Looking Forward to What's Ahead
It feels like things are coming together. Steve and I had a two hour conversation with our Wycliffe recruiter on Sunday. Since we hit the break even point in our debt we felt that we could move ahead with the process. We now know what our next step is. Once we fill out the application and become approved candidates, and have an interview with the application specialist we can apply for the Equip training in Orlando. Equip is a two week training that will teach us about partnership building, language development, and other things for Wycliffe. The next Equip training is at the end of January. Two weeks in Orlando in January 2012...that sounds like a great plan. Then when we complete that we will get our assignment and can start our graduate studies at GIAL. At this point we will put the house on the market and move to Dallas. Selling the house will not only make us debt free but will give us the money we need to pay for school. We are thinking that maybe that can happen in the next two years. We can keep working our current jobs through the whole process. I'm excited to see what God has in store for us in the next few years.
