In my book work equals ministry.  And in the book that matters it means the same.  Colossians 3:23 says, "Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than people."  My parents used this verse to teach me good work ethic from a very young age. It is something that has stuck with me.  In whatever I do I am working/serving the Lord.  I am so blessed and thankful for the job that I have teaching English Literature to 7-11 graders and English Grammar to 7th graders.  I was expecting to teach younger children but I know that the Lord has placed me in my position to reach out to the young people in this school.  This morning, as a team, we took communion together and then the Spiritual Advisors prayed over each one of us.  The lady who prayed over me gave me a word of exhortation.  She said, "Todo viene de Dios; Le ha puesto muchas semillas en sus manos."  Which means, "Everything comes from God;   He has put many seeds in your hands."  Even though I feel overwhelmed and out of my comfort zone I know God has called me to be where I am.  After we were prayed over we consecrated the entire school to the Lord; The bathrooms, offices, every classroom, and every school desk.  To see the teachers crying over the desks and rooms really touched my heart as I could see their love for the children.  We all want God to use us; we want to see a change in the lives of the children and young people who attend this school
