A House Moves in Indianapolis

July 14, 2010, Indianapolis—The Indianapolis Triangle house formerly located at 1435 Montcalm Street was moved to its new location at 1450 Rembrandt Street.

A campus division women's household lived in the house since last fall. They moved in after two years of major renovations performed largely by visiting Action teams. In late 2009, a commercial developer offered to buy the property as part of an initiative to build student housing near the IUPUI campus. After negotiations with the People of Praise, the developer agreed to cover the cost of relocating the house about a block away, across the street from Walt and Pam Seale's home. The women's household is planning to move back into their home—with a new address and a new basement—before the school year begins.

    Oh yeah and it was our anniversary! What a great present from the Lord! Thank you Mike Coney, you made it happen.

    "Our house in the middle of the street"...

    Very cool indeed!

  4. Jim says:

    We used to sing this song "in the old days" -
    "The move is on, my Lord, the move is on."

    Little did we know...
    Glory to God!

    Great video! It was good to hear how the move brought the neighbors together.

  6. CJ Newburn says:

    Great video production! Kudos for that.

    This brings a whole new meaning to being a community on the move.

  7. John Broxup says:

    None of us two years ago on the first trip could ever have thought this possible. We've heard about faith moving mountains, now it moves houses.

  8. Linda Lee Finke says:

    Good for you guys! When I first read the headline, I naturally thought that you meant that you changed houses. Whoa! I can't believe you got the company to move the house for you.

    And I am sure that it is a blessing, because it had to make the POP presence more noticeable!

    God can sure work in strange ways.

    May God Bless you in your endeavors.
