Cincinatti update

Our family has been living in a job security flux for longer than I wanna think about. His current employer is closing up shop and moving to Cincinatti. He was told he would still have a job....months ago. We've been waiting for the offer.

so you sitting/stalking and want to hear?
yesterday the hard job offer came in from his current employment about the move to Cincy. It was total junk.
well, hubbo came home at lunch to grouch and deservedly so. I tried to get his mood to shift, you know me, "Praise the Lord we know we don't need to be with that company" yadda yadda
I tried, but you know, he went back to work still grouchy. Once there he was talking to the guy who was going to make the move with him and be his new boss (we really like this guy) and Rick was just floored at the backhanded slap that was the job offer. So as they were talking about get, getting more and more annoyed and just about where he got fed up........................a phone call came in for tech support from the company's leading USA competitor. So Hubbo is talking to the guy and being guarded with help, cause it's the competition after all, he finally asks "off the record, what do you guys do?"which leads to a good long conversation, and a few interesting tidbits. Like they are hiring, and expanding. The fellah gives Hubbo all the names and phone numbers he would need to talk with
It would be ALL God to, cause you know, aint it just a curiosity that it's the one company My husband never sent his resume to?
It gets better.
The machine he was giving tech advice for(did I mention he is literally the only man in the usa who knows these swedish made machines inside and out and that's why we expected a MUCH better offer from his current employer? It will cost them 30g a month to bring in equally knowledgeable people from Sweden), is the SAME machine the sales guy dropped the ball on back in December.
Hubbo has jumped through a million hoops for this company trying to make the company actually help its client and the client knows it. All of the clients are like that, they specifically ask for him because of the efforts he puts into his job. 'Cause he does go the extra mile, and the clients know the fall outs are not him.
So, it would be great if he got on there, and it's likely a good deal of clients would follow him there. Hubbo hates having his name associated with a company that treats its clients so poorly. This new place is family owned and Christian to boot! Their work goal page thingy is packed with scripture....AND it happens to be in the area we wanted to move to to begin with!

Not done yet
So Hubbo gets the hiring managers # right? The guy is out of the country right now, guess when he will be back?
June 25th, the day we were already going to be in the area on vacation. Isn't that like so totally cool?
Now if the company doesn't want Hubbo, well that's okay, but it would be so fantastic if this was the answer to our prayers and it totally changed his attitude an everything.
But you know me, I mean yall have been through this with me before where I thought something was gonna happen one way, and was let down, so I'm cautious on this one, you know?
If God wants this to happen, he will make it happen, in spite of everything;

Thats it inna nutshell.

So, would you all please pray for this job situation to be resolved soon? Living in this uneasyness is difficult at best and this company really does sound like the answer to prayer. It would be wonderful of you. Thanks
