So we met with the committee today... and no we didn't find out where we're going just yet. We basically were: just meeting with them to tie up loose ends, sharing our hearts and thoughts on the type of place we'd like to serve and listening to their ideas about where there might be openings for us. We felt like we got to convey everything we were hoping to convey to them and we think the meeting went fairly well. We are very blessed to have such a great group of people making the very hard decision about where we would best fit within Mission Aviation Fellowship. We won't tell you the places we talked about but we can tell you that we'll find out on Tuesday of next week where they think we should be placed. We are very excited to see where God would send us.
In the meantime we've been going to different classes to learn more about Mission Aviation Fellowship and how to prepare for foreign missions. Today we had a great class dealing with issues related to cross-cultural living. The man teaching it was from Indonesia and the class was both informative and entertaining at the same time. We feel very privileged that he would take time out to come to MAF twice a year to teach the class.
We also have been getting to know the short term staff and other candidacy class members during our time thus far. It's been fun to stand outside and visit with them about life and also about where they think God will lead them. Jenna's loved getting to know the other kids and playing with the cars. She loves the grass and loves the lava rock in the flower beds even more! We have to constantly keep on her to stop her from eating it!
We will try to keep you informed as we go. If you have any questions about this process please feel free to ask us and we'll let you know!
