more time to discuss

The church in OH has told us they need more time to discuss the job. So, now we are still waiting to find out or not. We hope to let you know by next week what the answer is. Please continue to pray for the elders and us and the decision. Thanks

another deadline

Tonight the church in OH has a meeting (well the elders do) about the youth minister. So, our waiting to hear about whether or not we will continue the process could be nearing an end. If you read this tonight (Tuesday), please say a prayer about the decision and us. Thanks

It has been almost 7 months since I found out I needed to start looking for a new ministry. I've worked 3 months of that at the church, had 2 months to stay at home and am going on my 2nd month of working two part time jobs. Over these months I have been learning a lot about myself and my God. I wish I had the time now to share what I've learned, but I have to get up tomorrow at 3am.

I wanted to update and let those who read this (if any) that I should hear this week about the church I went to interview with last week. We would love to be able to work at this church, but we are trusting God's guidance and know He will take us to the right place (whether here or somewhere else).

silent no more

to anyone who has been waiting for some updates...

It has been a while since I have updated. This is mostly due to the fact that I feel like I am busier than ever. I am still employed by Target and my dentist friend. I usually work between 40 and 45 hours a week (some weeks more) - not too much more than when I was in ministry. Yet, it feels very different. Either 3 or 4 days a week I get to wake up at 3am and will work from 4 til 5pm (1/2 at each job). So I am usually pretty tired at the end of the day.

Some news on the ministry front, thankfully. This weekend we are going to a church for an interview. It will be a long weekend, but it will be well worth it. We are excited about the opportunity that this congregation brings. The position is for ms/hs and young adults. Please be praying for our trip and the interview.

We are praying that if this is it, both sides will have a peace about the decision.

(I hope the next post will be sooner than 1 month :))
