Letting the bird out of the cage

We don't have a cat to take out of a bag, so our bird will have to do... and frankly he's not too hip on bags, so we'll simply take him out of his cage. (No that's not a picture of Niko, he'd never sit on something so froofy.) So what bird/bag cat/cage am I talking about?

For the past few weeks I have alluded to something at the tail end of a couple of my posts. Well, I finally feel like I can speak to that "thing" and give you all some details. I am in the process of working with a missions organization (OCi) to possibly fill their soon to be vacant "Director of Internet Services" position. Lisa and I are still praying and thinking it over, but the job would require a move. A move to Colorado Springs, Colorado.

As you have prayed for Lisa and I in the past we would ask that you pray with us now as we look to God to direct us as to whether we should go or not. For those of you wondering about my medical condition I feel like my oncologist had some really good advice that applies in this case, "Don't let your medical situation stop you from doing what you feel like you need to do." In my case it might be modified to "don't let your medical condition stop you from doing what God wants you to do."

As for time frame we'd probably be looking at sometime in October. They have said they'd like me October 1st, but I don't know if that is possible with everything that comes from moving to a new state.

Anyway, feel free to ask questions and such, we're open about talking about it. And please remember to pray for us.



  1. Read through Joshua 1:1-9. I think the Lord may have something there for you.

    "Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (Rom. 15:13)

  2. Your first question to OCI should be, "What database do you use?" If they say, "Shelby,"...RUN!!!
