This post is actually just a reprint of my response to the last three comments on my previous post.

Krister, Jodi and KC,

Thanks for your prayers. We would have definately had a much more difficult time with all of this had it not been (and continue to be) for the prayers and support of our Christian family.

Interestingly, I’m now in Louisiana. My Dad has offered me a job working with him doing insurance claims adjusting here in New Orleans…

Its crazy how these things come together. I’m going to be riding around with my Dad this week and if everything works out, I’ll actually start on my own on Saturday. This could really turn out to be a huge blessing financially as well as providing me with an opportunity to get out of Dallas and clear my head for a while.

However, and this is a big however, it is also going to be very difficult. Besides the job strain (long hours, 7 days a week for 3 months) I am going to be 8 hours away from Rachel, Conner and the Son-yet-to-be-named. So, if I may be so bold as to ask those who are praying for our family to add this to the growing list!

I pray that this opportunity is the answer to prayer we’ve been waiting for and will allow us to carefully consider our next ministry move without the pressure of just taking whatever we’re offered so we can have a job.

Thanks again to all of you who continue to lift us up, we’ll keep you posted on our progress.

  1. Bret,
    that is good news. I am glad that you are finding something to keep you going for now. I will be praying for your family. I have a good friend, named Andy Brown, who does independent insurance adjusting–he tells me that he can make quite a bit in a short amount of time. I pray that all is going well and look forward to hearing from you.

  2. Bret,
    I’m glad you’re in Louisiana with your Dad, but sorry that people are treating you so badly at times. My Mom told me that Rachel was pregnant yesterday on the phone and I was so excited! Congratulations! Wow…what a lot of changes in just a short time.
    I don’t know what to say except persevere and keep hoping and believing. Our God’s gonna work it out.

    Much love,
    Heather Amend
