Update from Sunset – February 6, 2010

As always, time is flying… Bridget and I are now halfway through the 3rd term of our 1st year. God is doing so much in our lives. We are experiencing so many new things, and growing closer to Him day by day. This week we’re off of classes to do research, and I’m hoping to get a lot done in the next few days.

This term has been challenging in a different way than the past terms. The 1st term, of course, was when everything was new and there were a lot of adjustment issues. The 2nd term had the challenge of learning Greek – any language is a challenge for me. This term has it’s own things going on – they’ve introduced much more memory work, there’s a lot more pressure to manage time wisely since there are fewer assignments.

We’re keeping busy outside of class as well. We have a regular bible study set up with some friends whose door we knocked on one night. That’s been going on for a few months, and I think that we’re all growing as a result. Hopefully they will obey the gospel soon. Bridget and I were also asked to get involved with the youth group here at Sunset. I’m really looking forward to that. We’re trying to keep up with hospital visits as well.

Right now, our thoughts are on this coming summer. We are currently unsure of what we are going to be doing with our break, but there are a few opportunities to preach locally. What I’d really like to do though is find a place to do an internship for a short time. There’s something possibly going on there, too. We’ll see. It’ll depend on our support, so that’s a major consideration.

In the meantime, I’ve got lots to be getting on with here. This week I have to write a narration of the book of Acts memorize several chapters of the bible, complete a take home mid-term, complete several readings and assignments in Jude… and probably some other stuff I’ve forgotten.

As always, your prayers for us are greatly appreciated; we continue to pray for all of you as well. God bless you. d&b

    Hey brother Donnie It’s good to hear from You, and to know that all is well with you and Bridget. It certainly sounds like your time is used productively. Memorize chapters, learn greek… That’s a life times work for me (smile). There is a young man there name Princeton Palmer. He is an Aimer who we are helping. I first met him and his family in England at the congregation where Bro. Mac Sis. Marsha worship. Say hello to him for me if you run into him. I don’t know how all that works. What kind of support do you need for the summer intern opportunity? We will certainly keep you two in prayer

      @Floyd: Good to hear from you too, my brother.

      We’ve met Princeton, he’s a great person. He’s in Mexico right now on a short-term missions trip with the rest of the AIM class, but when he gets back I’ll pass along your greetings.

      I’m not sure what we will need for the internship at this point; we don’t even know if it is going to happen. I’ll pass along details as they become available.

      Give my love to Aunt Delyght. We appreciate your prayers
