Well, I found some more NiSource documentation about the outsourcing. You can find it on their website buried in the investor relations section. This is the same presentation they showed to the Wall Street analysts. Here is another interesting presentation you may also want to look at.
As you can see, I have a calendar control up now. Right now, I’m happy with it, but we’ll have to wait for a couple of months worth of posts for me to really decide how I like it.
Well, I went and talked to the MetroColumbus Baptist Association today. About six months ago, I pitched the idea to them that the local association should have an IT guy on staff to provide technology help to all the churches affiliated with the association. At the time, they didn’t have the money, but I was able to volunteer to do some stuff for them (primarily their website and the website for their Bible Institute. The answer was basically the same now that it was then: giving is down so they cannot really afford to pay someone. However, I did make some inroads into talking to him about the association sponsoring me as a NAMB Mission Service Corps. If you know anything about this program, please contact me and let me know.
I also talked to my boss at work, and told him that I was actively seeking other employment. His reaction was muted, but what could you expect? Just about everyone here that I can think of is looking since the outsourcing announcement.
At youth group tonight (did I mention I go to Highland Baptist Church in Grove City, OH?), Paul Pyle had a really good message. One of the things he pointed out was that God does have a plan for our lives. Jeremiah 29:11 has this to say:
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Thanks BibleGateway for the lookup of the verse
Right now, I think that the Lord has something good in store with my idea and Christian Computer Solutions. Can you join me in prayer for this? That God will reveal his will to Cyndi and me so we can do what he wants.
