Cool news on the home front. My bride has accepted the position of Project Assistant for Disaster Relief with North Carolina Baptist Men. This will be the first time she has worked full time outside the home since the arrival of the youngin’s. If you knew my bride you would know what an awesome match she is for this job. I’m not about to suggest it to NCBM, but I have little doubt she would do this job for free… but that’s just between us, ok?
We have been aware of the efforts of this organization over the past fifteen years we have lived here in NC. In the nineties there were a few hurricanes that came through the state and there are actually still homes and situations being worked on and dealt with. Last year there were several teams of men coordinated and sent to Florida in response to their hurricane troubles. Earlier this year, friends of ours worked on teams sent to Sri Lanka to clean out wells and set up water purification systems. In each of these cases my bride would gently nudge me and suggest that I go and help. Each time I would grasp at one excuse or another. I now think my days are numbered.
