If you find yourself traveling or living abroad and looking for an online worship experience, I would recommend Northpoint Church out of Atlanta or Northlands Church out of Norcross, Georgia. The messages are relevant and you can listen or watch online various times throughout the week.


Interested in International Teaching? Check out these sites for job fairs and information. I highly recommend it!
Tie online - an international clearinghouse that has a list of teaching jobs around the world. There is a yearly fee of around $30 but it is more than worth it for the access and to post your resume.
AASSA - a site to find jobs at American International Schools in South and Central America. Look under the recruiting fair tab. It is the first fair held and is in Atlanta around the first weekend in December.
ISS - International School Service is another recruiter for international jobs.
UNI Fair at the University of Northern Iowa - the university holds a recruiting fair for jobs all around the world. It is usually in February (brrr!) but gives you access to a variety of schools.

Each service offers something a little different so check them out and decide what is best for you. Feel free to email me at any time with questions! cathleen_carpenter@hotmail.com

Working on one of the "carpets" required concentration and care


One event that we hadn't seen before as part of the Easter celebration was the amount of processions in every town and the creation of the alfombras en los calles - sand carpets made in the streets that the processions would then march through.
