Colossians 3:17

live intentionally.

Monday, April 25, 2005


I'm sorry for those of you who are disappointed in my lack of postings since I have arrived here in Pakistan. No reason is good enough...except that I thought I would procrastinate and get to it over the long weekend. But, due to computer problems I was not able to check email while I was away and am just now getting around to that.

My time thus far has been good. Monday afternoon I had a meeting with the Director to talk about specific areas which I can best help out in. My schedule looks somewhat like this.

Mornings - Helping in the Elementary with Reading.
Afternoons - PE and for this last week Track Practice.
Afterschool - Class Team Building, Intiative Games or sports activities.
Weekends - Off Site Rock Climbing Trips, and several backpacking/camping trips.
Somewhere inbetween - Overseeing the construction of a small climbing wall in the gymn. And, 2-3 days a week covering for dorm parents on their day off.

Yeah, So my schedule will be pretty full these next 6 weeks.

I spent much of this past week trying (unsuccessfully) to get caught up on sleep. I was getting only 1-3 hours of sleep a night, until they gave me some sleeping pills to try and I was able to get 5 hours. Luckily I was able to get some good rest this weekend. During the days I helped out with coaching for the Track and Field, and getting to know the high school girls. The kids are all nice, fun, and outgoing. The Staff are all super nice, and there are a few that are keen to join in the outdoor activies and camping when we do them. We only have two school days this week as Monday was a holiday for them, and then Thursday I will be helping take the Elementary kids on a hike/picnic all day. Then Friday and Saturday is the Track and Field Competition.

Well, I have a Inbox full of emails to reply to before dinner.

Thank you all who have emailed and prayed. Continued prayers are much appreciated.

    It's wonderful to know that your are indeed alive. It seems like they are keeping you fairly busy and you are having a good time with it. Maybe I can eventually even help you out by sending you some team initiative and game ideas. It might be nice since I said I would and all.

    so their school end in six weeks? What are your plans after that? I hope you can start to get a bit more sounds like you are in a perpetual state of jet lag.

    love you!
