Noise. There’s so much noise here. That’s how I know I’m back in site. IST ended and I, after scrounging the awesome PC library walked away with three GRE practice books. I’m so thankful. My intention is to study for at least an hour a day until I take the exam.
Every time I am feeling less than my best, God shows me that I matter AND I’m doing a good work. Here things run at such a slow pace. It often feels like nothing is happening, but it is. My tutor asked me why I’m here. I was explaining the different sectors of peace corps (small business, health, environment, TEFL) and how my primary goals are to teach youth entrepreneurship to 11th and 12th grade and teach the curriculum to the teachers here. Promoting the understanding of the financial concepts and curriculum is most important to continue the understanding of how to start your own business after I’ve finished u service. My excitement was uncontainable and she asked why was I here if I had so much knowledge and excitement about entrepreneurship. My answer was easy, “I am here because I see possibilities here. Nicaragua is an amazing opportunity to make a real change and teach people who truly need the information.” She was touched and shared with me she had a business idea but has been too scared for years to implement it. We talked in depth about cultural changes that we need to do and what the businesses in my site need. Whenever you’re unsure about being in the will of God, just look for Him to give you a wink.
