Today is a great day! After 11 long months the FAA gave Jonas his Air Traffic Control license! He is now eligible for hire in the FAA. This is going to start what could be a speedy or a drawn out hiring process. Jonas will start introducing himself to airport managers here in the metroplex and in Amarillo over the next month. Jonas has requested both California and Texas as preferred hiring states. We should be placed in one of these two states but that doesn't mean Jonas couldn't be hired in another state. Once Jonas receives a tentative offer letter from an airport he will then have to report to Oklahoma City for more training before starting at the actual airport. Needless to say, we are going through a lot of emotions, we are: anxious, excited, scared, and grateful. ( did I hit all of them??)
We ask everyone to join us in prayer as we prepare for our future. Pray for wisdom and discernment as Jonas begins making decisions regarding his career. Pray for the people Jonas will come in contact with during the hiring process. Pray God's hand is in it all. Pray from financial support to pay for the school Jonas just went through and any other financial issues that may or may not come up while Jonas is inbetween jobs. Lastly, pray for our hearts. Pray the Lord gives us patience and renewed spirits daily so we can prepare to be disciples in His kingdom. Where ever it may be.
Jonas and I are beyond blessed to have such wonderful friends and family. Friends that we can depend on for uplifting prayer and support. I pray each one of you knows that you can depend on us as well. Please let us know any way we can pray for you!
I am overwhelmed by God's love for us failing sinners. May our lives be a testimony to the cross! AMEN?? AMEN!!
