This morning I wake up and I am thankful. My Gods mercies are new EVERY MORNING and He is so FAITHFUL. This first month and a half have been such a HUGE learning experience for me. As a wife, a mom and most of ALL a follower of Christ and the calling that He has put in our lives. Don't get me wrong, its been a rough road for me personally, with homesickness and new surroundings, it hasn't been easy. But through all of the hard days I have experienced so far, one thing I know and hold on to are His promises and the fact that I know with out a shadow if a doubt that He has called us here and it is His will.
Funny thing is before we left the states I started a book study and it is through James. And in the very first part of James it says, "My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience." (James 1:2-3) It is funny cause while in the states I thought I wouldn't struggle much with the trials of being down here in another country but, I was wrong. Everything here is so different, not just the fact that I am now living in a foreign country but the fact that my ENTIRE day to day life is completely changed. Homeschooling has been hard in the sense of learning patience and it says that the trials will produce patience. Annyka has been patient with me through all the, "I don't know it is because the book says so, and how can you not understand it." I am not the sharpest kitty in the litter and honestly I feel bad that she has to have me be teaching her, BUT the Lord is showing me so much in this and everyday has it's trials in homeschooling but it's a blessing. So, little by little I want to share what the Lord had been teaching me and showing me in my study through James and living here in Cajamarca by His great calling and will for our Familia. God is GOOD and I am so BLESSED that His wonderful great mercies are new every morning!! Until next time,
