Getting Real

In this past week I have had to stop my self and think is this real? Am I really dropping and leaving the comfort of everything back home to move to a third world country that is just starting to pick up the pieces from a natural disaster that happened almost 5 months ago? And the answer to that is all YES. Things are really getting rolling, just applied for my new passport, I found out that I am for sure teaching and that it will be grade one, which is exactly where I want to be. It all getting real and three months isn't that far away!

Today marks the four month anniversary of the "quake." I have not forgotten, have you? Deep below the rubble that still sits there to this day, was and is a beautiful country, with people who are just as beautiful, wanting a chance in life. That is why I have chosen to move to the country I love, and help give children of all ages a chance, to love them, to help them become what ever they want to become, to know God. Come September I will be teaching in this country, doing what God wants me to do, and what I love. And from here on out, this will document the next year as I prepare, I teach, I learn, I come close to God, as I live.
