I haven’t been able to work in my nanny job for almost 2 weeks now, because Carin, my boss is out on sick leave with a knee injury. Last week I was really worried about money and knew that I needed to start thinking about another job. I wasn’t ready to completely give up on my nanny job, because I love the family and know that me not being able to work is out of everyone’s control. But I knew that after I paid the rent this week I would have almost no money left.
On Thursday I decided to post an ad on Gumtree (like Craigslist) offering private English conversation lessons. I had absolutely no idea if I would get any responses, but I already have 3 students: a Brazilian, an Italian, and a Pakistani. They are all hoping to meet for multiple hours each week, which is great. I’m hoping to get a few more students, but don’t want to be too busy once I start nannying again. It’s going to be a challenge for me in many ways, but I so badly want to see them improve because all 3 of them have such a desire to learn!
Once again, God has shocked me with His faithfulness. For several days last week I wasn’t sure if I would realistically be able to stay in Ireland much longer. I just kept praying that if God wanted me to stay, He would provide the money for me to survive, and He has.
