Well, yesterday I talked with Duane Cross, the administrator of the school in Chile. I got some more details on my assignment at the school. I will be teaching English for 7th to 12th graders, as I expected (which is good, since they received some wrong information saying I was a history major!! Praise God I'm not teaching history!). I'll also be teaching 7th and 8th grade girls Bible. They are starting a Fine Arts Language and Speech program, that I will be setting up the first semester and then actually starting the second semester. This is a good thing, that I have time to set it up, since I actually have no idea what they're talking about! :o) And they've also asked me to be in charge of the yearbook this year. I did yearbook a few years in high school, but I really don't remember much. So that should be interesting!
So it's good to know what's going on, since I'm leaving in under 3 weeks!
Also, pray for me for the very beginning of my time. I originally wanted to leave in the beginning of July to have several weeks to settle before school starts. Then ABWE told me they want me to stay stateside for a missions conference and training week that starts July 15th. I don't finish until July 21st. So I bought my plane ticket for July 24th, to give myself a few days to pack and tie things up here. I will land in Chile the morning of July 25th. I just found out that teacher orientation is July 26th and 27th!! And classes start the following Monday, July 30th!! Talk about a rush! I'll have one day to unpack, get over jet lag, and settle! Yikes!! But, there's obviously a reason God wanted me to have those extra days in the states. Honestly, I'd rather be rushed when I get down there than be rushed leaving here. Emotionally speaking, I think it's better that I have plenty of time to wrap things up in NJ. If I felt rushed saying my goodbyes, it would be more difficult for me to settle down there. So God knows what He's doing. :o)
Ok, well, I'm going to wrap this up now. Just wanted to let everyone know what I've found out recently. More to come, I'm sure!
