The latest here...



Hello all,

I thought I should bring you all up to speed on whats going on here. The good news is that Benson has been offered a job, and accepted it. He will be a restaurant manager for Buffalo Wild Wings. We are glad to have something, but at the same time... this job is not enough to support our family. We both feel like working is better than not working, but we still need your prayers. Something else needs to come along. He wants to be working in financial analysis, so we are still hoping for that. In this economy though, we will take what we get, and we are grateful. It could be months or even years before the financial markets are actually able to start hiring . . . He still has one good lead he is wanting to come through, but we need some income somewhat desperately and can't wait to see if it comes through before we need the income. I know the Lord is aware of us, and I know many of you have been praying for us as well. Thank you so much! We are trying to be humble and grateful for the opportunity we have been given.

I know how hard it is to take something that you know isn't enough, but it takes a lot of courage to accept what you can. Every time you have posted something, I was hoping for news of a job. I was so grateful that something is happening...no matter how small. And yes, you will still remain in our prayers and hope for a more sustaining job.

Congratulations you guys! What a blessing to have good honest work during times like this. I met a man this morning who is moving to Ohio for work. He said he couldn't even get hired on here at McDonalds. You will remain in our prayers.
