I know I have been gone for quite some time, so I’d like to take this opportunity to update everyone on what’s been going on this summer. First, my wife and I wrapped up our secular jobs in mid-June and mid-July, respectively. Then, we took a two-week trip to Zambia, Africa, to visit my sister-in-law and her family, who are missionaries there. We flew into Livingstone via Munich, Germany and Johannesburg, South Africa. We had a wonderful time visiting with family, participating in ministry, and seeing the sights (including a safari!).
After the Africa trip, we had exactly five days to adjust to the time change, pack up all of our belongings, and drive a U-Haul from Jacksonville, FL, to Wake Forest, NC. I am preparing to start a second master’s degree, one with a lot of electives I intend to fill with philosophy courses. The school I am attending is Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, and I am already excited. We have met new friends, bought books, and are looking for a new church home. We intend to decide soon, so we are praying for the Lord’s wisdom and guidance in this area. Neither of us have full-time jobs, and Jodi is looking for one while I go to school full-time and do adjunct work for Trinity. We may add a donation link through the website for anyone who would feel led to help during this time (but no one feel any pressure! I don’t roll that way). All we ask for is your prayers, if we could.
I intend to resume writing again as soon as tomorrow. Until then, God bless you, and thanks for your patience with the lack of content!
