This week is the first week back to school for my three kids! On Day #1 back, I got this email:
I’m school doctor Nino. teacher brought Anna in my office, she hit head at the table. Anna had little bump and bruise at her forehead, I put an ice pack for 15 min. As she was feeling fine, had no headache, dizziness, I let her go back to class. I just want you to know about this incident sincerely Dr. Nino
In broken English, she did well explaining what happened to Anna’s head. Anna is fine! This is an example of countless ways God is watching our little ones. I bring them to a mini-bus every morning and watch them drive into the city traffic, wondering how this is okay?! ? Part of our journey this year, as a team, is a deeper Trust in God. For me, a lot of this is about trusting Him with my children–for their safety, for their social and emotional well-being, and with their hearts. One way He has asked us to give up control is to pray to Him and to share our burdens with Him. He can carry it all so much better than we can.
Today, would you pray for the nine children represented on Team Green? They have all started back into the drama and stresses of school. We are all so thankful for the education that is here, but it is a daily release to trust what God is doing with these lives – in the middle of living in an overseas context!
