American School Bus

American School Bus

God totally took me by surprise today.  I counted up and I just finished a school year at my 7th school. I know, crazy for someone to have changed schools so many times right.  I have never heard of a teacher like me before and I wonder what in the world I am doing or supposed to be doing rather. LOL.  Anyway,  I did not know it but this school’s tradition on the last day was for all the teachers to stand outside and wave bye to all the kids on the buses.  I have never done this before so it was a new thing:)  During this excitement, I not only realized that I was waving bye to the best class that I had ever taught but also to American public schools.  I am not saying this in a derogatory way or that I will never teach in them again but it was a sweet, bitter, somewhat patriotic thing.  To me, it was heart moving that I was able to see sooo many kids of the same ages all leave school on the bus together and it was sooo cool to see a faculty united together in cheering them on but also to see that this maybe my first and last time to see all Americans kids riding on the big yellow bus from school.  I felt honored and special to have been able to experience that moment.  For me, it maybe a once in a lifetime !

Step One

This past month has been quite interesting as I have been packing my classroom materials and sorting through needed winter stuff that I think I might need in Korea.  I have been tossing the idea of shipping my clothes and mattress over or just being wild and adventurous and winging it when I leave for Seoul in August.  I have decided to ship my stuff  for several reasons.  The main one being I am not Asian and don’t have a typical Asian body frame and because I don’t want to necessarily start completely over when I don’t have to!  As you can see my belongings are somewhat organized, so that brings me to my prayer requests!

  • Complete organization of personal and teaching goods ready to be shipped asap
  • All paper work finalized and completed asap!
  • Perfectly prioritized plan of opportunities God opens up for me this summer!
  • Good steward time and financial management
  • Parents health as my mom recoups from her back surgery and my dad’s upcoming shoulder surgery in June
  • Transition to next level of teaching and missions on International level
  • Lifetime prayer partners and financial partners

Thanks so much for your prayers and your time!  Please update me on what’s happening with you so I can pray for you as well!

Always experience more of Him! Love you!!

PS..Please celebrate with me as the war in Sri Lanka has been declared over Finally!  Pray God will open the door for the Map 1040 vision of the orphanage, widow’s home, international school to come forth.  Pray for the finances to come in!!
