So, if you know me in real life, and not just in blogging life, then you know that the past six months have been some time of super-crazy transition. We went from living in South Africa, to hiking a month in Spain, to traveling around the US and seeing every friend and family member, to… wait for it… Stephenville, Texas!! Which is the middle of nowhere.
We celebrated thanksgiving here in South Africa with 15 other American missionaries. Thinking back over this past month, I certainly have a lot to be thankful for!
David has a job teaching 8th and 9th grade math at Grace College, a local high school in Hilton.
The Jabulani Kids Club Christmas party was a success! We had over 260 kids (and a bit of a panic because we only had supplies for 200–but it all worked out).
I work with an amazing group of people. They inspire me everyday with their enthusiasm and dedication. We just had a fun day at uShaka Marine world as a reward for all successfully completing the 6 most important tasks we had in the past 6 weeks. We had lots of fun on the slides, and then some of the iThemba guys started playing volley ball in the pool (and managed to get all the kids singing and dancing and playing, too). One mother thought that we were a professional volleyball team!
Praise God for how he has provided for David and I in these past 3 months here in South Africa.
What are you thankful for?
