Welcome Saipan SDA School Teachers!

One of the things I love about being a Seventh-day Adventist is knowing that we have church "families" all over the world. So no matter what country you travel and work at there is always someone there to welcome you and to take you in as their own.

Perhaps one of the hardest things I have had to endure living here in Saipan is being away from my family. The members of the church and school have stepped in my life and have been my family away from home. Its a great feeling being loved and supported by so many.

Its that time of the year again to welcome the new batch of Saipan SDA school teachers. There are a total of five school teachers: Ricci, Eva, Veronica, Jessica, and Amy. We are still needing someone to teach our fifth graders and are hoping to find one soon since school starts in a week!

We welcomed them at the airport. Some of the places they have come from are California, Washington, Texas, and even Spain. Their a sweet and energetic bunch and I'm looking forward to another great year with them.

I have to say that it was weird sitting across from them earlier tonight. It felt weird that Grant, Layla, Brit, and Missy were missing. I miss them!

Hey're right...I'm not there yet, but I feel so weird not being there :(

I wish I could teach another year. It's the hardest thing I've ever had to do (is leave)

Have fun this year and make them feel as warm and welcome as you did me :)

Bev, I think part of these new teachers indoctrination needs to be a warning about a certain swarthy Italian.
