Yes, I got a job! Here’s an email I sent to my friends and family (and now to the blogosphere).
As of Saturday, I accepted a full-time position at Philadelphia Biblical University as their Resident Director. I will be working as part of the Student Life Department and will be interacting with and assisting the Resident Assistants at the off-campus housing. This is wonderful news on a number of levels:
1) My 9-month full-time occupation drought has ended.
2) Amanda and I were concerned about finding a place to live even after I found a job. However, PBU will be giving us an apartment on campus to assist in my duties as Resident Director.
3) Since we decided to help plant a church in Bristol, I hoped to find a job near Bristol and a place to live in Bristol. Langhorne is not very far from Bristol so it’s almost as good as it gets!
4) I was hoping to find a job where I would be able to work with people regularly, and this job is as people-oriented as it gets.
I will be finishing up my two part-time jobs this week, and next week we’ll be on a much-needed vacation in North Carolina. Both jobs were sad to see me go but understood. I will no longer be getting free coffee and discounts since I won’t be working at Starbucks, and I won’t be bored to tears because I will no longer be working at Bisco.
I’m completely grateful to all of you for your prayers and support. Thanks so, so much.
Evan, Amanda, and Giselle
