Well, it is about time that I post again...
First off Jason and I have a HUGE decision coming up soon with what we are going to be doing for the next couple years...Last Thursday we were offered two teaching job in Indonesia at the school Sekolah Pelita Harapan (http://www.sph.edu/). We have some time to think about what our final decision will be...but it does feel good to be wanted. :)Jason was offered a 7th and 8th grade humanities (History and English) position, and I was offered a 9th and 10th grade language arts position. We would be teaching at the school that is approximately 30 miles from Jakarta, Indonesia. It is a world-class Christian education facility, that offers education to Indonesian and expatriate children. The upper levels are taught using the I.B. curriculum. The term that we would be teaching there, would be for two years...which is where our thinking is getting stopped. It would be a wonderful experience, both personally and professionally. We have been praying and talking a lot about what we will end up doing, and we will keep everyone updated on what we finally decide.
Other than making that decision, Jason and I have been staying busy. We are both back in school so we can get our elementary teaching endorsements. We completed two graduate classes online in three weeks, and have one more class we are taking out at Corban. I am just finishing up my student teaching out at Faye Wright this week, and then Jason will start out there for the following 3-weeks starting next Monday. It has been a lot of fun getting to be there to see my dad everyday...but I remember why I don't like student teaching...lots of learning, but you are doing all the work for free...hopefully it will end up paying off in the end though. :)

We are also in a young marrieds small group through church. It has been so much fun getting to know so many other young married couples, and getting together with them outside of our group time. This Thursday we are going bowling with the group, so that should be really fun!

Well, that's all for now...please be praying for us as we make our decisions coming up here in the next couple of weeks. I know that God will take care of us no matter what, but I know we are anxious to start planning the next stage in our lives...whatever that may be :)
