an answered prayer...

I recently began praying that the Lord would provide someone to come and teach me spanish every week at my house. I know that I need to learn the language, but being home with Anna all day doesn't permit me the luxury of being out with the people and practicing spanish. We've been here 9 months now, and it never occured to me to pray for this. But a few weeks ago I began asking the Lord, and you'll never guess what happened last Sunday?

Isn't that just so like our God? He knows what we need, and I'm sure it delights Him so much to hear us pray for just those things... knowing that He is going to provide and be glorified! Anyways, one of the moms at church, who is a teacher and speaks fluent english, asked if she could come every Wednesday evening before service to spend an hour teaching me spanish! YAY!!!

We had our first session last night, and it was awesome! She is going to draft a plan for me, with goals, and I have homework! :( I am so excited that she wants to help me, and I just know this will turn it around for me! Thanks Jesus!

That is so exciting! It really is encouraging when God answers prayer like that, isn't it? I KNOW He cares but it seems like I'm in awe every time there's an answer to prayer, lol. I'm so glad for you!

God bless!

It's so easy to forget to ask, isn't it?! I find myself worrying about this or that and I'll stop and think, what are you doing, just ASK for what you want, and give it to Him! He is so good! =)

I'm glad the Spanish lessons worked out for you - that's great!

Hola!

I love that language too - my hubby speaks it fluently.Maybe he'll teach me when we have more free time. Good luck with your lessons and you'll definitely learn it fast coz you are in a spanish speaking country.You can practice it alot by just talking to shop clerks and so...;)

I happened upon your blog today. I love your designs. Sort of wish I had gone with a Blogger blog. Maybe upkeep would be a little easier. I'm new to the blogosphere and a fellow "sister" in Christ. Blessings!

How's your lesson coming?

I have been trying to learn for a while now. I know the words but constructing the sentence was the hardest part.

Hope it's going to worked out for you.
