WOW!! Life is crazy.
Good news….Roxanne is recovering well and returning to her normal life. This week she returned to school (if only half days for a while).
On the Extreme front we have BIG news. Mike is returning to a full time position with Extreme. He will be the Donor Development Officer. Some of you may remember our original plan prior to Mike’s illness was to do just this. See this blog post from March 2010. This is a newly created position in Extreme but one that is badly needed. Basically, Mike will be coordinating the effort of ministering to the financial supporters of Extreme. We will be based in the Eugene area but the new position will require a fair amount of travel around the USA and occasionally to project sites.
Traditionally, this role has been left to Brian Tibbs (the director of Extreme) but now the ministry will have a full-time volunteer dedicated to this task. It is a huge job that starts off with the immediate goal of raising $675,000 over the next two years for the upcoming project in Peru.
Like all events in our lives we covet your prayer support. Specifically, please pray that God would open doors and lead Mike so that he can quickly finish task 1-A of funding his own position so that he can focus on task 1-B, raising the $675,000 for the upcoming project in Peru.
Among others, we have learned two huge lessons in 2010. One being that when we think we have plans God often has others. Second, and more important, with enough people praying anything is possible.
