Happy Fourth of July, everyone! My apologies for not writing more often. Let me give you a quick run-down of the last few weeks.
I had my diagnostic 6-month mammogram a few days after my last post. The pictures show no sign of cancer, no radiation thickening, and a reduction in the size of the surgical scar. As my radiologist said, “God is so good, isn’t He?” Amen!
I went on a mission trip to Monterrey, Mexico, the first weekend in June. It was my first trip to Mexico. The Vacation Bible School classes we taught went well, as did the ladies’ and mens’ classes. Some of the men fixed up a woman’s porch so that she can work at home as a beautician and not have to leave her children alone. It was a very good weekend.
The next Saturday, June 14, I took my CISA exam. I studied a lot for the exam, and I think that’s going to pay off very well. I think I passed. Of course, I could be very wrong! 🙂 I should find out in another five or six weeks.
I have completed approximately 53% of the first draft of my first hardcopy book. I hope to submit it to the publisher by the middle of October, preferably sooner.
Early this week, I accepted a new position within my company. I haven’t received the HR paperwork yet, so it’s all unofficial. I will be leaving IT after 8 and a half years, but, in a way, I’m not really. I will be working on business continuity planning (BCP)and disaster recovery (DR) planning. DR is the technology component of BCP, so I will be working with some folks in IT as we work on the DR plan. I will start my transition to my new job in about 2 and-a-half weeks.
Please pray for our upcoming mission trip to Honduras. Have a blessed and Christ-centered week!
