the past few weeks..

September.29.2009

Since I’ve last updated, we’ve had many events happening in country. The New Year (2002) came to greet us on September 11th, and with it came many visits to people’s homes. We were invited to drink coffee with them, eat lunch/dinner with them, as well as have a great time. Here’s some proof of the great time I spoke of.

I finally did take some pictures of who/what I have the privilege of walking past every morning/afternoon.

School started this week and I began teaching English Grammar and English Reading for 3rd through 7th graders. It is interesting and good in very different ways than teaching in America is – the whole language barrier adds an interesting challenge but the children are beautiful and loving nonetheless. Here’s the awesome view from an upstairs window at the upper grades campus of the school.

Also, few days ago, we celebrated a roommate’s birthday. We all went and made coffee bean jewelery – it was a blast.

The past month has been a great time to get acclimated to the altitude as well as the culture. The Lord has been faithful to show himself to me at a place on the opposite side of the globe than I usually talk to him at. Continue to pray for our God to show Himself among the people who have lived here all their lives, as well as the people who have come here to love them. I love and miss you all.
