What a weekend it has been.
We went to Broomfield on Friday night and met with the pastor search team. The interview began with a question directed at... me. We talked for about 2 hours, answering their questions, sharing our testimonies and hearing about their church. At the end my dad asked, "So where do we go from here?" The leader of the team said, "Well, we have a big decision to make. We will give you a call."
We left encouraged and curious to see what would happen next.
Saturday morning came and went without a word. My family was in a constant state of prayer as we discussed why it was taking so long for them to call! Finally, the phone rang. It was Mr. Geist, the team leader. My dad answered, trying to be calm and cool. They small talked for a couple of minutes and then my dad's face became very serious.
Then he went gray. He stuck his thumb up in the air to us and grinned!
He told us, after he was finished, that Mr. Geist had said, "Tom, after praying and discussing the interview last night we believe you're our man."
I cannot begin to tell you the relief and healing that washed over our family. I am so excited for my dad and cannot wait to see what God has planned for us! We will go meet the church May 6th at a BBQ and dad will preach on May 7th when the church will do an official vote. Please keep us in your prayers...
... AND praise God with us as we rejoice!
