Another thing that I just am praising the Lord for is that late last night we got an email from a friend in Ames that asked us to pray for several families in our church in Ames as one of the companies in town is going to lay off 6-8% of their employees next week. It sounds funny that I would be praising the Lord about that but this was a company that Mark applied to work for and was really hoping he would get a job with them so we could continue to live in Ames. I do believe that God was protecting us from this layoff by not allowing Mark to get a job offer from them. I am still amazed by the way God works out EVERY detail of our lives. We do want to pray for our friends that do work for the company that they will not lose their jobs next week.
