Well, I figured it’s about time I share some exciting news with you. I’m back in China. The whole decision-making process surrounding going back was rough. It took loads of trust and recognizing what God was asking me to do with this season of my life. I’m excited I said yes to this opportunity and am ready to glorify God through it. I’m back doing a similar thing to what I did during the 2012-2013 school year – teaching English, learning Chinese (which I need to get serious about this go round!), traveling, and just enjoying life with wonderful people.
I’m thankful that in a time where I was unsure of what I needed to do next, God opened the door and made it abundantly clear that this is where he wanted me to be. Someday, I may write about some of the ups and downs in the process, but for now, know that I feel great.
This time around in China, it’s different than the first. I’m in the same city and at the same school, so there’s a sense of familiarity. In some ways it feels as if I never left, but in other ways it feels like I’ve been gone for years.
I got to my seat and there was no one in my row. I assumed whomever was to sit by me was still boarding. As we prepared for takeoff, I realized I was going to be the only one in the row! Mine was the only row with empty seats, too. How awesome!
