Looking for one special person who loves children, to live at Choosing Joy for a week to a month. Said person will homeschool Mike and De'Etta's children, live in Mike and De'Etta's house, parent Mike and De'Etta's children; but not be able to drive in country. Said person will kiss all boo boos, mend all torn clothes, be responsible for smooth functioning of home for snatches of time during De'Etta's upcoming travel schedule. Employment package includes travel to Japan, lodging for term of service, lots of heavenly jewels and much appreciation. Must be recommended by at least 3 mothers, a panel of religious leaders, a panel of medical specialists and siblings of G family. Interested Applicants see note below.*
What do you think? ::snort:: Yes, I have been begging God for creative ideas to deal with the upcoming schedule conflicts between my ministry as Asia Region PWOCI President and Mike's ministry as a USAF chaplain.
We have dates. Mike will leave Japan the end of Feb. There is discussion on what will happen for the last two weeks of March between his training and arriving on the East Coast. He'll return home, the end of October.
This means, once again, God has clearly directed that I NOT be a PWOCI Trainer. This is the ONE position I've wanted in PWOC. ::snort:: It simply won't work for me to attend training in NM and travel internationally 3 times this summer...as Mike will be gone.
It also means that I've had "logistic complications" for the two trips I "must" make and the 3 or 4 I'd "like" to make this spring. We've been praying. Everyone I THOUGHT of asking to come stay with the kids is either working, in college, homeschooling their own families, or moving to America. ::snort:: I thought it would be a LOT to ask someone who just met us to take this on.....but I have had offers of help.
We currently have someone praying about traveling to Japan for part or all of March. I'll be able to use others who have offered help to provide logistics for those at home with no transportation.
Yes, this post began silly and is intentionally vague. The purpose of the post is to share Michael's upcoming travel information under an innocent title and to remind you that I covet your participation in our lives through prayer.
*No, I'd never REALLY have someone I don't know well stay with my children while I'm out of country. BUT I would appreciate all prayers for our upcoming spring.
JOSIAH & JAMIN ARE HOME!
Living all of life before the face of God...
