Sigh of Relief

I was able to get in contact with someone who was able to call my family and find out if everyone was alright, and they are. However, our house and yard did not slide by without some minor damage and major cleanup. They said that Hurricane Gustav was the worse storm Baton Rouge has ever seen. I have been reading 2theadvocate.com to find out what is going on in Baton Rouge. Now that nothing happened in New Orleans the National news is on to a new story. I have seen some pictures from around the Baton Rouge area and it does not look good. Even though I have heard from my family I still have tons of friends that I have not heard from being that the power is all out. There are also quite a few churches that support me and were in the areas affected, including my home church. Please specifically pray for Bethel Temple Assembly of God, First Assembly of God Vidalia, First Assembly of God Raceland, Cornerstone Christian Ministries in New Iberia, Freedom Worship Center in Galliano, First of Assembly of God Denham Springs, Northside Assembly of God in Crowley, and First of Assembly of God in Youngsville.
Today was my first day of class. I was a little concerned that I may not know anything in my grammar class but I knew all she went over so it was a good review. I only have one other girl in my class but I have been told that it is better because you learn more with less people. Phonetics class was interesting. We had to go over the vowel and alphabet sounds and use a mirror to watch the placement of our tongues and lips. I felt like I could not speak English or Spanish when I left that class.
