On our way to York

20110918-100835.jpg
After a fabulous breakfast Ed puts a few strokes of air into his tyres before we head off for Ripon and then York. After a few miles we stretched our muscles and prayed and turned our bikes towards the ascent of Greenhow hill. We’re half way up now and a few layers have been removed. The spectre of Stump Cross is ahead. Keep donating.

Arrived in Burnsall

Arrived in Burnsall wet cold and weary. The rain came down in torrents for the last 12 miles or so which made the last few hills seem very long. The cottage we are staying at is very comfortable. The heating is on, loads of hot water. Showers, bath, dry clothes – they all contribute to the revival of our spirits.
Earlier today as we reached the top of the long incline out of Settle the sun caught the distant hills. It’s moments like that that make the climb worthwhile.

Volunteers help remove an old shed

It’s been an exciting summer for all at Restore. After the purchase of our first property back in May we were delighted with the response of so many people in helping us to get the property ready for tenants moving in. After several weeks of hard work, gardening, decorating and cleaning we opened our doors to our very first tenant in July. Since then we  two more tenants have moved in, and so far all three are doing well. Praise God!

The hard work doesn’t stop there, though. We continue to seek our fourth and final tenant and have already begun the process of searching for our second property. We hope to open it by the end of the year.

Please continue to pray with us as we see God do some amazing things at the start of this venture.
