Ok, this is my first blog, so go along with me here.
I have so wonderful news! There is a chance that I could be teaching children in South Africa this coming summer!!!
My pastor is originally from there, and her sister remains still in South Africa. My pastor showed us a video of all there hard work with trying to fix up a school for these children. And my heart just completely went out to them. For years I have felt that I needed to be out there, on missions, specifically helping out with children. I spoke to my pastor about it and she claims that this would be an amazing experience and that I would be brilliantly suited for it!
I am currently in studying to be a teacher at the University of Windsor, so the debt is piling high for tuition (and visual arts is definitely not the cheapest of courses).
I am hoping to spend four months in South Africa (May-August 2010) helping setting up schools and teaching children. However there is one issue, because I will be away, I will not be able to work for my tuition for fall 2010.
So here is my prayer and my request from people:
I am asking for prayers that if is truly meant to happen that things will go smoothly.
Because of the single worry lining on money, I am asking for donations. Small of Large, I would be so grateful.
For years I have felt a calling to go and work with children, and work for the Lord. This just seems to have come at the most perfect time and to me seems to be the perfect opportunity.
I hope everyone is doing well and that you are feeling useful, where ever it is in your life.
Many many blessings!!!
