Ok, so our "new" student came, stayed one night and hasn't returned. She asked our current student about staying the night with her boyfriend some nights(more common here than in US....never thought I'd ever be able to say that--but it's true). Katya told her that she wouldn't be able to do that if she stayed in the family home. Well, that did it...she has not come back...too hard to do for her and to commit to.
It's really too bad to see this happen. Olya was such a talented one and she could use a family setting to learn the love of God and family. While she was here, she showed us what she wants to do---escalating nails(basically manicured nail tips). She showed us her samples...they were amazing work. She doesn't have a job right now, so she doesn't have money to even buy the kit to start up the nail business. So, who knows what will happen, except God. Please pray that the Lord would protect her and guide her even not in our family home.
We are still praying about next year. We have some ideas, but are watching for the Lord's open or shut doors. Keep this in your prayers PLEASE!!! Thanks! We soooo appreciate them!!
