God Provides and gives the Desires of our hearts

By The Parkes Family

It has been a long journey for us as a family having given up a home nearly 5 years ago and moving to the other side of the world.  4 1/2 years ago it was prophesied over us that things were going to happen quickly.  We thought it would have to do with our Permanent Residency status, but it was not!

For the last couple of years we have been praying for settlement in Canada and a home, asking God for nothing grand …. just a home.  After recently receiving our permanent residency, less than 2 months ago, we went out last Saturday with a real estate agent just to look at what was on the market and landed up putting an offer on a house!

4 hours later we were told that the owners had accepted our offer and the house was only on the market for 3 days.  We had viewed a few houses and had set our minds on something less grand in view of the market and current housing prices, BUT GOD HAD SOMETHING BETTER for us.  God did not just provide our needs but also the desires of our hearts.

We give God all the glory and look forward to setting our roots in Canada by moving into our own home on February 1, 2019.
