This school is a great school. Academically, it is one of the top notch international schools in Taiwan. Spiritually, it has a top notch staff- people that love Jesus and are filled with God's Spirit, sent here by Him to know and love Him more and make Him known. I look forward to getting to know them even more and working alongside all of them in this labor of love for His glory.
The past 2 weeks have been a whirlwind- filled with lots of meetings, questions, answers, Chinese, laughs, tears, food, fellowship and preparatory work. They've also been filled with constant reminders of God's faithfulness, provisions, and the sweetest thing of all...His presence.
There are some verses and a song that I have been reminded of that I will probably be clinging to in my prayers as this year unfolds.
A couple of the verses are (I'm sure there will be more to come this year!):
"Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to Whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen."
but to Your name be the glory,
because of Your love and faithfulness."
