This year has been one of the hardest and most rewarding years we’ve ever had! Thankfully, so many of our loved ones braved the elements to come visit us! We really can’t thank them enough! In 2018 I took 13 classes (a full load is 10)! Blaire finished her reading course which completed her Associates Degree in Biblical Studies with the University of the Nations, while crushing it at her job all year, and finding time to help lead worship at our church and feed me… needless to say my wife is incredible!
The month of December marks the half way point of our season at seminary. Time definitely flies! Much more importantly the year ended with Blaire jumping into her own Seminary education! She has been accepted into the Master of Arts in Christian Studies degree program! Starting in January Blaire will be both working and studying part time so I know she welcomes your prayers. I have also started in a new position at our church. Beginning this year I will be serving as the Global Missions Intern at the First Presbyterian Church of the North Shore. I am grateful to say that since leaving the mission field in 2017 this is one of the most concrete steps I have been privileged to take in pursuit of God’s calling on my life. God is good!
