International Language Program

What does this mean???

I might go to China next fall to teach little chinese children how to speak english!!! I am soooo excited! I have been thinking about it a lot for the past month or so and looked online for information and such, and found out that there was going to be a meeting about it here in Rexburg.  Then the next day I got a flyer in the mailbox talking about it.  So I went to the meeting and I just strongly felt like this is exactly what I was supposed to do! And I kept feeling like China was the place to go.  There are several different options: China, Mexico, Russia, Lithuania, Etc. So I went home and filled out the application that night and turned it in.  The next day I walked in to the place where they were giving interviews and hoped that I could get one.  I did and then the next day they called me and said that everything was running smoothly and I will find out by next week if I got accepted.  I am soo excited!  I want to go SO bad! The ONLY hinderment is on whether I earn enough money this summer or not, but i'm pretty sure, if I work hard, I can save it! I need $2,500 to go and then some extra spending money, but I already have my job lined up for when I get home and I know I can work hard! I just feel like it's the right thing for me to do.  
I will finish my semester here at BYUI, go home and work this fall/winter until I come back next January, then I will finish my next two semesters here and graduate, and then I will immediately leave to China for four months and get back in November of 2013.  It will be perfect! Then Cody gets back in the spring of 2014! I can work after I get back from China, saving money for when Cody gets back! 
By the way...If I go, I totally get to see the Great Wall of China!

I'm crossing my fingers till next week when I find out!


  1. I had a few friends who did that and they LOVED it! Good luck!

  2. Read The Good Earth before going. You'll love the book. I have a copy, so when you're on your break you can borrow it from me.

    I really do think this could be a great experience for you. Cody is experiencing Brazil and you'll experience another part of the world. Both will open your eyes to the bigger picture of God's children. And to see the Great Wall and walk on it - all I can say is WOW!
