I am really happy I stayed here for the year. It has been amazing. It took quite a long time for me to finally enjoy it over here. It was somewhere in January that I could say, yes, I like it here and I don’t want to go home anymore.
Sometimes life as an au pair can be hard work, but it is worth it in the end. I went with them to church and met some amazing people over there, friends for life. They are one of the reasons why I stayed here for the whole year.
The other reason is my faith. When I decided to go away for a year I really felt this was the right thing to do. I had a lot of free time so that meant I could do a lot praying and reading the bible, what I really needed in the beginning of the year. During the year I became so much stronger in my faith then I ever was.
I am so thankful that I could stay with this family and I am sure God led me to this family to seek Him. It has been such a rollarcoaster year but it changed me so much. I got more indipendent and developed myself in many things.
Now I am counting down to when I am going home, that is about 6 more weeks. I’m looking forward to that as well.
I want to thank you as well for the whole organization. It’s great that there is something like this for christans.
