You do what?

Here's what a girl who has a textiles degree does in the jungles of Ecuador on Mondays and Thursdays....

  I currently hold the title of "librarian" for the Nate Saint Memorial School.  Last year when the librarian was moving I decided that I would do the job if no one else stepped up.  So, you know what that means!  No one else stepped in, so I thought I would at least be trained and help until someone more "qualified" came along.  Well, it's been almost a whole school year, and I actually like the job.  Isn't God funny?!   I don't feel qualified and can't help the kids as well as I would like sometimes because I lack knowledge about authors etc.  But, I'm learning.   Plus, it's a great way to spend some time with all of the kids. 


  1. I still remember learning the Dewey Decimal system and I LOVED the card catalog!

  2. When I ask the girls what they enjoy about school, visiting the library is always on their list of things they enjoy. You must be doing a great job! So fun to see pictures of our Valerie - thank you for sharing and for serving!

  3. No. Way. There are so many things I could say...but I won't! I am sure you do a wonderful job!

    It was nice to see pictures of you and the Children in the Nate Saint library. We had been wanting to be a "fly on the wall" and see our grandchildren in school. Thank you for what you do in Ecuador.
    With Love,
    Grandparents of Valerie Grace Welch

  5. What a rewarding job, Andi! It looks like you have the library in tip top shape with so many books!The children are so lucky! Enjoy!!
