He talked me into posting another blog.
Well, as you can see by the title of my post, Raoul has talked me into writing another blog. I really don't think I'll ever get into the habit of this. I'm simply not someone who journals. Ah well. I suppose the occasional blog will have to do.
I'm officially working at the student Y (a student Christian association) at the Tech full time next year. I've been going in part time, just a couple days a week, for the past several months, and I've really enjoyed it, so I'm very excited for next year! I can really see God working in the students I've gotten to know, and it's an amazing thing to see and to be a part of.
It's really a blessing to have a full-time job for next year, however, working at the Y is categorised as missions work, which means I won't earn a formal salary and will need to raise my own support. To supplement Raoul's income and to support my work at the Y, I'll need to raise at least R5,000 per month. As you've seen in Raoul's newest blog entry, we need to move soon, and we know that moving means an increase in the amount we pay for rent. We'll really need the support I raise to help pay for the increased rent and just basic necessities, especially because we're trying to save a bit and pay off debt at the same time that we're expecting a big rise in living expenses.
We know that God is faithful to provide (and it often tends to be a last minute sort of thing!). Still, please be in prayer for us, and if you would like more information with regards to supporting us, please contact us and we'll be happy to oblige!
