How Great Is Our GOD!

Well, one week down and we are both so excited to be here. The students have blown us away this week by how respectful and responsible they are. We have our problems with students that do not speak English but it is something that we will work on and soon be able to reach those students as well. Just wanted to share a little story that happened today at the end of the school day.My students were in Art class so I was running around trying to get things ready for Monday so I do not have to think about it over the weekend. I had just finished planning and was getting ready to run upstairs to the copier to make some copies when everything just started to hit me. I started thinking about this weekend and all the work we have to do to finish our apartment and how we are having friends over but we have no food to feed them so I need to go to the market Saturday but we do not have any cash on us (everything is done in cash over here) and we can't go to the bank to get cash because by the time I realized all this the bank had closed (it closes at 3 here). (I know this is a run on sentence but it will give you the effect of how fast my brain was going). So needless to say I was having a little bit of a panic attack, not a bad one but just a little one, and Josh did come along after he was done with classes and explain to me how we would get everything done (thanks darling!) After almost being on the verge of tears I gathered my things to get the rest of my work done. I also just needed to be around people and the Elementary secretary and I are close so it would be good to "run" into her. So as I started up the stairs I had no idea that middle school chapel was going on and as I rounded the corner to head up the stairs all I heard were about 50 middle school students singing the song "How great is our God, sing with me how great is our God!!!!!" I almost hit the ground. It was so beautiful listening to these students sing about how great the God they serve is. It was also a great little reminder that our God is GREAT and He is bigger than any little panic attack I have :)So I guess that is a little longer than I thought but wanted you all to know how we are doing and what is going on in our everyday lives.

Love ya :)
