it's very "lived in", and you may be aware, while I try, I am not much of a handyman.  lol.

Our realtor told us we need to drop the price and give the house a facelift. 

We are evaluating the price, and praying and trusting God that the house could sell any day.  And we are trying to do our part to make our house attractive to a buyer

If you can, will you help us?

Saturday July 25, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm is our House Facelift Party.  If you want to help and you can paint, haul junk to the dump, clean, pack, fill cracks,  or just do whatever needs done, you are invited!  Come for an hour or come all day.   Come at lunch and we'll make sure you're fed!

You don't need to RSVP but if you could that would help us with planning for that day.

We will have a list of jobs - you can pick ones that suit you.  If you want to see the list in advance, let us know, or if you want to come on a different day to help out - that would be amazing too.

It's humbling to ask.  But we are family and so we're not ashamed to just let you know we have this big need we really can't take care of by ourselves.    We need to ask for your help to follow Jesus where he's taking us.  No pressure, but if you are able to help, that would be amazing!

Pray for us, as we pray for you.

With our love,

David, Agnes, Acacia, Elijah, Andrew and Levi

PS. God's provision for us has been amazing so far - getting accepted in seminary just in time, receiving a house in Scotland for a fraction of normal rent, and we are trusting he has this in his hands too.  Thanks for believing God with us on this journey.
