This second meeting with our IMB Candidate Consultant went very well.
We were asked a lot of questions based on the written materials we have submitted (life sketches, autobiographies, and Christian belief statements) medical questionnaires, etc.
We talked in detail about the rest of the process and about the job assignments we are contemplating.
We are choosing between two jobs: one is in Brazil and another is in South Asia . . . opposite sides of the world to be sure.
We will be doing much research in the next several days. Please keep us in your prayers as we are continuing to seek God.
Let me share a blessing: The friend I had lined up for childcare ended up needing to tend to her sick child. I called another dear friend of ours at about 8:00 a.m. She tweaked her plans for the entire day to stay with our children. It was a tremendous blessing, and our children had a wonderful day. We drove 2 1/2 hours both ways to a meeting that lasted 2 1/2 hours. She cared for our 4 children ages 7 and under for 7 1/2 hours. (It was very hard for me to not share our news with her. But we're close to being able to share this with everyone, and I'm pleased about that!) I'm thankful for dear friends who will sacrifice to help a friend. If you ever read this Tamara, thank you!
