OUR HOUSE IN OHIO, FALL 2009
This is where Coletta and I live. I took this picture today. When we arrived at Van Wert fourteen years ago, we asked the Lord to give us an old house with trees, on a quiet country road at the edge of town. We bought this home that fall in 1995. It is a block and a half from our old church building, three blocks from downtown on Main Street, across the street from the City's Police Station, Fire Department, and ambulance service! God has a wonderful sense of humor! Under the direction of Mr. Bill Keith, a former trustee of our church with many church members helping, this 115 year old Victorian was turned into an almost completely new Victorian! It seems like the Lord was saying, "Here's your (big) old house and your tree, but, I'm going to save you a lot of gas by putting you close to your church!" We are still only five blocks from our new church!
I'm Jim C. Burns, and that's something to think about!
