You can probably imagine, but we get asked the same questions all the time. I even had a student’s parent say, “You probably get asked the same questions all time time. You should put a FAQ on your website.” Lightbulb moment. So here it is!
1. WHEN ARE YOU LEAVING FOR ZAMBIA?
While we won’t have a specific date until March or April, the plan is to leave late June or early July. July is the most expensive month to fly because that is when most Americans will go. Our schedules are more open and Africa is cooler (their winter). It all depends on the cost of tickets.
2. HOW IS GOING TO ZAMBIA AFFECTING YOUR JOB?
This is one of our confirmations that the Lord has given us. Brad had talked to his principal after the last trip in 2011 about the possibility of teaching there for a year. Mr. Vriesenga has taught in Christian schools for many years and is very supportive of teachers using their skills and talents in cross-cultural settings. He is doing everything he can to ensure that Brad’s “leave of absence” will allow for returning to his position when we return for the 2016 school year. Nothing is 100% guaranteed but we trust that the Lord will provide.
3. WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR HOUSE?
Our current plan is to rent our house. We have a friend who owns a property management company who will assume the responsibilities of landlord while we are away. If you know of someone who may need a house to rent in the “panhandle” of southwest Wyoming starting in the summer, please send us an email.
If you have more questions, and I realized we get asked that one all the time, we may just add it to the FAQs. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
