[sword-devel] Moving on from Crosswire...

I wanted to clarify a few things so that rumors do not abound here about
the where abouts of David Trotz.
It is true I have taken on a new job at Olive Tree as a senior software
engineer. It is also true that I have been asked not to work on mobile
device front-ends for Crosswire while at Olive Tree. This request I felt
was perfectly reasonable and something that the Lord had laid on my
heart as well prior to the request. In fact I went a step further
because I felt that while I am employed at Olive Tree I should refrain
from any activity at Crosswire in order to keep the relations between
Crosswire and Olive Tree as agreeable as they have been in the past. The
last thing I want to do is cause any kind of schism between the two
parties, I mean after all we are all on the same team.
While I realize that this decision I have made does not line up with
everyone's philosophies or ideals, I ask that you try to understand that
I honestly and whole heartedly felt the Lord call me to Olive Tree. This
was not a decision I (nor Olive Tree) made overnight. It is something
that has been brewing since January of 2008 and I have been praying
about it ever since.
I pray the Lord continues to bless Crosswire's efforts in bringing the
Word to a new generation of believers. Should I ever find myself leaving
Olive Tree I would love to come back to Crosswire and pray that I would
always be welcome.
I have made many, many friends while at Crosswire these past 9 years,
and you guys will always be my friends. We can still chat like we always
have and I do plan to drop into #sword from time to time just to catch
up with everyone. Crosswire will always be dear to my heart.
Troy... its been a pleasure working with you. You are a great leader,
and I have always appreciated your heart for the Lord and His work.
