Prayer Request & Praise. .  
Just would like to bring up in prayer request & praise. .

My husband's job (American Sign Language Instructor to high school students) is closing the ASL program. . '

So he has to find a new job else where by this fall. .

He now has 3 job interviews to go to. . It's great. . All of them will be around Deaf people or at least nearby other Deaf people. (My husband and I are Deaf and also with our Deaf daughter)

Just asking for prayers for God's will which one is best one and also wisdom for the move during the summer as we find a place closer to his job. Then maybe by spring semester next year I'll be finally ready to go back to school.

God is good & its all in His timing! :)

Jen: yep. . its just a normal reaction with hearie people who dont want to make their companies more "deaf-friendly". . they just think "oh man! i got to add to my budget to pay for interpreter, transfer duties that a deaf person cant do to someone else, etc etc. . "

It never ceases to amaze me how little respect ASL gets when it is the third most used language in the United States (following spanish and english). I am not deaf, but grew up with a best friend who is a CODA and have several Deaf friends myself.

I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks for your prayers. .

Here's the update:

We had DeafNation Expo in Florida on March 18th. My husband had an interview there. He got hired immediately.

He will be starting either soon or when school is out for the summer. He's hoping for soon cuz he would like to work the full time hours rather than part time. Its only last 9 weeks of the school and kids aren't really taking him seriously.

He's really excited about the new job he will be starting. He calls the title "Deaf Community Advocate."
