Happy New Year!! Plus a quote from one of my favorite movies.
I can’t believe we’re only days away from seeing children here! Even though our official start date is today, this is a slow week for the courts and realistically we’ll probably get calls on Monday. We have some staff starting on Monday (cook and 2 nannies) and will bring on additional staff as needed. In the meantime, lots of shopping – toiletries, groceries, additional bedding and bath supplies, etc. Will definitely keep you posted!
As I start the new year and looking back on the past few months, the hardest part for me has been being here on my own. Although God has brought me in contact with many new friends here, I often find myself missing my family and friends back in the States. But God is so faithful! Just this past Sunday, God again comforted me with His word - Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go - again reminding me that He is with me always, everywhere.
As always thank you for your prayers! More to come!!
