Do You Believe in God?
Last March I finished teaching high school German levels 1 and 2. These were private lessons at the high school. We completed the textbooks and workbooks that we began a year ago. I knew in my heart that I should finish with my students and not try to get a new group going, but I didn't really know why, except that there really wasn't enough interested kids to make up a good-sized class. At the time, I believed I was being led by God, but I was left wondering what to do next.
Then last week I got a phone call about a part-time job at a private school. The principal had heard that I was available to help as an assistant teacher, primarily in the English department, and he wanted to meet with me. I was being offered the job first and I could choose my hours within the school time. I told the principal that I am a volunteer at the Blind Institute every Wednesday morning. He was fine with that. He also offered that I run a German conversational club (for a fee) at the school as there are a few German speaking kids who are getting rusty in their German. This had never even crossed my mind, but I told him that I would be interested.
The arrangement is that I work 3 hours a day, 4 days a week, not including Wednesdays. I start at 9 and finish at 12. The English classes that I help teach are grades 5 - 9. I'm also helping with grading and such, but because I'm employed for those hours only, I don't have to take any work home. My first day on the job was Tuesday. It's been lots of fun, because I enjoy this kind of work.
Amanda's playgroup is less than five minutes away by car and her class finishes at 12:15, so I pick her up after work. I also give a 45 minute Bible lesson for a grade 4 class at the primary school once a week from 7:30 - 8:15, so I can continue with this too. It's such a perfect arrangement for me in every way. I'm still amazed. I wasn't even asking around for a job. I'm so glad that I believe in a God who cares about the details of His children's lives. I'm very blessed.
