I'm here!

Well, actually, I've been here a while now, but there you go.

Yes indeedy, out here in South india in the region of Tamil Nadu, at Hebron School in a town called Ooty. And it's just fantastic. I'm loving being able to teach year 7 maths to a class of my own (quite scary at first), teach clarinet, piano and alto saxophone, and look after a year 8 dorm of 16(ish) boys - some aren't quite all there some of the time :P

Outside of that I'm enjoying playing clarinet in the concert band, singing in the choir, playing Need for Speed: Most wanted on the IT guy's conputer (what a legend!) and helping out with worship in church and 6:14ers bible club every other Sunday afternoon. In short, I'm doing a normal 'Tim Caird' and getting stuck in left, right and centre. But do you know what's really cool? Knowing that this is where God wants me here and now. Knowing that what I'm doing here is his will for me. And my quiet times just keep concreting that with God challenging me to give my whole heart to him in my academic, musical, bible club and dorm work. And I really want to be giving my whole heart! I mean, that's what I'm here for - that's what we're all here for! Suffice to say, God continues to rock my socks; daily.

Sadlt my time's up now, but I'll hopefully be online to blog again in the near future. If you'd like to keep up to date with my escapades, I'm writing a newsletter (sometimes with pictures!) every 3-4 weeks or so. Just contact me via my email address or if you're not sure what it is, leave a note on this post.

TTFN peeps, I'll be back in 3 months. MWAHAHAHAAA!!!!!!



weird is just your own personal brand of normal

Hi Timmy,

My Google Alert sent me the link to your blog. I am Hebron (then Breeks) grad from way back in 1959! My parents were missionaries in Secunderabad. Leaving for boarding school each year was always tough but generally I had a very happy time there and I value the education I got and the dedicated people who worked there to provide it. So, I very much appreciate what you are doing and wish you the Lord’s blessing.

I’ll be back to Hebron for the first time, in December, with my wife and three sisters who all went to the school too. We are excited about it.
