I Shall Go!

After more than 2 weeks of praying, seeking advice, and more praying – I’ve made the decision: I am going!  But no it wasn’t going to be easy, especially with bringing closure to my responsibilities here – one of the biggest is that I am a leader in church and will need to find people to take over.

Also, while I was originally meant to work in Boddington as an Instrumentation (or Control Systems) Engineer, I will now be working in the Electrical field.  I had hoped to get some Inst experience rather than just Electrical alone, but I was reassured that I will get some Inst experience anyway.

In the last 2 weeks I had been sending updates to my friends.  This was the latest email:

Sam’s Relocation – Update 5

Dear friends,

The following email is hot-off-the-press (today 3:20pm) from the Regional Engineering Manager to various people in the AK organisation:

<removed>, can you facilitate this locally for me, this was the role you, I and <removed> was discussing for <removed>, replacement for <removed> in the office.
Sam is an excellent Candidate for this task, he has a good skill in software and I am sure would adapt to the role both with energy and technical ability. Sam has indicated below what period he can be made available and we have had all the discussions this end, so your help is required in getting the Project, site and office teams to accept Sam. He has been on Boddington for all of the VPP packages in Melbourne so well versed in the Project on the Electrical side, this will give him a great opportunity to get involved with the system and data communication side. If you need a CV please let me know, I will facilitate this end on <removed>‘s behalf while he is in Santiago.
Please let me know if you need anything else.
<removed>, <removed> FYI

The wheels are in motion…

Take care and God bless,
