Late Christmas and New Years Note

Hi Everyone,
I am sorry for not gettting to this update a little earlier. It has been on my agenda to do for a couple of weeks now but for some reason it kept getting pushed to the back burner.
Highlights of the Last Month...
School finished on December 17th. It has been a great first 10 weeks. Hard to believe how the time has flown.
I spent both Christmas and New Years at Tchincombe Ranch with my aunts and uncles and cousins and grandparents. We all had a wonderful time. It was my first Christmas away from Mum and Sara and Daniel so that was a little strange but I am so thankful for all the wonderful friends and family that the Lord has surrounded me with.
On Saturday I left for Windhoek, Namibia. Tammy Goertzen and her son Matt came with me.Their family are missionaries with Mission Aviation Fellowship in Lubango. They had to come to Windhoek to renew their Angolan visas and Matt has a few doctors appointments. They very kindly offered me a place to stay with them while I am in Windhoek so we are all staying together at the house of a friend of Uncle Peter and Aunty Shelley.
Mum arrives next Wednesday here in Windhoek and then we will drive up back to Angola. Until then I will be shopping and running errands and also preparing lessons for school when I get back.
Praise and Prayer Items:
Praise: School ended on a high note! Students and parents are excited about how it is going and coming back next year. They keep telling their friends and I am having to turn people away until I can get some help i.e. another teacher and our own facility.
Praise: Safe travels to Namibia this past weekend. The car ran very well and the border crossing (which can be very stressful) went very well.
Praise/Prayer: ISTEL has said that we can continue to use a classroom on their campus(YEAH!!!) however they have to move us to another classroom and this one is smaller. Please pray that we can figure out how best to work with our circumstances and what we have. We really need to begin building or setting up on our own. Please Prayer for guidance and wisdom as to what our next steps should be this year.
Prayer: Mum and I will be traveling back to Lubango next week. Please pray for traveling mercies.
Thank you once again for your love, your prayers and your support. I know that I couldn't be here without you all!
In Him,
Helena Foster Fabiano
