So this weekend Betka and I will be traveling to Prague, Czech Republic and then on to Lednice, Czech Republic.
we are simply just We are leaving tonight to go to Prague to visit the Christian International School of Prague and to meet the staff of the school. We will stay with a friend of ours in Praha who is serving as a missionary there. Our reasons for visiting this school are many. My initial contract is up this year at VCS as many of you already know, and CISP is in need of a K-12 art teacher and librarian. Now for those of you that know both Betka and I, you would probably guess that this could be an opportunity for us. We are by no means unhappy with what is happening in our ministry at VCS. We are just exlporing our options in Betka's home culture. I have been emailing on and off with the director, the secretary, and one of the teachers at the school, who are all the same person and it appears that CISP is like VCS used to be 10-12 years back. You can check out their website at www.cisprague.org We are very interested to see what this opportunity might offer to us as a missionary couple. As of right now we are leaning towards making a commitment of staying at VCS for another 4 years. We are required to make the decision by the 23rd of this month so please continue to keep us in your prayers as we visit tomorrow and make our decision in the next couple of weeks. Please pray that the Lord's will would be crystal clear and that we would have wisdom in deciding where to be into the future.
Friday evening we will head south again to visit with Betka's family, to celebrate her birthday. Her grandma was going to be with us but she has fallen and hurt her leg again so she was unable to travel right now. Please keep our Babinka (Grandma) in your prayers as well. This time should be a much-needed time of relaxation and retreat away from the city that we have both learned to live in and somewhat feel at home in, but have not ever really felt relaxed here. We love Vienna, but South Moravia, Czech has a special place in both of our hearts.
We will update later to let you all know how the visits go. Blessings!:)
