I am officially tired. Now I know that working with kids is tiring, no matter who or where you are. But it is even more tiring because my brain is working double time in another language. Today was especially hard as a few of the kids are very disrespectful. I know that it takes a while to earn respect, but it is just very frustrating when I speak to a child in a stern voice and they turn and laugh in my face.

Plus I think I may have a parasite in my stomach.

And I got some weird allergic reaction on my lips from eating mangos.

It seems the honeymoon phase is over. Real life has set in.

Please pray for me. Not that these trials would pass, necessarily. But rather that the Lord would give me strength and patience to face these trials.

God bless you friend, I will be praying for you. I get mango rash too, which is wretched because mangos are my favorite fruit. Hang in there, God is good all the time. You are an inspiration and your labor is not in vain. Lots of love,

Hey Katie! I'm sorry to hear that you are going through a tough time. Be encouraged that this time will pass, it has an end, and that end will be for the Glory of the Lord! I am praying for you! I love keeping up with your blog by the way ;)

In Christ's Love,
