Explaining “That Which I Can Now Tell You”

Ok…so many of you have followed mention (mainly on twitter) what was formerly known as “that which I cannot yet tell”. Well, now I can, though not under the circumstances I’d wanted.

Before I do that, though, a quick word in case clients other than those who I had confided in and who had helped with references: what you are about to read would not have left you high-and-dry at all. My very first thought when we began this journey was how to ensure that your needs were taken care of, and this was the first thing discussed and planned, and had this progressed, meeting with you about the arrangements was the very first thing scheduled.

Here it is: we were in the midst of a process that would have taken us to Malaysia to work and serve at a Christian international school. It’s a very long story about what led us to this, going back, in my case, years. Ultimately, this particular school chose another individual for the position. Disappointing, yes…and surprisingly so for the older kiddos, who took the news far harder than we expected.

As for me personally, I’m disppointed…and still processing.

  1. Sorry to hear this Scott. Sounds like it would have been an incredible opportunity. But at the risk of sounding cliche… when one door closes…

  2. Scott, I'm so sorry to hear that. 🙁 I could say a million things right now but none that would ease that "this really sucks" feeling. Usually, I would just give one a hug…an e-hug is not quite as comforting but here's one anyway ==0== My heart goes out to you and your family…I know you really wanted this. Something even better will come of that, I'm sure 😀

  3. Scott,Although we don't know each other, I've enjoyed following you on Twitter and your perspectives (esp on health care). I agree with Shannon, where one door closes the Lord opens another. And that's how i'll pray for you and your family.Bobby Arkills
