Praise! James got a summer job. He'll actually be working security on campus!
We are very excited and this is an answer to much prayer!
-It will help provide for us financially
-It will help us pay down his student loans, making overseas service in a few years a better reality
-The location is ideal on our campus:
-Less than 2 miles away, gas expenses will be low
-Our campus is so safe, and now that it's summer, it'll be basically dead with half the students gone. this way I won't have to worry as I would if he were at a different, dangerous location.
-They've agreed that it's OK for him to be off the 2 weeks for Peru!
-If he likes the job and continues in the fall, he'll be able to take more day classes, making graduation closer.
The only downer, it's second shift, 3pm-11pm so with me working 8am-5pm, I be alone in the afternoons. Now, I realize second shift is much better than third shift, so trust me when I say I am counting my blessings there. I guess I was hoping for a 7am-3pm shift ... oh well. This will allow me to get housework done while he's at work and it's not that hard to stay up until 11. I could always break up my sleeping into two 4 hours blocks, 7-11 and 3-7.
Please continue to keep us in your prayers!
And God will generously provide all you need - 2 Corinthians 9:8
