When going through the basic training experience I thought I was in the worst stage of our Air Force journey…OH BOY, was I in for a cruel awakening! Tech school is BY FAR much more difficult than Basic.  How you ask? I’ll tell ya! Basic was difficult because you couldn’t talk everyday and you constantly were wondering what your future Airman was up to BUT you always knew what to expect! Everything was laid out. You could almost always count on a phone call on Sunday, you would get a love letter a week, and you knew the exact day you would be together again. It was reliable. I’m a fan of reliability!

Tech school on the other hand is the opposite of reliable. We know nothing 99.9% of the time. The first part of Scott’s Tech training was a breeze! He went straight in after BMT [basic military training] and finished on time. This second part, he’s hung up on though, is not a breeze by any definition. He arrived at Goodfellow at the beginning of September and STILL hasn’t started. They haven’t even given an estimate of when he will start. There’s been no reason for the delay given and no hints have been dropped. It’s so frustrating. He’s just been cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, and I’ve been praying, praying, praying. We both don’t enjoy being apart but knowing the end would help. We were under the impression that we would be stationed together in December but with the delay it’s looking more like February or March. That seems so much unfairly longer.

Patience is still not something that comes easily to me, it probably never will, but God’s working on me. I’m gonna need to learn to be content with every step of this journey and learn to smile through the rain!

    Alyssa, the Lord who loves you and wants the best for you and Scott says, “I know the plans I have for you, saith the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you!” I’m glad you are learning to rest in Him and in His plans for you both. Not always easy, is it? We love you and are praying for you! In Jesus, Mom
