Closing a Chapter & Starting Another



Today is my very last day at the Y working as a swim instructor.

It's interesting to see God open and close doors in your life. If we allow Him to be, He really is the Author and Guide of our lives.

When we moved back from Asia I had zero idea what to do for a job. But God did. Never in my life did I think I would work at the Y and never ever did I think I'd be a swim instructor again. But God did. And I'm glad.

Through teaching swim I have had the privilege to tell kids about Christ, I've been able to befriend a Muslim family from Syria and I got to lead my co-worker to The Lord. And I praise God for all the above things mentioned. He alone could have orchestrated those events.

What do I plan to do now? That usually is the question, and of course I understand becuase I'd ask it too. My plan for now is to babysit two days a week. I watch my friends kid at my house. It is a paid job but it's also a big blessing to spend the days with him and to be home.

I also plan to focus on my photography business and to see what God will do with that. I have ideas, plans and a big to-do list of things I want to get done in my business. I plan to dive into that starting next week.

And of course I'll be taking care of this little rascal. She's a good puppy but lots of work.

  4. Hi! I am Nerissa, a Filipino living in Italy.
    We just started a website dedicated to the lives of all those living in a country other than the one where they were born. Thru PeopleAbroad.org we intend to increase connections, awareness, and understanding among people.
    We would like to ask you to contribute as an author to the website by writing even one single post with photos and/or videos about the region of the world you live in. Your post can be externally linked to your personal websites, blogs, Facebook pages, Twitter account, and/or anything else you like, in order to promote your own activity.
    If possible, we would also like you to write your story (bio - where you live and how you decided to live your life abroad) – example: https://www.peopleabroad.org/nerissa-filipino-living-in-italy/.
    To become an author, it is not necessary to live in a different country from where you were born, but simply to know a bit of the world by having lived, studied, or traveled abroad.
    Please, sign up to our website at https://www.peopleabroad.org/register/ and send all your files with things you would like to share (your story or your posts) by email to people(at)peopleabroad(dot)org. In case of big files, send them by WETRANSFER.
    Since this website is still under construction, we do not have yet made it available to search engines for indexation. So, to access it, just type www.PeopleAbroad.org.
    We are just starting and that is why your help is essential. We would love to see you onboard!
    All the best,
    Nerissa
