For me, 2008 is going to be very different. In late November last year, I was invited to go and work at the IBLP Headquarters, the same place Robert has been for the past year. I was there most of December for sort of a trial period to see if this was something I really wanted to be part of for a full year. It was at this time that God made a verse pop out to me: “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple” (Luke 14:26). In context with other things God had been doing in my life, I knew this was a rhema of God’s direction.
Not only will I be involved in the various ministries of the Institute, but I will be learning practical academic skills and gaining experience for the future. I will be working in the Graphic Arts Department doing design, layout, typesetting and picture taking for the never-ending outflow of various publications. To begin with, I’ll be learning the ins and outs of Mac computers, Photoshop, Illustrator, Quark and all kinds of useful software.
I would appreciate your prayers. God is all-powerful and He is the One who orchestrates time, projects, and people to make things go efficiently, quickly, or sluggishly. I hope to periodically post updates on how God works in the months ahead.
