The wheels of progress after the fire are moving slowly. The removal of the ashes, twisted steel and concrete from our townhome complex is underway. The remains of our burned up car was picked up indignantly by a wicked looking claw and dropped in a huge dumpster.
Carol and I have moved into a small house until ours can be rebuilt. That process will take 18-24 months since there are 14 townhomes in our small association. We have a new “used” car to replace the one that was burned. Slowly we are adjusting to the new way we are living. The mountain of paper work involved with the insurance companies is overwhelming. The number of meetings with lawyers, insurance adjusters and the builder is time consuming. However, our good friends, like you, and the Lord’s presence are precious reminders that we are not alone. Then there is the shopping to replace clothes. Yes, winter is just around the corner and the light weight clothes that we had in our suitcase in June won’t be enough. To be honest I hate shopping but Carol does not.
On September 12, I will travel to Myanmar for a week of meetings with our new Burmese director. He is a breath of fresh air for our ministry there. His name is Benjamin and he has no last name (like most Burmese people). Please pray for him in this new role and for us as we train and nurture him. Carol will stay in Colorado Springs while I am gone. You may contact VisionTrust for our temporary address and updated phone numbers.
May the Lord bless you,
Ernie and Carol Taylor
