Dove Chocolate Discoveries--Do I Have to say Goodbye?

Hi everyone. I'm feeling kind of down today about the Dove Chocolate business. My last party was at the end of January for crying out loud. I have done so many things like advertise in a newspaper and carry catalogs with me and pass them out to people in the public whenever the opportunity arose.

A couple of months ago I was wondering about this business and had a clear understanding from God that I was not to give up on it yet. He provided me with return customer business, and helped me in other ways to show me to keep going on. Now I'm wondering if I'm getting the message that my time is ending. That would be really sad because I now have two people on my team--one in Hutchinson and one in Wichita.

I know with the economy in this town and all of the already happened layoffs and more potential layoffs to come, that people just don't want to spend money on chocolate right now and I can't blame them because I wouldn't either.

Dove Chocolate may be making the decision for me, because if I don't have a $200 party by the end of June, they are going to terminate my position with the company. I'm not the type of person who will pressure people into having a party for me--I just won't do it because I don't like to be pressured into having parties for people.

I'm already praying for wisdom and guidance, and I'm asking if you would please do the same for me. If I have to give it up, yeah, I'll be sad, but that just means that God has other things for me to do. But, at the same time, maybe something "miraculous" will happen in June!
