Last Day at Kids Club

I don’t know if I should be happy or sad that it was my last day at work at LCI Kids Club. I guess there’s a mixture of feelings. I feel sad that I had to say good-bye to all of my kids I have been teaching in the last 5 months. I gave them all hugs and told them I’m going to miss them a lot! I feel sad that I won’t be working there anymore after today and I wasn’t able to complete my contract with them.
But…I feel happy and excited about the exciting new challenges God is going to do within the next six months of me being in Korea! I know that God isn’t finished with me yet and he has great things in store for me for the rest of my time here! Within the last couple of weeks I have been stressing out because nothing was settled for my new housing for my new job, even up till today (the day before I have to move out of my apartment)!
My faith is being tested over and over again during my time here in Korea. God is teaching me many things which includes to let go and give it over to Him!! This is much, much easier to say then to live it! Today I received amazing news! Around a month ago one of the ladies from my home church in Canada (Christian Life Centre!) told me about a lady (Lisa) who has been attending our church for a couple of months and in February she is coming back to Korea with her two daughters! They came back this past weekend and I had dinner with them today! Even before I mentioned about my housing situaiton she invited me to live with them! As we were talking, I felt a real sense of connection between us and I felt a peace that this is where God wants me to be. I felt so blessed as she was sharing her heart of passion for God and for missions! So…we contacted my new school and asked them if it would be okay with them for me to live with them and an hour later they phoned back and said it was okay! God is so good!! I get to live with a Christian family that has two wonderful girls for the next six months! I will move in tomorrow early afternoon!
Please pray for my trip to Japan! I will fly out to Osaka on Thursday March 2 in the morning at 9:50am and return to Seoul on Friday March 3 at 5:15pm. I appreciate your prayers so much as this trip is a major step for me to take because I have never been on a trip to another country and back again totally on my own before. I feel very anxious and nervous. Please pray that everything goes well with getting my work visa, transportation, staying over night, etc. Please pray that this trip God will bring me closer to Him, I would feel His peace and I will feel His presence in a more real way then ever before! 
Thanks for your prayers!
P.S. I just wanted to add a note to say I miss everyone back at home at CLC my home church! Lisa and I spoke about you guys and I really do miss you a lot!! Thanks for being my extended family! Hugs from me! 🙂
