God is so good and has overwhelmed me once again with His blessing and provision! After interviewing at the Pregnancy Care Clinic almost 2 weeks ago I was beginning to wonder if I would ever hear from them and if it could possibly be good news when I did. Friday I got the call that they wanted to offer me a position as the Human Resources Director. (or something like that…I can never remember the official job title!) This was so exciting because it wasn’t even the job I had originally interviewed for. After talking with the employer she thought I would be perfect for the position so she had me talk to the current human resources director to get a feel for what the job is and to see if I would be interested in it. Apparently this lady thought I would be perfect for the position as well and they are excited to have me on board!!
The Pregnancy Care Clinic is a non-profit organization here in Oak Harbor. My employer goes to my church and she is an amazing woman with a beautiful passion for this ministry. I am so excited about the opportunity to work with her and so many other Christian women that have a deep love for the Lord and care and compassion for the women that come to the clinic for help and guidance. The clinic does not recommend or endorse abortion in anyway. We are pro-life all the way! (just thought I better put that disclaimer in there)
My job will include being in charge of all the volunteers—training them and helping them with any problems, as well as looking through volunteer applications to find some more wonderful people to help us out--teaching parenting classes, helping with pregnancy tests and ultrasounds, doing some minor counseling work with young women/couples, and setting up seminars every couple months to help the volunteers (and myself) keep up on the last issues, laws, and advances in various pregnancy related issues. (i.e.: adoption, abortion, pregnancy heath, etc.)
To celebrate Amy, Miriah, Stephen, and I went out to Applebee’s for dinner and had quite a lovely time…at least I thought so! There were some serious moments but mostly lots of laughing and poking fun at one another. Amy’s face must have been tired because she had to stretch it and I laughed so hard I cried. I love my friends. Thank you for celebrating with me and for bringing so much joy into my life!!!
The other exciting thing right now is that my parents are, at this very moment, on a plane traveling to Oak Harbor to visit me for a week. They should be landing in a couple hours and I’m pretty excited! I got the house all cleaned up for them and it’s so great that we’ll all get to celebrate together! It will be so fun to show them around the island and help them understand why I love it here so much. Hopefully the rain will stop and the sunshine and mountains will come back into view while they are here. I’d hate for them to miss those beautiful sites! I have Monday and Wednesday of work, which makes their visit even more spectacular. I’m hoping we have a great time together…this is such a new season of life for all of us. It will be interesting to see how that affects our relationship. I think it will better it honestly. Time will tell.
So, until next time my friends and avid readers, blessings. :D
