"You want me to be ambassador there NOW?.... Um, thanks?"
Going to be a difficult assignment. The whole middle east is a powder keg of
anti-americanism just waiting to explode. I hope they let the marines do their
job and secure our embassy there. We don't need another tragedy like the
one that just cccured in Libya.
Being Ambassador in a Muslim country today is liking walking a tight rope over a
huge unpredictable rumbling geyser. May he have both the wisdom and inspiration
to maintain our interests and develop great contacts who can become friends of
the U.S. and Church.
A dangerous but distinguished assignment. We will keep him and his family in
our prayers. There are lots of other jobs he could be accepting, with his
resumé...If only more good men would serve selflessly. I will
send out prayer requests to my Baptist church members and our Catholic community
also. May our Lord keep them safe.
(wish I could get DN to change my location to Cedar Hills, UT -- I've asked
them to). Anne Beecroft and fam are in my ward -- great people -- we will keep
Robert in our prayers, asking the Lord to keep him safe and to fill him with
wisdom to deal with these very difficult and dangerous times.
