Where to begin this blog? I am leaving for Kenya in June. Many things come into  play during this current season. This is one of the worst seasons of my life to pack up during the summer and go on a mission trip. Why you ask?

I am a part-time, first year, English/Literature teacher. What does this mean to the outside world? Unlike most jobs, I will lose my job at end of the year. I am on a one year contract that has not and will,most likely, not be renewed. This means that I have to reapply for teaching jobs or jobs in general for next year.  I love my school. I love my students. The thought of leaving this school usually causes tears; the tears for missing my students and my co-workers. I am a control freak with no path for next year.  As the year continues, the Lord has given me peace of mind.

The mission trip is coming in the middle of the summer. This could happen when jobs are being posted and others are being hired. Not me. Not me you ask: I will be in Kenya.I will be following the call that I believe God has placed on my life. I am feeling peace with it.

The mission trip is coming, when we are not in the place to  afford it. I have to fundraise like crazy.  I am at peace.

I feel weirdly calm.   I am being obedient and God’s plan is awesome.

God is good. I am pumped. He will provide. Thank you Lord!

Romans 8:6 “For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace…”
