Some Office Help (see pictures)
A fellow missionary posted on facebook the need for some office help. I thought, "that would be something I could help with!” Her ministry gives out wheelchairs. Each person needs a medical report (showing their need), a birth certificate or ID, and a picture of the person in the wheelchair (once they receive it). I volunteered to scan these documents and woah - I'm looking at one of two very big containers - giving my scanner rest time after every two hours! But it's fun!
11 hours of flight time and
over 60 hours of driving.
I hope this will help you understand why we would love to see everyone individually or go out to eat, but we don’t want to ‘drive’ to do it! Therefore, please see our travel dates and locations below, mark your calendars, and drive over to see us (even if it is not your church or if our parent’s houses seem out of the way)! Thanks for your understanding. Be sure to get the month correct - we are in NH and CT in both JUNE and JULY!
Award Ceremony (see pictures)
Valerie, director of Nashville school, BB-ed me (instant messaged me on her Blackberry phone) that there was going to be an awardS ceremony for the students. I was nervous and excited to see how the 7th and 8th graders finished out their year having had three different teachers (I substitute taught for five weeks and about three more weeks during the year, they had their main teacher leave mid-year, and finished out with their current teacher). Four of the boys from 8th grade saw me can came over singing and gave me hugs. Unfortunately, many are taking recuperation exams – a comprehensive course exam for those who failed a class. A student can fail during the year and if they pass they recup, they pass.
“Why are you here, Miss?” they asked.
“To see you get awards,” I replied.
“We aren’t getting any awards…”
The 7th graders were not thrilled, although two got out of their seats to give me a hug. You could tell it was the last day of school. Mikayla, Rebekah, and I sat in the visitor seats and realized that all the kids receive an award for a character trait. Then, there were the additional awards of art, music, honors, high honors, etc. I was happy to see that two of the 7th graders received honors. I did not see many parents, so I hope it made a difference to them that I was there.
