A few days ago, before heading out to go to church, I noticed some spots on our wall by the curtains. So when I looked closer and looked behind the curtains, guess what i found? Mold. Ew!
Since I was running late, I ran out the door and went to church. Meanwhile, Christina began investing the rest of our house and discovered that we had mold all over our house wherever there were curtains by the windows.
We had been praying about moving for a while, so it seemed like this was the perfect opportunity. So I contacted our landlord, and she came down right away, while Christina was home and I was at church, and she looked at the mold. Immediately, she began blaming us because we had the humidifier going and we were drying our laundry in the living room. Her solution? Just open the windows.
Great solution, eh?
Anyway, when I came home, I looked at all the mold, and Christina told me just how dangerous and harmful it was to our daughter, so I immediately went up to our landlord and demanded that she either clean the mold or we’re leaving. She chose the latter. She told me, “Sure then leave.” Upon asking her what she’s going to do about renting out our place, she replied, “That’s not your problem, it’s mine.” (I know her response sounded a bit harsh, but it wasn’t actually that bad. She understood we had to take care of our daughter).
So that night, I went to Dongdaemoon and looked at a few places. We thought, if we moved a bit out of central Seoul, we could get more space for a cheaper place. No luck. I didn’t like the places I saw. So while I was driving home, I was praying about this whole situation and then all of a sudden, God placed an impression on my heart to go look at Bogwang-dong (a location that is central Seoul and close to church). So I did.
When I got there, it was 8:40 pm and only one real estate agent was open. I parked and when I tried to go in, it was locked. So I phoned the place and one of the real estate agents answered and told me that he would be there in 10 minutes. When I told him what I wanted, he told me he knew of a couple of places. So when he came, we went to this one apartment in Bogwang-dong, and right when we entered it, I knew that this was the place.
The next day, I brought Christina to the place, and she agreed.
So we’re moving! We’re moving next Tuesday!!
Wow, what a testimony to God’s providence and his perfect will.
