Off to Colorado

Well, we're off to Colorado tomorrow after work. Actually, we're driving to the Bay Area after work (Tuesday) to leave the boys in the very capable hands of Mom & Dad Berry. Dad Berry will be playing Super-Grandpa as he will be charged with manning the fort during the day while mom is teaching. Please pray for the boys, and him!

We fly to Colorado Springs (COS) Weds. morning at 9:40am, arriving at 2:20pm in Denver. We're then renting a car and driving (about an hour) South to COS. We'll be staying at the Embassy Suites there in COS, both Weds. and Thurs. night, then fly back to Oakland Friday night - arriving at 10:25pm. A whirlwind trip - though not as bad as the one we took last November (to Africa for a whopping 4 days).

As for our time at eMi, here is the tentative schedule they gave us:

Tentative Interview Schedule:
Thursday, March 22nd
8:30 to 9:00 Morning Prayer
9:00 to 10:00 Personality Profile - Karen
10:15 to 11:30 Cross-Cultural aptitude assessment - Laura
11:45 to 1:00 Lunch – Erika & Henry
1:00 to 2:00 Office Tour - Henry
2:00 to 4:30 Group Interview - Glen, Gary, Craig, Karen

Friday, March 23rd
7:30 to 8:30 Friday Morning Worship
9:00 to 10:00 World Zone Presentation - Karen
10:30 to 11:30 Finance – Jason/Kelly
11:30 to 12:00 Wrap-up meeting – Gary/Glen
12:00 to 12:30 Next Steps - Karen

After all the questions we've answered, we can't imagine what we're going to have to talk about for 2 1/2 hours on Thursday afternoon! But on the serious side, we're very glad that they are as thorough as they are. With as big of a move as this is for us, it's comforting (and helpful) that they take it as seriously as they do.

We'll try to keep you updated as we have anything to share. ...Oh, we received the 'rough' draft of our DVD from Lindsay (& CJ) McPhail and it is awesome! We essentially made no changes of substance to it, and plan to take a copy with us to Colorado to share with the eMi people if it feels right/appropriate (not wanting to look presumptious by showing up with such a first-rate DVD for fundraising already produced before they've even hired us!).

Thanks for your prayers for our safe trip and effective meetings (and for the boys and Grandma & Grandpa!).
