So, I received a phone call from Charlie at JAARS, an organization that works with the Wycliffe Bible translators. They want me to come and see how I could fit into their ministry, and possibly go abroad, setting up technological infrastructure for missionaries in other countries. I think that this is really cool. One of the things that I’ve wanted to do is grow my business to a point where I can support myself, and then go abroad and be a self employed missionary. If this is the route that God wants me to take, then this is definately a door that is being opened.
So I’m going to call them back later this week, and figure out a time early this summer when I don’t have class to go out to North Carolina for a week and get a feel for what they are doing, and how my skills can be put to use serving with them. If that is a route God wants me to take, I have faith that He will provide for me. I would need to sell my house (I’m planning on this anyways), grow my busines to a point where I can support myself at least minimally, and have a good establishment here in Duluth with an employee or two to make sure the day to day operations keep running smoothly. Then I can do everything I need to do remotely.
I’m excited about this. Ever since last fall, I’ve been getting the itch to travel, and this fits in with what I have been thinking about where I want to take my business.
