Prayers are Welcome Here

It's before 9 and I'm having a chance to check emails and blog! This first week is going well. It's getting better each day as I learn what kids to watch out for and for what reasons. Monday and Tuesday I had the same problem with one student, which hopefully got fixed because we didn't have the problem today. Good progress! However, a new situation came up today with different students, which will have a stop to it tomorrow. God will help me, and the students will find out I am serious that when I tell them the consequences of something, I do follow through. I am pretty steamed about the situation I will be dealing with tomorrow. Please pray for wisdom and patience as I speak to the student that thought they could get away.

Also pray for the teacher I am subbing for. He originally took this 6 week leave as a paternity leave to take care of their new born and first born. He's been going to the doctor about his knee, and found that he tore his ACL, so will have surgery Friday, staying over night in the hospital. After his surgery he has to recover for 6 weeks, so now my 6 week assignment turned into a 7 week assignment. I'm excited about that, but I know I have to take this one day at a time with God's new strength every day. Pray that he will be able to care for his son with ease while recovering from surgery.
