Hello New Year

Wow! What a year it has been! I couldn't remember my password and it was connected to another e-mail so 3 months later I can finally post again. I had a wonderful New Years with my friend Patty and her family and am so glad to be teaching again! I feel like I have purpose again and I love seeing all my former students faces around! Christmas was great too. This year has been a year full of adjustments but a good year so far. I have some wonderful friends which helps a lot. The Father is good.

I finally have Internet and am so thankful for two teammates who have taken me in. I eat dinner with them once a week and it is so much fun. I am also meeting a lot more families and realizing how BIG the foreigner community is. I am learning more and more that no one is perfect and that we all struggle in someway to control our lives instead of handing it over to the one who gave it to us. My goal for this year is to be more FOCUSED. It is so general but more specifically to focus on pouring time into my teaching and a study with two girls. I don't want to be super busy and am sad that I probably will not be taking language next semester. i really love the teachers and staff there and hope to take more in the future. If I am only teaching 4 hours until the end of march I might take it for one month 3 times a week but we will just see:)

Hopefully, I will be able to update you on more of my adventures now that I have internet!
Thanks friends!
