Short break in Langano

4 November, 2015 | 0 COMMENTS

This past month, I had the chance of a much needed break after activities week. Bingham took one week off for October break. I found it initially wasn't very relaxing, as not very many other teachers were heading outside of the city, something that I knew I needed to do for a proper break. There is always something happening around Addis which keeps me busy. On top of that, receiving emails about IT problems back at Bingham makes me think that I should be there as much as I can, trying to help s...

Activities week

21 October, 2015 | 0 COMMENTS

Another month almost gone! It's crazy how fast time flies around, especially when you're super busy. I'll try and remember everything interesting that happened! The main activity this month was last week's activity week. All of the high school grades spend a week in a different part of Ethiopia, mostly engaging in some kind of community service activity, getting the students used to serving the needs of the community with their time, hopefully encouraging them to look into some other voluntary ...

Spiritual Emphasis Week

Bingham's Spiritual Emphasis week has finished up last week, and was by all accounts a great success. Both speakers who had come (one for the high school and one for the middle school students) spoke really ...

So again, sorry that it's been a while since I've posted last, things are continuing at a hectic rate here. I'm getting more and more into the swing of teaching every day, and feeling more comfortable being in front of a group of students again, which is great. I have just finished my first module with my bible class, and we're starting into Hebrews properly a week from Monday. Bible classes can be a little stressful at times, but I definitely do feel like God is continuing to help me figure out...

Starting school

25 August, 2015 | 0 COMMENTS

Wow! Quite a month. Apologies for the lack of updates recently. I've arrived back to quite a workload!! I got back to Addis Ababa safely at the start of the month, and got through customs and everything OK. This is always something to be thankful to God for, I have learned not to assume that things will be smooth every time. I had a couple of days to relax before I was due to start at Bingham. I installed the spare parts for my car that I'd brought in (I now have a working passenger window and ...
