It is already the second month of 2015 and I’ve waited over an entire month to write this blog. Over the Christmas break from school, my first international student arrived from China. Michael arrived in early January and I met him on his first day of school at the high school counselor’s office. As his Coordinator, I can rest assured because his current host family, the Alonzo’s, are simply wonderful and he is adjusting well to our culture. We all attended a fundraising event on his first Saturday evening here that featured Nick Vujicic as the main speaker. Most of us are familiar with this incredible man who was born in Australia without limbs and was called at an early age to preach the Gospel and share his heartfelt testimony with the rest of the world.
Since that night, a transformation has already occurred in this young man’s life. He has requested to stay after school to attend chapel as well as expressing an interest in attending a men’s Life Group; an organization within the Alonzo family’s church. It is obvious that God has arranged for this young man to travel thousands of miles to California to be surrounded by people who demonstrate the love of God.
Our Father is so magnificent and omnipotent! When we surrender to Him and pray that His perfect will be done, He will move mountains on our behalf.
