The Browns – Tom, Ali, Crescena, Bez, & Ber

Tom just completed a 3-day course on Crisis Management and Inter-operability with 19 other leaders from our, and another like-minded, organization. One of the key skills needed in a crisis is the ability to recognize a change in the circumstances and adapt to the new reality in an effective way.

It’s actually a good comparison to life in general, and something that we all do on a minute-to-minute basis without even thinking about it. Sometimes though, these changes are significant enough to warrant significant thought and that is once again where we find ourselves as a family.

As you know, Tom was appointed the AIM AIR Acting General Manager back in December 2015 while the leadership at AIM worked out a longer-term plan. We came into that role totally surprised

and fully expecting to move back out of that role after a year or so when a permanent General Manager had been identified. As it would turn out, Tom is actually the one who has been chosen to be the permanent General Manager. We were approached a few months back and asked to stay in this role long term. We requested some more time to seek the Lord, get used to this role and get a better idea of what it entails and whether it would be a good long term fit for Tom and for our family. After a few months of praying and seeking counsel, we told the AIM leadership this past week that we would be honored (excited?) to accept the role!

The significance of this change has a few implications for our family. First, Tom will be the first permanent General Manager AIM AIR has had for 4+ years. While the last 5 months have allowed some aspects of the role to be established, there is still a lot of work to do in sorting out all the aspects of this role and the day-to-day of the job. Second, we agreed to a four-year term in this role, at which point we will all re-evaluate to see how God is leading AIM AIR, and our family, for the next season. So, while we will visit the US on Home Assignments during that time, we expect to continue serving with AIM AIR for at least the next 4 years.

Thankfully, these changes are not the result of a crisis nor do they put us in crisis, even though it means adjusting to a new reality. Thank you for continuing to pray for us as we seek to be obedient at each step along this journey on which He is leading us.
