This has been a big week for us. We started classes on Wednesday morning (first up: James & Hebrews) and have loved every bit of it so far. While we are in class, Hudson spends his time flirting with the lady infants in the nursery. Everyone loves him. Everyone. I’m not making that up. The school has filled up with a lot of new faces mixed in with the familiar ones, and we are excited about getting to know them over the course of the year. Life in this community has it’s challenges, but there is also much we are grateful for.
We have never doubted God’s faithfulness to provide for us here, and He has continued to show us that He is able to meet our needs. Last year I had the opportunity to do some odd jobs for the owner of a local used book store, and upon returning to town earlier this month, I reestablished contact with him and was offered more work. Last week, he offered me a job in his book store with the perfect amount of hours and flexibility. I’m pretty new to the whole retail/cash register thing, but I’m getting the hang of it pretty quickly.
This Jackson economy may be shaky, but our God is a rock!
