The sooner the better

My girlfriend told me yesterday about a conversation she had with the president of the university in Mexico that she works for, and he told her that I should come and teach English for them in the Academia de Inglés in July. I don't know for sure how much they'd pay me, but it sounds like they would certainly pay me more than last summer when I was there as a student missionary, and he probably has some idea of how much I need to be paying to my creditors here. If I can work it out, I would love to go to Mexico a month earlier, as you can imagine. I miss my girlfriend so much. But there are still some things in the way. I may not be able to leave my work here earlier, they may not be offering me enough (he had to go somewhere far from the school right after their conversation, so we won't hear from him for a while I guess), and there are some other questions as well. So it is still up in the air. Here's hoping.

My girlfriend last Christmas Posted by Hello


As my imood says, I'm feeling especially blessed right now. I'm thankful for all God's blessings, from a place to stay and a job to my awesome girlfriend who I'll be seeing soon. God is so good. I want to grow closer to Him every day. I want to become more like Him and show His goodness to everyone around me. I want Him to change me into what He wants me to be. I am unafraid to go anywhere or do anything that He wants for me, becuase I know that He will be with me and will give me the ability to do it. My girlfriend and I both want to be missionaries. But whether that ever happens or not, I can't wait to see what God has planned for us!

My beautiful girlfriend Posted by Hello

Work, etc.

I have found work at a bookstore here in town, and I'm really enjoying that. I'll be working here until sometime in July, and then I'm headed for Mexico, where I hopefully will start teaching English this fall. As I mentioned to a friend tonight, I've never had a permanent residence outside the US before. I can't wait to see my girlfriend. I'm uploading a pic, for all of you who have expressed such great curiosity.

Going to Mexico isn't exactly the most popular thing with my family, since they may not see me for some time, but going there fits my plans both personally and professionally, and they know that.
