Please pray!

So we just finished with the first day of school! I have a small class so far - 9 students. We had a wonderful time getting to know each other today, and I'm excited about what God has in store for this year. I plan to send out a more thorough update about my summer and the coming year (with pictures hopefully!), but right now I'm writing to ask for prayer about a situation that has come up with my old landlady.

Some of you know about this already, but here's a quick synopsis just in case: Somehow in the midst of finishing school, packing, and moving, I forgot to stop the automatic transfer of my rent. So I had moved in July to my new place, and a few days later my rent for the old apartment went out. Oops!
I contacted my old landlady to explain the problem and have her transfer the money back to me, but she has been uncooperative. Mrs. Avery (our school secretary and "apartment finder") has been helping me with this, but we have gotten nowhere with this woman. My old landlady's name is Frau Arnold (Mrs. Arnold), and she has had over 6 weeks to make this transfer but for some reason has chosen not to.

I'm asking that you pray especially over the next 2 or 3 days that her heart would be softened to return the funds by Monday. Without those funds I will be unable to pay for both my rent and my new transportation pass (they are both needed by the end of the month). We know that our God answers prayer, and that He is in control of all the events in this world. He certainly has control over this situation, so I ask that you join me in asking for His intervention in this situation, that He might recieve the glory.
