Thank You!

I just want to thank you again for the prayers you've offered on behalf of my job search. They worked! I got a surprise call from a principal on Wednesday about a job I didn't know about. It was posted as "Communications," so I didn't pay it much mind. The principal had seen my application online and decided to call me about coming in to interview the next day. I didn't post anything about it, frankly because I was sick of posting about this subject, but I'm glad to tell you that I got a call from him today saying that they want me for the job! I still have to do a second interview with the personnel dept. at central office, but he says it is rare for someone not to make it from the principal's recommendation to actual employment. This is an eighth grade position that will require me to teach mostly writing and to work with the eighth grade English teacher in splitting up grammar and vocabulary duties, which is almost exactly what I was doing at Drakes Creek just before we moved. I'll also be working with another teacher as a speech coach there. I am relieved and so grateful for the way you have helped me to petition God to move in this situation. I am so blessed by you all!

I am so excited for you! That sounds like a perfect match. If you need a sitter for Cole I am jobless still so I can watch him when we get back from the honeymoon :)

Kate, I am so awful. I have been keeping up with your job search, and kept meaning to write something encouraging, but I kept putting it off (can you imagine that?). I just always think that following God is like riding in the back seat of a car and God is the only one who knows where He is taking us. We see exits that look cool or interesting or promising, and we keep thinking "Maybe this is the exit!" But as we pass it by we become a little more distressed. But as you have now experienced, there is a perfect destination for us, and we only have to wait. Congratulations!

Yeah, I know you must be excited. If you need a sitter you can always bring Cole back to KY and I will be happy to keep him during the school year. I really miss you guys. Tell Gilbert that he still hasn't sent the picture of Cole that he promised.
Much love,
Sandra
