He has a job!

March 25, 2008 at 6:33 pm (Uncategorized)

For those who haven’t heard, Mark has reached a decision about his future job plans. Unfortunately for me he decided that “Mr. Mom” wasn’t really suited to his spirtual gifts 🙂

Instead he has decided to join with a Phoenix-based mission organization called In Touch Missions International.

ITMI has 20-30 projects, mostly supporting Nationals in Africa (Zambia, South Africa, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Congo), and also projects in Poland, Romania, and Ukraine. The projects range from churches that help to run and support other ministries, orphanages in Romania and Poland, Bible College and Christian K-12 schools in Africa, Christian homeless shelter ministries, medical clinics run by the church, and much more. Mark will be working to meet with and assess the current structure and needs of the projects and see how ITMI can better resource those Nationals, as well as look for ways to help them grow their vision and opportunities in the future.

I never thought I would ever be a pastor’s wife and I CERTAINLY never thought I would be a “missionary wife”.  And while he is working stateside for the majority of his job (there will be some travel) we will be true missionaries in the sense that we will be raising our own support to pay our salary, etc.

God has blessed us so undeservedly in the area of our finances and I have no doubt he will continue to provide.
