Well, we’re thanking God that our prayers have been answered! Jim has been interviewing potential assistants ever since Maya left at the end of May. In addition to everything else that goes on in a busy ministry, Ukraine Medical Outreach, and the fact that the office location has temporarily changed to…OUR FLAT (can you say, “Whoa…that’s a lot of boxes!”?)…and another room is loaded temporarily with Jeanne and Kolya’s belongings, the process of interviewing and choosing an assistant has taken a bit longer than expected.
We were thankful that Artyom (office manager…uh, when we had an office!) came to our flat to evaluate the different candidate’s translation ability. Both he and Jim felt particularly good about one of the applicants. Good news: It’s a guy! We had hoped that we could find a qualified young man! Interesting news: Not good, not bad…he’s only 21. Young, young, young. Praying that he will grow into this position!
Anyway, that’s the BIG NEWS of the day.
