October is a hard month down here. we have completed first quarter and are heading into the second half of our first semester. you start to feel like you finally have a rhythm going. everything is just starting to feel normal. for me it is a time when i feel like the burn out is reaching me. i am burned out from work, from social events, and from just trying to live in another country. when i am beat down i become focused on other things. i become distracted from God’s will. this is the time when i feel satan getting his footholds. luckily God gives us promises when we are completely focused on him.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2

i have officially turned in my letter to not return to Highlands International School next year. this is a decision that i prayed hard about and it was not easy to make. i am not sure what i am going to do next, but am praying about that decision as well.
