Wow, this would be my dream job! However, I don't have the great skills and backgrounds that the other commentators have. I'm just an administrator and I love connecting people. I believe in your mission and feel that it's the only way to go. Without Jesus we have nothing. Whether or not this job is for me, I wish your organization continued success.
