Last Day at FedEx

If you’ve watched my activity on Facebook, you know I’ve attended some parties this week. I’ve also been packing up stuff, throwing out stuff, and generally getting ready to vacate my office.
It’s a bittersweet moment. This morning, as I pulled into the parking lot, I noticed the long line of trucks waiting to drop off their load of Christmas packages, and I thought, “Peak looks great this year!” Then a new thought, “They’re taking care of my retirement.”
Never thought much about retirement. Figured I would have to sometime. I’m not retiring because I’m tired, or I want out. FedEx is a great company to work with, and the Air Ops division has been a huge adventure.
I’m retiring, because we feel called to serve in the Lord’s Army, in Tanzania. This coming year, we plan on building a rainwater harvesting system for Tanzania Christian Academy, and next year, we plan to move to Tanzania.
We hope to develop an Adult Literacy program, and to do more rainwater harvesting projects, all with the ultimate goal of teaching people about the love of Christ.
So it’s bittersweet. Leaving a job I love, but looking forward to new and exciting things.
May God bless us in this new work!

  1. Here are pictures of our workgroup Christmas party, which was also my going-away party.
    You get a much classier party if you combine it with something else; and is Mary Harvey Gurley has anything to do with it, it’s going to be a classy party anyway!
