Deferred (Pleasure?)

Found out today the Trustees of the grant awarding body had a few questions about our application. As a result, they have deferred the decision until the next meeting at the end of July. This is a little unfortunate, as the training is now booked for the 3rd July and grant funds cannot be awarded retrospectively. It may be possible to fund the course from the donation of December '07, but I am inclined try and find another date to attend. This is probably the best solution all round, especially as I am now down to work on that day anyway.

This also means that we cannot yet pay for the insurance and are thus still unable take people on. Whilst I am enjoying pottering about on the allotment by myself (with the occasional bit of help) I really am frustrated at all these unexpected hold-ups to progress. I suppose it may be the Lord's will that things are held back for a while, though at the moment it just seems like the result of oversights and omissions.

Please be in prayer for me as I seek to amend and resubmit the funding app. Also pray for one of the following:
(a) that things will start to progress faster than the pace of a seedling-munching-mollusc
(b) that I will realise that this is how it is meant to be, and stop fretting so much.

If you think it necessary, you may pray for both!
