We found a new home to buy and our current home sold on the first day of the listing with 6 offers, but it turned out, the home inspection for the one we were purchasing revealed numerous concerns, so we were legally allowed to cancel.

I have been praying for my daughter Angel Merici for a good job that will not make her forget God; also praying for her to get married to an educated, disciplined God fearing man with whom they can be joined in Holy matrimony. I thank St Joseph that on the fifth day of the novena she got a call from one of the places where she submitted her application. They have not taken her yet but we are very optimistic. We shall wait on the Lord His timing is the best. I know both my intentions will be answered and i will testify for the Lord.
