A few people wrote that they were not sure what was going on with me… so I thought I’d write this quick update. I have signed a contract to begin work, sometime in August, at a local hospital as their English Editor for Critical Documentation. I have also found a place to live from Aug-Feb one block from the hospital!

I have friends who have been looking for work for over 2 years, and am very grateful to the Lord for opening these good doors for me. So, on June 30 I leave Israel to return to the US and pack up my things, see my family, say goodbye, and then head back to Israel in August. The job includes 4 weeks paid vacation a year… so I’m hopeful to be able to visit.

I have to admit, the timing is not deliberate, but does seem weird to me… Rich and I had our religious wedding here in Israel on August 10, 2007; he went to be with his savior on August 16, 2010, and in August 2011, I’ll be returning to Israel to live… all to show that the cliches are true: reality is stranger than fiction… and my reality is not as strange as many of the stories I’ve heard from others who have come here to live.

Today is a special day as well: my second god-child, Noa, is being making her public commitment of faith by immersion today! She was hoping I could be here for this day…

So much to be thankful for… she also likes the song, “Who Am I” by Casting Crowns, so I’ll be singing that today for her… and agree totally with the ending… Whom shall I fear? And the answer… No one, because I belong to my Lord, and He IS good!
