Potential Orders

Since I don't know anything yet, I'll keep this very short. Please be in prayer for my family as we negotiate orders this week. The process is made trickier because of the fact that my daughter is a Category 4 Exceptional Family Member (EFM). That reduces our options quite a bit.

Let me just say without giving away more than I should, that there is one, and only one, set of orders that would work for my family given my skill set and our EFM. God has shown me how personal he is by allowing these orders onto the list. For that, I'm grateful.

My faith says that these are already our orders, I just have to claim them. My doubt says that it looks too good to be true. Please pray for us as we negotiate. It is one of the toughest decisions we've made so far in our career as it's the first time we've had to deal with EFM. Thank you so much and I promise I'll keep everyone informed of our decision!

As a way of update, my detailer called me today and our fears were confirmed. He wants to send me to a location that will put a great deal of strain on our family. I went back and forth with him for about a half hour (a long time for a detailer!) and finally left it that we would be discussing it again on Tuesday. Please continue praying...

Sometimes you have to go places so that you can learn certain lessons. I pray that you don't have to go where you don't want to go but I pray also that you continue to trust in God. Hang in there and keep your head up.

Mike,
It's not necessarily a matter of wanting to go or not. I would be happy as an instructor. Unfortunately, it is 80 miles from a treatment facility for my daughter. I have no doubt that God is in charge and he could get us through, but we are praying for more. We'll see!
