There were a few unknowns I was worried about with the decision to join the Foreign Service in 30 days. Most of them revolved around the large assets (or liabilities if you’re a Dave Ramsey fan) related to the vehicles/house and where to live affordably in D.C. God reminded us of his plan and basically took care of each in a way that can only honor him.
Tangible examples of God’s blessings:
Truck sold for cash in one week.
House rented after first showing at offer price.
The other small things like gap health insurance, work transitions, and State Department paper work have been unfolding smoothly (other than my travel orders, where are they!?!) as smaller reminders that I’m really not steering this ship and my feeble attempts at control are quite humorous to the mastermind behind all this.
We are excited, honored, nervous, joyful, fearful, and humbled by the opportunity to serve the greatest country on earth and be a constant witness to many of his unyielding grace in a fallen world.
Thanks to all for the prayer support.
