I have officially been living in Fort Collins for three weeks now. It is a true blessing to be able to stay with my friend Amy who has been so gracious and encouraging to me through my transition. The house had needed a bit of work and is still in process. My friend JJ and I were able to help out by installing a new counter top and kitchen sink. I got the chance to learn all about plumbing, jigsaws, and silicone. It was fun and I was happy to be able to contribute to the house:)
I continue to look for jobs in Fort Collins. I have had several interviews but nothing has come through at this point. I have a few more leads and another interview lined up for this week. I also have one more online class to take for International Teams and have started my projects for this. I am currently looking for a mentor to go through one of the assigned books with me. Please join me in praying that I will find someone to fill this role and that God will also provide me with a job.
It has been a true joy to be living closer to my sister Rosemary these past few weeks. Earlier this month we celebrated her birthday with some of her friends. She has also been such a source of encouragement and support during my continued transitions.
Mom and Dad will be coming home Dec. 1st for about a month for the holidays. I am looking forward to spending time with them and once again being in the same country again:) Being back from Chicago things have moved a little slower than I anticipated but I continue to trust God's timing and plan in everything. At times I feel as though I am on a treadmill and Athens seems so far away. I continue to be thankful and blessed by God's provision and care. Thank you so much for the part that you play in this journey and ministry to Refugees who are hurting and desiring a sense of hope.
" But as for me I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more. My mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long, though I know not is measure. I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, O Sovereign Lord; I will proclaim your righteousness, yours alone." Psalm 71:14-16
