Was that a puff of white smoke I saw?

The Oregon Conference has asked someone to be its new President; he's asked for a week to think about it . . . and that's all I'm going to tell you for now.

Friday AM: Okay, here's the press release:
Oregon Conference Invites Al Reimche to Serve as President
The Oregon Conference executive committee voted Thursday February 19, 2009, to invite Al Reimche to serve as the next Oregon Conference president.
The Oregon Conference executive committee voted Thursday February 19, 2009, to invite Al Reimche to serve as the next Oregon Conference president. Reimche would fill the position previously held by Don Livesay, now Lake Union president. Reimche is currently serving as the Vice President of Administration at the Oregon Conference.
Max Torkelsen II, North Pacific Union President, commented on how the day went. “I felt the meeting was Spirit led and that the process went very smoothly. We paused several times throughout the day to pray, together and silently.”
Bryce Pascoe – North Pacific Union Executive Secretary. “I appreciated the high level of participation on the part of the committee members. The Lord has led in the outcome. If we have to lose a Secretariat member of the Northwest team, I am pleased to have him as President of the Oregon Conference.”
David McCoy – "We saw the Lord work and His direction was truly felt. After we would have prayer and come back together, it felt as though our path was guided."
Throughout today and last Thursday while the nominating committee met, Oregon Conference staff rotated through offering a continual season of prayer for God’s guidance and blessing on the committee members and their efforts.
Al Reimche and wife Beth will be prayerfully considering the offer and notify the Oregon Conference of his intentions to accept or decline.
I ask that you pray for Al and Beth that God will impress upon them His will.
