Well, it’s time for a major life change. I worked for MAP International as the Information Technology Director for 16+ years. I left to do my own thing, which is where I have been the last 6 years or so.
Well, I am back, as MAP’s new Director Of Business Information Systems (BIS)! I have been in discussion for a couple of months with MAP since their current director left about the possibility of rejoining the organization. It was during a couple of conversations with one of MAP’s board members (Thanks Chok-Pin)that I realized I did still have a lot of passion for what MAP was doing, and when I found out all the great work projects that would be there for me, I had to make the change. I officially started back there on June 3rd, but only on a part time basis to get my hands on what there is to do. I will be full time on July 1st.
Someone asked last week me how it felt to be back. My answer? “Feels like putting on a comfortable pair of old shoes”. I will miss working with some of the great clients I have had the last 6 years, but am looking forward to the change back to working in a global organization as part of a great team of dedicated Christian people.
Thanks to God for the guidance — he is in this move for me. Also thanks to those who helped me talk through this possibility. Nice to know there are supporting people around!
And thanks so much to my wife for supporting this move, she is my partner of partners, and I am indeed a lucky man!
