Revisiting My Calling

A few years ago, my school went through major changes in staff.    The leadership changed.  Good friends left.  New people came in.  I found myself asking, “Should I stay or go?”   During that time, I wrote these two posts:

Today I am still living out this call.  On Monday, God willing, we will start our new school year.  I will have five math classes that I am excited to teach.    I will already know some of my students,  and others will be new to me.  I am ready.  Maybe someday God will point me in a new direction but for now this is where I am suppose to be.  
Even though the last few years have been hard, I am glad that I stayed with the calling God had for me.  I have grown spiritually, wept a few tears, and made a few mistakes but have also been a part of something amazing.  
As our team goes through many changes this fall, I was reminded of the above posts and how they relate to our current season here in Central Asia.  Dear friends are moving in a new direction.  It is hard.  Things are uncertain.  It would be so easy to question if I should be here or what will happen.  But this one thing I know, God is not finished with what He wants to do with me here in this place.  It may not make sense.  It may not be easy but this is where I need to be.
