Well currently my license is with Weichert Referrals and I am back in foodservice. I am working the overnight shift six nights a week in the deli dept. of a very upscale supermarket. It pays the bills but those of you who know me know that is not where my heart is which is why I have just mailed off the application for my wife Eileen and myself to become fulltime missionaries at Childrens Bible Fellowship of New York.
I have inserted the link and hope you will check it out it is an amazing place. UI had been famuiliar with them because I have done some volunteer work with their urban ministry team (street preacing in the Bronx) but when I toured the camps I was overtaken. The work they do with disadvantaged youth and especially with the developmentally and physically chalenged youth and adults is simply awesome.
I always say that God talks to us but that most of us are too thick too listen, well I am listening. When I was shown the wheelchair accessible swimming pool I was so overwhelmed that I trulybelieve that not pursuing this would be akin to saying no to God.
There are many things to work out even if the application goes through. The issues withmy daughter , the chance I may be taking legal guardianship or my grandchildren, what to do with my home and of course raising support ( be prepared to receive your letters) lol.
But through it all I know that God is good and what seem like insurmountable tasks for me are notthing for God. So I am trusting in Him and believing that if this is truly where he wants me, He will make it happen. I can't wait to find out how it all works out.
I have finished my associates degree in Biblical studies bit the bachelors has been a struggle, overnight shifts are a difficult adjustment and of course I tried to keep up my various volunteer activities but sadly they have fallen off to.But through it all I have a wonderful wife who stays by my side, a great church family and a faithful God to whom I owe everything.
