Life is crazy! The Lord has been pouring out his blessings upon me as of late... Awesome friends and family, job interviews... and just got a call this evening, I'm leaving for Haiti... Tomorrow!
Yesterday, I had a test and job interview with a local ambulance company to work as a paramedic, this was a huge blessing -- it's been quite a while since any of the agencies in the area have been hiring. I passed the test, felt like I did pretty well in the interview. I got back to my car and found that I had missed a call from a local non-profit I have been volunteering with: Medical Teams International. So I called them back and found out they wanted to send me to Haiti for 30-60 days leaving this Wednesday. I told them that I just didn't know if I could based on the possibility of a job offer and some other things I had coming up. So I prayed about it, contacted a lot of people I love and respect, got some very meaningful thoughts and prayers. After going back and forth I saw the Lord's hand at work in the situation and at 6:30 this morning I made the call and told them I would be willing to go. After a day of running around like crazy, I finally received confirmation about leaving at about 5:00 o'clock this evening!
Praise the Lord for this amazing opportunity. I feel so blessed. Your continued thoughts and prayers will be appreciated. I will try to keep you all updated as much as possible.
