Some News...

I have some news! I have just been offered and accepted a full-time job at Food for the Hungry! For the last two months I have been working there part time, and though I have enjoyed having some extra time to relax and get settled here in Mesa, I decided that it was time for me to go back to working full time.
There were a number of reasons like the desire to save for the future, the fact that I will receive health benefits (which we already have from Red Mountain, minus dental) Food for the Hungry will provide dental for both Joel and I. But I think the bigger reason that I accepted this job is the fact that I have truly come to love my job and the organization that I work for. Every day I go to work and get to look at hundreds of pictures of children around the world that I get to help. I work with a great team of people both in the Child Sponsorship Department and the whole Food for the Hungry U.S. staff. I have enjoyed conversing with our field staff (staff oversees) and hearing and seeing their desire and passion to help the children in their own countries. I am blessed to be working with this organization and I am excited to be more involved and have further responsibilities.
My job will look a little different, but I have been filling in since the previous person moved to a different department so I will just continue doing what I have been doing the past few weeks, just on a full time basis.
I am a little sad to give up my Fridays (Joel also has this day off), but I think that I will be more productive with my time now.
Also, my sister and mom made it to Africa! Thanks for those of you that prayed!
