I got word late last night that our friends from Eglin, Josh & Rebekah, who we thought were nearly most definitely coming to Lajes this summer to replace Nick, the departing physician (there are only two of them here on Base), are not coming after all. The military has decided to send them to Turkey instead.
This is the nature of the military. Nothing is for sure until it is for sure. But all the people were saying the right things and telling us it was happening. You try not to get excited, but then you do, and then you get a bit sad when you find out it is not true. They were actually hopign to move into Nick & Kristy's house when they moved out. Bummer!
I know Rebekah is reeling even more than I am. You can't help but all but move yourself somewhere before you go, especially when the "powers that be" have indicated that is in fact where you are going.
Anyways, just a little sad about this. But sad is okay. God is present. He'll guide them. He'll guide us. But, geeezie. Bummer!
