Living in Ottawa and Looking for God's Help and Mercy

I can't tell you how MUCH I appreciate your
prayers, advice and support.
I do feel that I have to impress, however,
how much French language plays here.
I live in Ottawa.
Ottawa is the capital of Canada, an officially bilingual country.
The job is a government job.
It is what is termed bilingual-imperative.
This means that even if I ace the interview
and am screened in to the next round,
if I fail the French test
I WILL be out of the the running.
I know this sounds crazy
but it is really true.
And one of my librarian friends,
who I emailed right away this morning,
has confirmed it.
She had an interview with the same organization a few years ago
passed the interview
but not the French test.
And so she was out.
**
BUT we know that God is a God who works wonders.
The wonder here is that I would pass the French test and the interview!
I am confident that I am good for the job
and am already researching the library, the strategic plan, and the organization.
But I am going to have to work super hard on French.
This worries me.
I thank God for all of you and your prayers.
***
I feel I must say it again
THANK YOU SO MUCH
for your support love and prayers.
I appreciate the advice and welcome all of it.
I take your prayers on my behalf
and the support you give me
seriously
and thank God for it!

Glory to God in All things.
