I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! The school year is finished. Whoa it is nuts how fast it all went. So much has happened in the 9 months of crazy. Three of the oldest students graduated and are off to new adventures. In September I hear we are having at least 4 new students. In September, who's going to be the new kindergarten teacher with all these new kids and 3 returning kids? I am. Ahhhh! I will be with more crazies! Three of the kids that are coming back are Milagros, Yahir, and Juan Jose. Those three alone are a handful ha so we'll see what next year brings.
I know during this past school year God was preparing me for what is to come with the class that I had. I really had everything in my class, good and bad. My first year teaching was insane! So many tears of sadness, joy, and exhaustion. Through it all God was with me in every single step of the way.
Its comforting to know that He knows I can do this. I pray that these kids see Him through me or through how I communicate and teach to them.
I have about 3 months home. It is a good time to rest, get ideas for teaching, talk to those of you that support me, pray, share His passion for the unreached people groups and His passion for us all to be involved. We can all be part of His mission of reconciliation.

We were on our way to church in Ensenada the driver was going a little to fast and lost control. We all are completely fine just with a few bruises and a bit of soreness it could of been a lot worse. Obviously God is not yet done using us and still has a plan for our lives. There's nothing greater then the feeling you get when you know God has your life in his hands.

Tonight is one of those nights I am amazed at how big and mighty God is and how small I really am. It is such a comforting truth. Sometimes we need to be reassured that everything is going to be OK. And while I stopped and looked up into the night sky He reminded me to not worry and that He knows each star by name.
His love is strong.
His love is strong.
