I have been planning for a while to go to Eastern Europe to teach English. My plan was to go next winter but recently I got the impression that I needed to go in January. This kind of impulsive thing is so uncharacteristic of me that it has been really hard for me. I really have to do a lot of things that are contrary to my nature to make it work. Added to this some obstacles to going seem just impossible to overcome. But everytime I conquer one of these obstacles, I feel really happy and proud of myself and I know that if I can get everything in order, this trip will bring me a lot of joy.
I am glad that our Father in Heaven gives us trials that bring us joy.
