It's been weeks since I've written, I'm so sorry. The 3.5 is probably down to 2.8 of you that actually read now, if I'm lucky.
But hey, since I cross post to Facebook, I'm sure at least one or two will read this. And it's a quick way to get the changes announced.
In many ways, my time since September of last year has been some of the best of my life. I spent more time with family, got more things done, played more golf than I had done in a long time. In November, I got a temporary contract from a friend to do some consulting work, assigned to help Dallas Christian College with their capital campaign. I will be forever grateful to Pat and to the president of the college, Dusty, for their support of me.
Last Friday I was offered the position of Field Site Director of World Vision's ministry here in North Texas. When I told the president of the college this, he offered me a permanent position as VP of Advancement. Talk about your difficult choices!
After a weekend of discussion and prayer (even had that extra day this past weekend) I have accepted the position with World Vision, and will begin that job on February 3rd. I can't tell you how excited I am to be involved with an organization that works to alleviate issues of poverty and injustice all over the world. If you're not familiar with World Vision (I have known of them for years, but honestly didn't know they worked domestically until I heard about this open position), check out their website at www.worldvision.org. Right now they are neck-deep in Haitian support and ministry.
Hopefully all of this change being behind us will mean more blogging. At least I hope so. I'm looking forward to how God will continue to work and use the Adkisons in 2010 and beyond. God is good!
