So you know...

Well, I am nearly completed my course at Vanguard. Only 4 more days of classes, and then I am free... well, sort of. I will still have to complete a practicum, but the actual time in class with be finished. Praise the Lord! But I am still alive! I am making it! :) I am very excited for next week, as my Slovak pastor, his family and a few other Slovak pastors are coming to Edmonton! I will only be able to see them for just a couple of days because I am headed off to Oklahoma! A friend of mine, who I met in Bible School in Germany, and her husband have offered to fly me down for a visit. It has been 6 years since I have seen Amy, and I am quite thrilled to be able to see her again. I am so blessed!

As I am sure many of you know, I am attending a course at Vanguard College (my alma matter). Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. This is a brutal and grueling course, but I have to keep my focus straight. I have to keep reminding myself that this will help open doors in Slovakia - that is my goal. If I want to teach in Slovakia, then I have to have this tool. It's been hard to stay motivated, but I'm trusting in God to get me through! Pray for me! :)

Return date????

I am frequently asked when I am going "home" to Slovakia. Personally, I think everyone is just trying to get rid of me, but that's Ok, I'll go for counselling later! :) My return date keeps changing, so it is hard to say definitively until I actually buy the plane ticket. I am taking a course now in May (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) at Vanguard College. This course will secure my position teaching Canadian Studies at the University in Nitra, Slovakia.

After that, I am hoping to return to Slovakia by the middle of July. But, speaking honestly here, it all depends on my finances. If God provides for me, then I will go in July. There is a summer camp outreach in the nothern part of Slovakia that I would very much like to be apart of, which takes place in the end of July. So that's what I am praying for, so please, join with me!

Officially In!

I have just been appointed officially as the first PAOC (Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada) Missionary to Slovakia! Yeah! After two years of talking with them, I am now in! So you can check me out on the PAOC website at - Missionaries and then find my name!
