Well, we finally finished our psychological surveys for AIM and thus basically completed our application process to go overseas! FINALLY! yay! Our tests will of course most likely tell the company we're both crazy, but its ok, they're finished! We are so so so excited to have this part of our journey behind us, we are one step closer to our final destination...it has been a slow crawl, but every inch has been worth it.
As soon as we got the word we were invited to candidate week in New York, where we will be placed in a country and job in Africa, we started looking up plane tickets...and finally purchased them early this week! We'll be gone April 16-23, and we're heading up a week early to get a mini-vacation in...see some sites, maybe rest a little, and take Cruz to his first out of the womb (we went to a Rangers game when I was pregnant) professional baseball game. We're ready...ready to fly, ready to get away, ready to hear where the Lord will have us placed for the next few years at least...just ready. Cruz is coming with us, so it'll be a family affair - we're so excited that he is only 6 months old and already seeing so much of the country. Hopefully he'll catch the travel bug like we have or else he'll have a long long childhood full of airports he doesn't really appreciate...I have a feeling our happy man will enjoy wherever he is in the moment - he is so full of life and love with whoever he meets and wherever he is already, I'm just stoked to watch God grow his little vibrant personality.
We'll start talking to some people soon about different jobs we may feel lead to take, and then officially get word that week in April, so we'll keep you posted!
