We had our interview today at the apartment complex in Addison. We felt like it went pretty well. The manager has never had a Cares Team before so most of the interview was explaining what we will do and what it will look like. Troy came with us to guide our time and make sure some of the logistic questions were covered. After we were finished, Troy stayed to "seal" the deal and work out more of the details. He called us this afternoon to confirm that we were in!
The property is still under construction. Only one of the buildings is even functional. The next available 2 bedroom apartment is August 11. We'll do a piece-move all that week in the evenings. They are expecting us to do one event before the end of the month which will be no problem. We will probably take a lot of time to introduce ourselves to the current residents...all 29 of them...and prepare for a full month in September.
We will soon call 15777 Quorum home for at least 18 months...but hopefully longer. We would apreciate your prayers as we prepare our hearts for what the Lord will do during this time. Pray for our relationship with the manager and staff as we begin this process. Since the manager has never had a team before and we've never been a team before, there are a lot of unknowns. Pray that communication will be clear.
We are SO excited to develop relationships with the residents and be able to impact their lives on an eternal level.
