Kelly and I are excited to let you know that I have accepted an appointment to the Foreign Service as a Construction Engineer. Training begins September 26th in DC. From the information we have now, we will be in DC for up to (2) years and then posted internationally off and on from that point forward.
Please join Kelly and me in prayer support over the next several weeks as we try and figure out how to pull anchor and start this adventure. Even though God’s timing is perfect, my understanding of it hardly is. So specifically, please ask for patience as we try to find a buyer/renter for our house in the next 30 days, a new (affordable) home in D.C., buyer for my truck, financial wisdom in planning the transition to a state/district with income taxes (and no right to carry), patience for Malosi as she prepares for a life on the move, and a constant focus on honoring Jesus in all we do.
As St. Augustine, the Bishop of Hippo, explained it, if I put my face up against a stained-glass window, all I would be able to see is jagged edges and broken glass. The farther away from that window I get, the more I would see that it was spectacular. Jagged edges are all we see now, but we know the big picture is truly spectacular.
(Romans 11:36). “For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.”
