Sorry I know it’s been awhile (Nikki) J
Things have been pretty crazy here as we just finished celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Youth With a Mission. Everyone worked really hard to put the event together, and it turned out really well! Lots of celebrating was done, and it’s been really cool to hear about how much God was moving in the hearts of many of my students during this time. 2 friends from my time in SBS came to visit during the week from California and B.C. It was so nice to see them and have a little reunion.
This week we are studying the Psalms..such a beautiful book! I can hardly believe we only have 3 books left to go before Christmas break! My students are doing really well for the most part, some are still having some rough days, but in general they are not complaining as much so I take that as a good sign! I’m coming home for Christmas in less than 2 weeks and can hardly wait to see everyone…I’ve been doing a bit of Christmas shopping for my nieces and nephews, it feels really strange to be Christmas shopping in the heat. I can’t wait to get to the snow and have a real Christmas!
