Seth, you sent us to the blogg on eight points.
I agree in principle with his eight points but I edited #1 and #7
1. Skip Bible school; instead attend a great university and become an expert in a field that the country needs so that they will ask you to stay after ten years.
7. Get a great job: Beware of support with strings attached and get a job that pays well based upon your expertise so that you stay financially free to be able to move with God.
