So, we've joined the masses of the unemployed.
Yep, LAID OFF.
(but let us not forget to thank Jesus for unemployment - thank you, Jesus!)
Ah, yes, things have gotten pretty interesting around here lately. God is forever full of surprises!
And since bad things seem to happen in threes, the very same day both of our cars decided to conk out. Then the baby got croup, and it was off to the ER - again.
But, things are settling down now. We still have one car that works pretty well. Baby is all better. And we are no longer drowning in the paperwork that ensued post lay-off.
So what now?
The really strange thing in all this, and a very unexpected turn of events amidst all the mayhem, was receiving some great news from a missions organization we've been corresponding with for a year now. I mentioned before that we really like OM (Operation Mobilization), but we didn't think that there would be a place for us with them, since they currently do not work in the area of Argentina we feel called to.
BUT, amidst all the recent craziness, we received an unexpected email response from them that their team in Argentina is actually happy to expand their mission work into Patagonia, sooner rather than later!
So I think we've found a potential missions organization and will be applying with them. :)
If it all works out [which remains to be seen, of course - always trusting in the Lord], we would go to a city in Argentina where they currently have a team, invest 6 months to one year in evangelism and training, and then be free to move to Patagonia and begin a team ministry there!
Super cool news.It's almost twilight zoney.
And, hey, what better time to make the Big Move to Missions than now??
