Good news. I have a job lead. I am first on the list to train and be hired for this job that pays really well, more than I’ve ever made actually. Here’s the thing though. It’ll be about 45 days before I am allowed to be trained.  The waiting continues. Another interesting tid bit is that its around that time that I’d also have to make another important vocational decision. Time will tell. I plan to make the most out of the next 45 days.

I still have temp work, although I don’t know how long that will last. I’m grateful for the help of family and prayer and support of my faith community and friends.

I want to share one last thing. In my previous post I spoke about being in a season of wanting to substantiate the things on my heart concerning social justice. I want to understand and act on what it means to live for social justice, practically. It’s my hearts desire and I believe a natural outgrowth my faith.

Today is a unique day. It is the International Day of the Eradication of Poverty . It is also a huge day for the A21 Campaign, an organization that is dedicated to the fight against modern day slavery.

Did you know, there are an estimated 27 Million human being’s in slavery? There are more slaves in the world today than at any other point at one time in world history.

Here are a few organizations that are really stepping up to the plate when it comes to this issue. If you haven’t already, educate yourself on Modern Day Slavery. Thank you for your time. Take care.
