I just got a phone call from Brent, who was able to spend the day in Louisville. He sounded so excited [which was pretty impressive since he got up at 4 am!], and began filling me in with details about the day.
He really enjoyed the guys he will be working with--- and it sounds like they will have more play than work, which I suppose is a good thing. I'm sure I'll hear many a story about "the guys" around the supper table, but I think that it will be a good fit for him.
He was also able to see the facilities at the church, which he said are pretty impressive. They have three baseball diamonds that he will start working at right away when we move out there, with maintenance and grounds keeping, and also concessions work. Then in the fall months he'll do more with their indoor facilities, including a weight room, an indoor track, 4 basketball courts [or was it five], etc etc etc. Needless to say... I think I'll be a little shell-shocked when I see 'our new church.'
He also had the opportunity to check out an apartment we have been keeping our eye on. He really liked it, and the guys from the church say it is a great neighborhood [and it's only 4 miles from the church!]. Currently nothing is open, but the manager says that typically a lot opens up in April. Start praying :)
Well, that is about all I can update you on as of now. I sent off my application to a Christian School system in Louisville on Friday.... so pray about that before you pray about the apartment :)
I'll keep you updated if anything else transpires! Thanks for all your well wishes and prayers on this one...I know I will definitely keep needing them as I continue to trust that this is the move God has for us.
