Isaiah 40:31 (New International Version)

31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Oh Rats!!!!!!

Or maybe I should say..."oh, RAT!" 

For the last few nights we have had a friendly visitor in our room.  I say friendly because for the most part we have left eachother alone, but this is about to change.  My friendliness has come to an end and I think maybe so will the life of this poor rat!!  I am a lover of all things, but when these things steal my sleep, I become frustrated and tend to take my frustration out on others.  This is something that I refuse to let happen.

Now, you might be asking, "What is it that Cheryl has in her room that is attracting this rat?".  I can tell you this, all that I have in my room that is worth anything, is coffee.  My friends will not be surprized that coffee is what I deem as most important :)....  So, unless this rat has been to Starbucks and has since become a coffee connoisseur there is absolutely nothing that I know of that would be attracting this rat.  Unless of course he has radar for white girls form Canada!!! Clearly he has no idea who he is dealing with.

Onto other things......

School has begun, and I am learning much already.  This is a picture of the school, where we will spend everyday from now until the second week of September.  I know that God has many things to reveal to me while I am here, for this I am excited.  This truth makes everything that is uncomfortable worth it....even the rat!

Mackenzie is doing well.  We have both had moments of frustration and times when we missed home very much, but all is well.  God is here with us and so we will draw near to Him.  Homeschooling is slowly starting, it is a definite learning curve for both of us.  Mackenzie is distracted easily by the little ones who want to spend time with her, and she has no complaints about this....anything to get out of school right???!!!  Here are some pictures of Kenzie and her following.......

More pics to come my friends.  For now, please pray for us and know that we are also praying for all of you.

Love the pictures of the school and children! Thanks for sharing. They are so very precious! I can tell that Mackenzie is making a difference already in the lives of the children. Sorry to hear about the rat. That would give me the ibbie gibbies. Hopefully that will get taken care of soon. Send me an email and let me know what I can send you.

Blessings to you and Mackenzie!

I too could not deal with the rat....rats and snakes are my nightmare :)

The pictures of the children are beautiful. I love that Mackenzie is already loving being the teacher/leader for these precious children.
