I just wanted to give a quick update on the job situation with Frost & Sullivan. John got back to us to let us know that the Analyst position in Aerospace & Defense is still a possibility, but it's hit a bit of a snag. I guess the hiring manager is trying to decide whether he wants to hire another Air Force guy into a team of all prior Air Force, or if he'd like to try to get some representation from other branches of the military (Army, Navy, etc). That's delayed the time frame a little for now.
The good thing about it is that John took Collin's resume to their Human Resources person, and she suggested he take it to Jon in the Technical Insights division, because he's looking for a few people. So, John took it to him, Jon looked it over and said Collin's resume looked really good. He asked what our time frame is and how soon Collin would be available, since the position is open right now. He told John to please tell Collin he'd be calling him in the next couple weeks (by the end of the month) to discuss the opportunity with him. This position is for an Analyst in the Technical Insights division, which Collin is really interested in. One day he could be researching SATCOM systems and the next day it could be heart monitors... and for those of you that know Collin well, you know that would be PERFECT for him! He's so smart and always interested in the way things work and will get these urges to go research the way things work, just because he wants to know. :)
Please be in prayer over this opportunity for us! We decided yesterday to try to move our separation date up to the 12th of January, which after 6 weeks of terminal leave, would put us in San Antonio around the 3rd of December. It's a bit of a risk, as there's no guarantee we'll have a job by then, but we're just at the point where we need to be in San Antonio soon, and we can't do as much from here. It means forfeiting about a week and a half of pay, but we think in the long run it'll be worth it. We're very excited to get home and start making a life for ourselves there! We know God is in control of this whole thing, and we're so thankful that He is. Thank you for all of your prayers, support and encouraging notes and e-mails - God blessed us so with such wonderful family and friends!
