Didn't think it could happen to us
Hey everybody. Just wanted to let you know how things are going in our neck of the woods. In case you don't already know, my position at work was terminated the other day. I still have a job (barely). I am now out in the gas fields doing maintenance and labor work. I suppose that is better than sitting at home doing nothing.
As far as the "barely" part of my job goes, as of today I am on a will-call basis. And I had my work truck pulled today too. AND the will-call basis goes according to seniority. So, being that I am the relatively new guy on the crew, I will be one of the last they call to go to work.
I guess you can say that I am a little nervous about our future. And I am a little upset that this is happening to us. I worked hard for my reputation, but it goes to show that it's not what you know, but who you know. Leola and I will try to make it work for as long as we can. And once we cant make it work anymore, there is always family in Rio Rancho that will lovingly take us in until we can get back on our feet.
But enough complaining! Leola and I are hosting a bible study at our house on Friday which will be fun and maybe a few new faces will show up. This will be the first time that it is at our place, and the third time that the study has been going on. On Saturday, we are going to Alamosa, CO to help our sister church outreach and pass out flyers. That will be an interesting time for us.
That's all I have to say for now. We promise to keep you all up to date on our happenings. Keep us in your prayers as far as my job situation goes! Until next time, God bless!
Oh, yeah. We went to see "Where the Wild Things Are" and it was horrible. So where are the wild things at anyway? SUCKVILLE!!! Don't see it. Okay, see it, then get mad for spending two hours to see it and wasting money. LOL laters!
