In just a few days, we'll be flying out to Baptist International Missions, Inc to go to their mini candidate school. Normally the school is in June, but they do a mini-session in December for those God has called and who do not want to wait another six months to apply. We fly out on Sunday and land in Birmingham, AL. There we'll rent a car and drive to Chattanooga. Monday morning we take a doctrines exam. Monday afternoon we'll meet with the European field director and a couple others for an interview. They will recommend to the board of directors whether to approve us as missionaries or not. Monday evening we will go before the board of directors for an interview and final approval. If we are approved, we will have deputation classes on Tuesday and return home on Wednesday. We'll then attend another weeklong school in June. Pray for us as we take the tests and go through the interviews on Monday. Also, we will not be able to take Samuel with us; he will stay at home with our extended family. We've never been away from him for this long. Pray for Elisabeth. :)
James has been ill with an allergic reaction to something, possibly a medication he had been prescribed last week. Benadryl didn't work, but it's finally looking a little better thanks to two visits to the doctor and two prescription anti-histamines. Pray for James as well.
Lastly, we praise the Lord that we've been able to book another meeting for March. We have quite a few meetings booked for the summer and fall 2010, but not for the first half of the year. Pray for us that we'll be able to book meetings for first half of 2010.
We are a family on our way to the mission field of the United Kingdom. Ryan, Elisabeth, Samuel, and James
