Very close to the starting line

We're almost there!!


So as Pete mentioned in his prayer points in the last post, we've just had our psychometric tests.

If you're not familiar, a psychometric test islike personality test. We had to complete 3 separate tests (a total of 630+ questions) plus an interview with a psychologist to discuss the results of the tests.

So what's the verdict? We're sane!!! :)

No, seriously... apparently I don't handle changes very well and stress easily. Hm... not good when moving to a new culture! Under the recommendation of the psychologist who reviewed our results, I've headed back to the Christian counsellor I saw years ago to talk thru these isses and learn strategies to cope. Better to know now than later!


The kids and I have had our blood tests and we're all good. Teaghan and Lucas did brilliantly whilst poor Micaiah had to be sent to another centre because they failed to find the vein in her arm. They ended up doing a heel prick test.


Next up is the meeting/interview with the SIM state council on 25th Oct. Then a recommendation will be made as to whether we're appointed or not. From there, God willing, we'll be appointed and start support raising in Nov!!

It's so exciting!!!!!

Hi, glad you're sane!! Although doing all those questions might make one's head turn in circles. Continuing to pray for wisdom for all concerned with your plans.
