Yesterday was my last day of Pre-Cert training and I passed all my skills checks! Thank God! I am excited about starting shadow training next week, it should be fun getting first hand experience. I'm looking forward to seeing my kids make improvements and learn more. I know it is always exciting when they have a breakthrough and start catching on to things - this will be a very rewarding job. I don't just want to help these kids improve their skills, but I am praying that God would touch their minds and help me to be a help and witness to them and their families. We must always remember that everywhere we go is a mission field, whether we are at work, school, out running errands, or anywhere else life might take us. We are called to be witnesses above anything else and we all need to do our part - it is our duty as Christians. If we don't show them the way, who will? Hmm, maybe the kids will like action songs like "this little light of mine." :)

Anyhow, I am looking forward to what God is going to do in my life and in the lives of these kids. I will update more as I go through shadow training next week! Have a good weekend + church everyone!

I know you don't know me but one day as i was reading my daughter's blog and not being familiar with the whole blog thing but I am learning because my daughter is traveling and of course i want to stay connected. Anyway I hit the next blog button thinking it was my daughters next entry and there you were. I just want to say how uplifting and encouraging your blog is because YES I am a believer! PRAISE GOD! THE MUSIC CAME ON AND I WAS PRAISING THE LORD! I feel the Lord tugging at my heart to pray for YOU. SO KEEP UP THE GOD WORK MY SISTER AND NEVER GIVE UP because you never know who GOD has praying for you.
Peace be with you,
