Rain, rain, go away...

Almost two months? Really? Where has the time gone?

I feel like I have been in some sort of time warp (and I'm not talking the Rocky Horror Picture Show).

Since my last blog I have graduated college and started teaching ESL with a Korean minstry for the summer.

Let's say that again. I graduated. I accomplished a huge goal. I made it through. And that was definitely not without the strength and grace of our loving Heavenly Father, and the support of my dear husband, Jake. Many others, including my parents, have been an encouragement along the way. I almost didn't go back for my second year, and here I am, with a diploma of BRE under my belt. God is definitely a God of love.

The teaching has been going well. We're on the second week now, and both myself and Arleen are teaching one class. We only have four students, so it makes the workload a lot easier. Since I did this last year as well, it's nice to have some notes and useful tips to make things run more smoothly. Some of the exciting activities we have planned for the students are a trip to a clay and glass gallery, visiting a donkey farm, and ice skating at the local arena. I hope they will enjoy their time here. They have been staying in Toronto, and find it a little bit boring. (I can't imagine what they think of this place!)

In other news, it seems as if the rain will not let up. I am looking forward to feeling the warmth of the suns rays upon my skin once more. I went to Canada's Wonderland with Missy et al two Sundays ago and my face got burned. Well, that's long since gone. We have been spoiled, only to be blasted by the icy frigidity of the bitter winter winds once more.

I long for travel, and adventure. And my Jake needs to get out of the factory he feels so trapped in. Please pray that God will show us our next steps, and that on our way, we won't lose sight of the ministry opportunities around us.

Love,
Ashleigh

Hi Ash
This year has been moving along far too quickly but at least you have had some great accomplishments so far.
It was great day when we were able to be there with you to celebrate your graduation from Heritage after the years of study you have put in and all that had taken place during that time.

God is good and greatly to be praised!
So glad that you can be teaching again and that it is going so well.

We continue to pray for both you and Jake as you continue to wait on Him for the directions that He has in store for you in the days ahead.

Much love always NAN XOXOX
