Hello! My name is Rachel Faust, and this is my first year teaching 4th & 5th grade here at Immanuel Mission. I moved here from Western Washington State in August and have been gradually adjusting to the very different weather and climate, being far away from my family, and country life. Teaching has been exhausting (and overwhelming at times), but also very rewarding! I love watching my students learn new things and grow in their skills and capabilities. God has been teaching me to rely more on Him and less on other people, which has been such a blessing because drawing nearer to God in close relationship is truly the best thing in life!
