I took 2 years leave from my school and headed for an Asian mega‐city to teach English. After returning home I sensed God had other things in mind so after 2 years I resigned, and accepted a position as a primary school English teacher back in Asia. My job was full‐time, but I was conscious that God had something else for me to do. I eventually found a wonderful volunteer job in a charity school for poor rural girls. Over 4 years I helped young women gain basic English as an employment skill, and found many ways to minister to girls and staff.
Work and life needed time, patience and flexibility before I settled into a rhythm. I needed the regular prayers of my friends, church and the AZTEM family. I needed closeness with my Father, me to spend with Him and see where He was at work. As Philip Yancey said, we just need to make Him visible. M, ESL Teacher, Asia
