I'm also still trying to learn the names of all my students. Mind you, I teach Kindergarten through 8th grade. That basically means I need to learn around 240 names. Since I only see most of my students (K-5th) about once a week, this is a difficult task. Again, God, help!
Aside from that, like I said, I am enjoying being here, which is a huge answer to prayer! The last time I lived in Taiwan was very difficult for me, especially in the beginning. But these first 5 weeks or so of being here, I have seen so many of the Lord's precious promises fulfilled over and over and am sustained by His faithfulness.
One of His promises in particular that He has continually proven faithful in throughout my life is Psalm 68:6 (NLT)-
And He certainly has done this for me once again. He has placed me here in a great "family"- the Morrison family- which is comprised of my brothers and sisters in Christ. I love how God has His family spread out all over the world- so that in any country you visit just about you have a "family member" there. How cool is He?!
What a powerful, loving and faithful God we have! One Who answers prayers and gives and fulfills the desires of our hearts!
One final thought that I want to be careful to pray for over my students and the wonderful staff is found in a few verses I have come across in the last few weeks. They are:
1 Thessalonians 2:13 (NIV)-
1 Thessalonians 3:12-13 (NIV)-
