Well somebody up there must be doing something
Saturday, July 21, 2007
Interestingly enough I was looking back at some of the blog posts over the past couple of months. I do that every now and then just to see the flow and how our attitude or mindset has changed or remained the same. I had read the post I did right after the initial rumor came out that the first few agencies had heard that they had gotten all the ministries to sign off and were waiting the MOE to issue accreditations. As most may know we were very very fortunate and our agency was one of the that first group. Anyway the rumor was almost exactly a month ago (June 15th-18th).

So at that time I created some time estimates for when we might be hearing about a referral. Yea, those time estimates are one of my favorite things to do, I guess it's just the analyst in me. Well, I was a bit too excited by the news and thus made an overly optimistic estimate, so I restated my "Best Case" scenario the following day renaming the...

"This will happen if God comes down and places Her right hand on the back on the officials to help move them along Case."

And that estimate was...

  1. That Accreditations would be signed by end of June (check, it happen on June 27th)
  2. That the regions begin working with agencies mid July (check, that happen too)
  3. And that we'll see a referral the end of July/early August (well, that may happen too, I hope)

Well obviously God did come down and help the officials put the pedal to the metal.
