I have been busy the last two weeks volunteering at the camp. It is hard work, but I enjoy being able to spend time with friends to do it. Although , I haven’t been able to mud the last couple of days. I hurt my thumb somehow and I can’t hold the bucket that holds the mud. I have taken it easy with it this weekend and hope by Monday it will be alright. The worst part about it is I haven’t been able to play my guitar.
I am still looking for a job. I know God has one out there for me and in His perfect time, I will find it. I hope it is soon, because the last thing I want to do is admit defeat and head back to Texas. I love Alabama and hope to be here for a long time. But don’t get me wrong, I will be Texan until the day I die. Some of you may be saying, "Didn't you say a job might be opening up at the camp?" Well it did and they gave it to someone else. I know the fella who got it and he will do an excellent job. I guess that is just not where God wants me right now.
Here’s some exciting news. I have applied to Liberty University to finish up my Bachelor degree online. They don’t offer one in English so I am going with a Bachelor of Science in Religion. Since I feel I may be in the mission field someday, it is a wise choice. I applied for Federal Aid, but I’m not getting much so I will have to take out some student loans. I’m not worried about it though. I feel this is what God wants me to do so He will take care of me. I will actually be able to start classes on October 22nd. I am so excited. Yea! I get to go to school again. According to my New Student Specialist, I should be able to finish in a year and half or two.
I would also like to thank everyone who has been praying for me. I have had a rough last couple of days. I had it out with God this morning and, of course, He won. I am doing much better now after He revealed some pet sins to me and I have taken steps to resolve them. I still need your prayer though. The director at the camp I live at has resigned to take another job. I am not sure where this leaves me since I am here only because he lets me stay. I have been reassured by a friend that he and his wife have a place for me should it come down to it, but they are about to move and I don’t know if they really could. As I keep having to remind myself, God will take care of me.
Well, I think that is about all the news I have. Unless you are interested in knowing I have lost 7 pounds!! When I actually tried to lose weight I couldn’t. Now that I am not trying, it is coming off fast!
