    A Few Related Requests

    Post  Reed Benson on January 11th 2018, 10:04 pm

    I'd appreciate prayers for my family now because it's going to get bigger. My wife is almost 11 weeks pregnant with our first child, which is due this summer. This is very important to her because her family has been pushing her to get married and have a baby for years, going back to before we met. (It's an unfortunate paradigm in Chinese society that women are wasting their lives if they don't have kids.)

    So pray for a healthy pregnancy and all that, but also...we really need to move. Our apartment is not big enough for three people. We can probably get by for a few months when the baby is nursing and needs to be close all the time, but as he/she gets older, space will be a necessity. Also, I need more money to support the child, but to get more money, I need more classes, and to get more classes, I need to live closer than 1.5 hours from my school.

    THE PROBLEM: We don't have a title for our apartment. No one in our complex does. Long story. The people have been petitioning the local government to get them, but it seems to be fruitless at the moment. Without the title, I don't think we can sell the place.

    My boss has mentioned possibly paying for us to move closer so he can give me more classes. I'm afraid to press him on that because I don't feel like I deserve it, but it's a lovely dream.

    So pray that God's will would be done for and through our family, whatever it may mean.
