A strange phenomina has been happening in the last few years. It seems when there is an empty church; it gets bought and used for someone's home. It isn't just the old churches getting bought; however, it is school buildings, store fronts, post offices and any empty building that is in good enough shape to live in. I can't tell this you for sure but this could be happening; because of the lack of affordable housing, it could be nostalgia, it could be a fad, or it could be for some other reason, but when a church gets bought and is used for something other than worship, it does present a situation for that community and for the farm communities near that village. There are choices of course. People can drive 20 to 30 miles to go to church, beg a ride, or we can begin to search for other buildings such as barns, storefronts, or warehouses. We also can worship in our own homes, gathering together along with our fellowship.

Why this is happening; I am not sure, as I have said, but there is a serious; serious housing shortage around here now and I do not blame people for buying old churches to live in. It is an interesting shift if events and I guess we need to be prepared for just about anything, anymore. One of the reasons there is a housing shortage is because McCook, Nebraska tore down all their old houses without building new houses. In the McCook Gazette I read that they tore down so many old houses over the years, (McCook Gazette)that they must build 300 new houses for the families who have been left without homes, especially since they esculated their tear down agenda over the last two years. Actually the number of houses they now need to build is nearing the 400 mark at least since they are evicting a whole trailer court of low income, and low middle income people who either must move their trailers, (some can't afford to), or find other rentals. There are no rentals by the way! They plan to build fifty houses in place of the trailers. I do not know how expensive these houses will be, if they will be rentals or if people will have to buy them, and how many bedrooms they will have. I do know that at least a hundred more families will be without homes because they have been evicted. Please share this, and take action.

I would ask that you pray about the housing shortage, the people left without homes, the lack of churches, and how we should handle the situation. God Bless everyone! Until next time! Have a happy fourth of July! Donna

This might be the reason so many pets are also being euthanized! It is one reason anyway; besides the fact that now pet owners are only allowed to have three pets, and besides the fact that the vets are more eager to euthanize than to spay and neuter! And besides the fact that they do not educate and really encourage people to spay and neuter!
