I wanted to post this yesterday, but my blog has been down & I had to move it to a new webhost, so this is my first change to post since then.
Many of you already know this, but for those who don't, please read the text of the email I sent out yesterday below and pray with us.
Monday, July 13, 2009, 3:05pm: I just got a phone call that my chaplaincy residency program may not exist anymore in the next couple of weeks. Not only is the hospital looking at cutting the program, but also cutting the entire staff of chaplains. We have to move out of our house at the university by August 15th & we have nowhere else to go except to the program in Lubbock. Please say a prayer that the hospital will realize that this is a needed department and that all of the current staff will keep their jobs & all of the residents that are planning to start in August will still have a place to come.
Monday, July 20, 2009, 5:39pm: Thank you for all your emails of prayers, support, & encouragement. Still no word for sure from Lubbock. More questions than answers! However, some good news, after getting the call last Monday, I began contacting other programs to see if any had openings for this fall. Found a couple and sent my application to them. Got a call from St. Luke's in Houston earlier this afternoon & I'll be interviewing with them next Friday, July 31st. Please keep praying. There are so many details to deal with no matter what happens. We just want God's will in all this. Thanks again for your prayers & support!
