Teacher for A Day

Another fun experience I had this fall was substitute teaching for a friend. She is an English teacher at a local private school and she had to miss a few days so the school let me come in her place. It was a great experience and I fell in love with the kids pretty quick :) Most of the kids are from other nations or have one parent that is Romanian and the other from another nation, such as Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Turkey, South Korea, America, Holland... very international! The school is run by Lebanese directors and so there is a lot of Arab influence. Most children learn Arabic as well as Romanian and English. It is great to see the positive impact that my friend is making with the kids and to realize what a special ministry being a teacher is.

This is a pretty cheesy picture, but its me trying to be as teacher-y as possible :)

"All that is not the love of God has no meaning for me. I can truthfully say that I have no interest in anything but the love of God which is in Christ Jesus. If God wants it to, my life will be useful through my word and witness. If He wants it to, my life will bear fruit through my prayers and sacrifices. But the usefulness of my life is His concern, not mine. It would be indecent of me to worry about that."
