Job Update

If someone were to ask me, “what is the number one thing God has been showing you lately”, I would have to say one thing. No matter how we plan or think we have an idea of how things are going to turn out, we haven’t the foggiest idea.

These past few months I have been applying to teach in Hong Kong, China and Korea. Though I had several bites, they all fell through. Then a job that really comes out of no where is a job that I end up getting. I started a new job in the Cumberland County school system as an ISS (In School Suspension) coordinator. My current principal mentioned that if I did this for a while, then he would move me to a Social Studies position. So even though this was not how I intended things to turn out, I have felt at peace for the time being about my job and my salary has increased substantially.

Another thing is that I think God is helping me with balancing being firm and illustrating Christ’s love in a non-verbal arena. Though all of this is true, my heart is still for China. I may not know when The Lord wants me back, but I pray it will be soon. In the meantime I am about to start an ESL cert course online through the University of Toronto and furthering my Chinese studies by taking the HSK next month. I’ve been meaning to write this up for a while now, but I haven’t really been inspired to write. It has definitely been a hectic few weeks and I’ve been rather exhausted adjusting to such new elements, but thankfully God has been giving me newfound characteristics.
