Still in Memphis...

Well I am still in Memphis because I have not received my work visa.  Last weekend was the NICS job fair.  I went to check out possibilities for next year in case I don't receive my visa.  I found a couple schools that I'm interested in and I am praying that God will make the decision clear of what I am to do next year.  But in the mean time I am doing catering for Chick-fil-A and working a couple days a week at Eddie Bauer.  
My friends and I are planning a few things for this spring that I am very much looking forward to. One of the things we are planning is a group to get together to serve around our city.  We are gathering ideas of places we can serve, then we will arrange dates and times for these events.  It is time that we stop just attending church and Bible study and start to live out our faith.

In Memphis...for a while?

I arrived in Memphis around midnight December 22.  It was good to be home to spend Christmas with my family after being gone for 5 months.  I came home hoping that my work visa would be ready in time for me to get to Atlanta to pick it up and get back to Brazil for the start of the semester on January 11.  That has not happened, and I don't know when I will be getting my visa.  As much as I want to get back to Belem, I know that God has a plan and a timing for everything.  So, I am in Memphis for a bit.  I just don't know how long that bit will be.
