The last post I put on this blog was 3 months ago and it was asking for a teacher for our kids. It has been a busy 3 months and through it all the Lord has provided a teacher for our kids! We are so very excited to introduce you all to Samantha Carr!
She heard about our need for a teacher through one of the kids old teachers, Jessica Peschka (Wease). Jessica taught the kids for the 2009/10 school year.
Samantha comes from Michigan and loves to be involved with kids. She has a heart for missions and saw this as a great opportunity to serve the Lord. She will be with us until May 2015.
We are very excited to be picking her up from the airport in just under 36 hrs from now!
Please pray for Samantha as she adjusts to the Philippines, the heat and of course to our crazy family.
She gets a week in Manila with us and then we head north and just a few days later she will move into the village with us. It will be a long 2 1/2 months living in the village for her. Pray for her adjustment to living there.
Pray also as she jumps right into teaching the kids. We have already started the school year and with 4 weeks of no school by the time we get back they will be eager to get started again.
Thanks for praying.
