Last week we told you we were in meetings that could determine what we'll be doing for the next years. We've received lots of emails and IM's from friends asking how things turned out. Thank you so much for even caring about us (and especially for praying).
Although we've been asked to keep certain information under wraps until the project is publicly announced, what I can tell you is that we are definitely one step closer to a collaborating on a project that seems to fit our passions and abilities perfectly. It would allow us to continue working in Latin America training youth workers and coordinating our youth ministry website while also taking advantage of our interest in mentoring and creative forms of education.
The meeting itself went well. The consultant was experienced and skilled. The process he lead us through helped us get to know our potential partners and the project better. The goals and philosophy behind it resonated with us...we've been thinking in this same direction for a few years. The four of us agreed on nearly every significant point.
However, there are still significant questions to consider, like how this would fit into the larger strategy and personnel structure of our organization, OC International.
If all goes well, in the near future we will be able to tell you all about this exciting new adventure God seems to be allowing us to be a part of.
