Experiencing the World!

dsc002842mail1WOW!

Is all I can say!

 In two days, I feel like I have traveled every climate and country in the world and its largest city all under one roof.  I was overwhelmed and amazed all at the same time. I met a variety of people who were all willing to help a newbie on its way to the next level of education internationally.

Little did I know that the one country I wanted to see and was supposed to be at this job fair did not show up, and…..this was the #1 job fair of the year, therefore very competitive.  I interviewed with 8 different schools in 6 different countries and still waiting to see what door God opens!  Even though I have many years of experience teaching, I have no international school experience and being single does not help.  These schools look for internationally experienced team teachers to help with housing costs and security of lasting commitments.  Interviewing with so many schools really made me think about where I wanted to live and how I would like the climate.  At first, NO way was I going to live in the snow but then I thought why not and how do I know that I don’t like it.  I definitely have only experienced snow for about 2 weeks at one time so I don’t really know if I would like it or not.  From this, I decided I should leave all options open and walk with a open mind and grasp new adventures and live life to the FULLEST.  Plus the fact that each contract is for two years only so I thought I could live anywhere with that.  So what is my plan B?  I don’t really know and I am trusting the Lord that He has a plan for me.  I also know that God knows what is best for me and He will never put me in a place that would not be beneficial for me or His plan.  So I don’t have a job overseas yet but I believe I will have one soon. Not sure when or where but in the mean time,  I’m going to live life to the FULLEST where ever I am.  

 

I am excited about Saturday because it will be my 1st birthday celebrated in the nations!!  Whoo. hoo..However, I am a little sad because it is also my mom’s 70th birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAMA-I LOVE YOU!)

I return to the states on Sunday and work on Monday.  Also, I realized this week that I have an amazing school and class where I teach currently and I really miss my babies a lot.

Please pray for continuing safe travels and favor of the Lord.  

Especially pray for an easy transition back to work and my class on Monday and for my kids to transition easily back to me!  Thanks for all your prayers and support.. Love ya..
