God has been teaching me so much over the past several months. A lot has happened so I will try to briefly summarize what God has been doing in my life. After I got back from an amazing trip to Haiti in Aug. I jumped right back into working in childcare again here at the New Tribes Mission Missionary Training Center in Roach, MO. I worked in the Pre-school room and enjoyed it a lot. I enjoyed being able to spend four hours every morning with the kids and help them to learn colors, shapes, numbers and letters. I love how working with kids gives me such a big opportunity to invest in their lives and impact them. Working with kids has become an area that God has given me a huge passion for. I’ve known for a while now that I wanted to work with kids but I wasn’t sure if I should get schooling in that area and what kind of a degree I should get. After praying about it and getting advice from different people, I realized that it would be a good idea for me to go to college so that I could become better equipped to work in an area that I love. Then I started the process of looking at different colleges and degrees. Through a friend I heard about the Elementary Education degree and realized that this degree will give me a lot of options as far as working with kids. So right now I am planning on getting an Elementary Education degree at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. I have applied to go to Moody Bible Institute because I will be able to get this degree in just two years since they will accept my credits from New Tribes Bible Institute. I am excited about this opportunity that God has given me to become better equipped to work with kids. I have no idea what I will end up doing after I get this degree. But there are 4,000 different schools around the world that I could teach at, including Christian Schools, International Christian Schools and Missionary Schools. Since I am wanting to start Moody Bible Institute in Aug. 2012, that means that I need to save up more money to be able to go. So I am moving back to Waukesha, WI on Jan. 16 so that I can work full time and save up the money I need.
This past semester has been filled with many opportunities to just Trust God. I am a human being and like to be in control of my life. So when God asks me to do something that I wasn’t planning on doing, I have a hard time Trusting God and doing what He wants me to do. Consequently God has been giving me plenty of opportunities to Trust Him in all the different areas of my life. Why is it so hard for us to Trust God rather than ourselves? He is the Creator of the Universe! So why not Trust Him with Every area of our Lives?! I hope this new year we are able to step out of our comfort zone and just Trust the Creator of the Universe in every area of our lives!
