This year has been the year of firsts. First-year of teaching (for me), 1st day in the classroom, two weeks later we had our 1stday of school outside and a week later we switched, and had our 1st-day of house visits. All of these changes due to following the covid regulations. This year has had a sense of “who knows what will happen next,” but through all of the changes, God has constantly provided the right resources and right ideas at just the right time.
Has it been a challenging year? It has not been without its challenges. For example, we as teachers have to pick what is the most important for the students to learn, because distance learning just takes longer than usual learning. But there is so much good that is coming out of it too. School wide we have Bible lessons being sent into the home; we have Chapels being sent into the home each week, and if you were wondering what you could pray for… yes pray that teaching will be effective and the students will learn life skills, but also pray that the word of the Lord would not return void, but it would reach not only the students but the families that are hearing the messages in their own homes. God is doing great things THIS year. 2020 is not a mistake. As Psalm 139:16b says, “All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
