When filling out the enormous amounts of paperwork for his Chaplain packet, my Bear discovered that there is a moral clause stating that a Chaplain Candidate cannot have any bills that are over 90 days delinquent.
Unfortunately, we have one.
We have a 20/80 split mortgage and while my Darling, hard working husband was temporarily out of work between his enlisted stint in the Army over a year ago, and the job from which he was just laid off in December, we fell behind on our 20% mortgage. We were on a repayment plan and fulfilling it, when he was laid off. Now the repayment plan is in default.
Now the Chaplain Packet is defunct.
For at least one year after ALL our past due bills are paid current.
He will then be able to get a moral waiver.
At which time, he will be too old to enter the military as a Chaplain unless he then gets an AGE Waiver!
Not to sound ungrateful; and knowing in my heart that God is still in control over the situation; but we never would have been in this predicament if the Army hadn't said that Bear needed to GET OUT of the military in order to fulfill his requirements to be a Chaplain!
I'm tired of this.
Why God, does it have to be so hard to serve where we believed that you wanted us?
