Job Update

Just about everyone we know is praying that Paul's job at UPS will go to full-time very soon. But, it does not look like this will happen soon. Paul found out a few days ago that four of the full-time drivers (at his center, in Columbia, MO) have been laid off... and this is at the start of "peak season." These men will be used as "driver helpers" for a few weeks before Christmas... The outlook, at least from a human perspective, looks grim.

We beg for your prayers. We are praying for wisdom and guidance from the Lord:
- We do not have insurance at present, Paul will get insurance in about 6 more months if he stays at UPS, the family would qualify in another 6 months after that
- If drivers are being laid off, then there is no chance of Paul's going to full-time soon and getting the salary we need to live on.
- Should he stay part-time for benefits to come? Or leave UPS entirely and seek a different full-time position?

We ask you to join us in our prayers! God has answered so many prayers already, and provided so many of our basic needs. We now ask for wisdom.
But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5 (NASB)

Sorry, I couldn't go back and add to the other comment...

We will pray and ask God to give you the wisdom that you need during this time, saying "Yes, and Amen" that He will do so, for all that lack and ask.
