Things Are Looking Up!

So, last Wednesday was a tough day! We had the day off and I had a lot of time to sit around and think of nothing else but coming home to America because things here are tough, and I stated the hardships in my previous blog post! By Thursday though, things already started to turn around for us!

I got a chance to talk to the director of the school and tell him that I needed more help in my classroom! He is going to try and higher me an assistant, which is highly needed! Its hard to entertain and control 14 children by myself. Luckily I haven’t had to deal with that many children due to some children being absent, but the numbers of children I have on a daily basis are still a lot 10-12 tops! So, that is awesome that I may be getting full-time help here soon!

Another plus, Jonathan and I got internet at our house! We bought this antenna that reaches miles away for signal and we attached it to this 6 ft. tall PVC pipe on our roof! It worked… We now can reach free Wi-Fi from this shopping center that sits about a ½ mile away from our apartment complex! We are so very excited about this, because this was a huge burden not being able to connect to people on a regular basis! We are just so glad that things are working out!

I knew Father had a plan; I just had to be patient! It’s apparent that it takes time to adjust to a new culture/language, and a different way of life. I feel like I have had some really down days, and though I think that is normal and just comes with the process to get settled to a new place, I need to have patience with myself and how slow things run around here! Life is a process, and living it is a privilege even if I can’t see that during the process! At least time has taken its tow to open my eyes to how grateful I am to be where I am, even if it does seem unpleasant during the transition! Thank you Papa for walking with me even on my worst days!

This is my first comment on your blog. I really enjoy your posts and your honesty. What you're going through in Costa Rica really resonates with me. Right out of college, I lived in Brazil for 6 months. I think what you are going through is completely normal! I hope you have a great time in Costa Rica!

Thanks for coming by again Erin! I am beginning to enjoy everything that Father has to offer us here! It took a while to adjust, but its going to be quite an experience and will look back someday in amazement!

Sparrow Girl! Thank you for coming by! Glad you enjoy my blog posts! Have been pretty slow at writing these days because of how busy things are here in Costa Rica! How cool to hear that the things I am going through resonates with you too! Isn't that cool how God will put people in our paths who are on similiar journeys we are on or have been on before! Incredible!

Again, thanks for stopping by!

Many Blessings!

In Freedom, Nicole!
