Hi there sweet friends!!! Well, WOW I am left speechless over here. When we decided to have a call I remember thinking I hope 12 ladies apply so we can have enough ladies for the team! We prayed over having a call in the first placed, and thought carefully over the process. We never EVER ever (like ever) could have imagined the HUGE response we had. Needless to say it is taking us a LOT longer to response to every single email that we have received both in my personal email and in the Illustrated Faith email, if you send in an application you will be hearing back from us (even the tough emails to write), it’s important to me that we touch base with each and every one of you… but that my friends takes time!! So we are still responding thoughtfully and you can look for another announcement November 2nd and 3rd.
Most of all I just wanted to THANK YOU for all of your kind emails. The stories I have heard and the pictures I have seen have just left Heather and I SO EXCITED to see what God is doing in this community!!! You guys have been so generous in sharing your personal stories and most throughout prayers and we can’t thank you enough. We really wish we could have a team of 14567 women lol (no guys applied this round, maybe next time!) but the truth is WE ALREADY DO!!! (That’s totally a random number, tho, we did receive hundreds of AMAZING applicants!) No matter who is contributing to the blog each week, we are a TEAM! A team that is spreading the word of God is a beautiful unique way and I look forward to seeing how our team grows in the next year!!
Love you all to bits and thank you again for the grace as we answer all these emails!!!
