the last two months

a few weeks after John and I relocated to Indiana, we had a meeting with the youth ministry team and asked if there were any mission organization or projects in the area. Well a few names were thrown out, and one member said ," well hey there is OMS, but I don't know what they do."

If you know me personally, you know I basically take not knowing things as a challenge to know about the topic. #GoogleQueen  I really just don't like not knowing especially when the world is at my finger tips :)

So I Googled and I ogled at all the cool things I was reading on the OMS ( or One Mission Society) Website ( LiNK HERE). I did a general, " hey can I get info" email to their general email and I spoke back and forth with the cool team in Mobilization who invited me to come and check out chapel service. I toured the facility and met a few new faces but didn't know what would really come out of it.

In the weeks to follow I had some back and forth conversations but still didn't know what would be going on, until one day when I received a call that they were looking for someone to answer the phone at the reception desk a few days a week. At that point I got nervous that this might actually be happening, I would be working for a mission organization. A few days later I got a call asking if I might be interested in helping out in another way and if I could come by and meet their event coordinator to see if we might work well together.

TWO MONTHS LATER :)
I write this blog on the first day of OMS International Conference being hosted at Indiana Wesleyan University. I have been helping out since mid May spreadsheeting, taking registrations, and being a liaison for conference questions. The team of ladies I have been working with are extremely sweet and welcoming. I have utilized my computer skills ALOT and really come to appreciate all the check in's I have done for camps over the years.

Of course this is a prelude to the cool post I will be bustin out on Sunday or Monday as a recap of conference :)
So until then.....
