With 10 days left in Charlotte, we are trying our hardest to fit in appointments with everyone. Tomorrow, for instance, we have a 3:30 appointment at Starbucks, a 5 pm appointment at someone's house, and a 7 pm dinner at someone else's house! These meetings really have been a blessing to both of us. Our supporters and yet-potential supporters really are people I consider friends. These "meetings" have been fun in the social sense and also tremendously encouraging as we dream together about how to make a difference in the world for the sake of Christ.
Our other job, selling stuff, is fairly amusing. I never thought I would be so wrapped up in ebay or half.com! My dad handed over a lot of his stuff to be sold to make room for our stuff. And after seeing its success in internet sales, we've added our own treasures to the "to go" list on the internet. Here are some of our more random recent sales (still Dad's stuff):
- Vintage Olsen skinning knife $56
- Pantone color formula guide $10
- 8 Star Trek posters $48
- A particular book bought for $7 originally and sold yesterday for $202 to some man in France
My own stuff is not nearly that random or interesting. Mostly brand-name clothes that I don't think will be big yard sale hits. The yard sale, by the way, is scheduled for Saturday. Oh dear.
