If there are any of you who don't read my husband's blog, you may not have heard our big news! After many months of searching, waiting, and praying, he has gotten a job! He is the new Instructor of Economics and Finance at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Missouri (map here). The way it all came about is just miraculous, and God was so good to just drop this opportunity right in our laps. You can read more about how it happened at Justin's blog. So now we're working on making plans to try to move with a baby... Justin will probably fly out by himself and go house-hunting sometime in the next couple of weeks. It's just not feasible for us to try to take Elias. (He has picked out places for us to live on his own in the past and done a great job - I trust his judgment.) Then we plan to make the final move there sometime in mid-July. We want to stay here long enough for me to have my 6-week checkup (July 2) with the same doctor who delivered Elias. Plus, the older the baby is, hopefully the easier it will be to try to drive him halfway across the country. Please pray for us as we are figuring out details, finding a place to live, etc. Classes start for Justin on August 19th! :)
We are still kind of in a state of shock - it happened so fast! But we are incredibly thankful for God's provision for us, and we can't wait to see what the future holds. Please keep us in your prayers, and join us in praising God for answering our prayers in SUCH a huge way!
