Greetings one and all :} Two weeks ago we completed another semester at Sunset International Bible Institute. This past week we had Spring Break. I was VERY blessed to spend it at home. The break went by way too fast. I love every moment I can spend with my family! Tomorrow (March 21st) we start our the last semester of the school year. On Mondays and Wednesdays we’ll have Timothy and Titus (I took this class for credit in the extension school, so I will audit the course) in the morning, and Wisdom Literature in the after noon. On Tuesdays and Thursdays we’ll have Congregational Ministry (track course) in the morning and Revelation in the afternoon. On Fridays we’ll have 2nd Corinthians. Our preaching lab (Mondays through Thursdays) will be Special Events Preaching. We’ll be learning and practicing how to do weddings and funerals. It should be an exciting semester filled with lots of learning. My classmates and I should graduate on May 22nd. These two years have gone by way too fast.
On that note, I don’t really know where I will be going after finishing up at Sunset. Wherever I go I hope to be involved in community and/or college outreach; working with young professionals and singles; or member and new convert involvement in the life of the church. The young adult demographic has become a passion of mine in the past few years. I would love the opportunity to work along side college students, young adults in the work force, young families, and singles. I want to do a little personal research to discover the city or county with the largest population of this demographic. Anyone out there have any ideas, or know good websites that would have this information? Also, please check out Joshua Graves’ web page (joshuagraves.com I believe). He has written three outstanding blog posts on the young adults demographic. I read all three of them earlier today. They are all very well written and fanned into flame my desire to work with this demographic and see many of them converted to Jesus and become intregal parts of the church.
And on a third note, I’m in a bit of morning since yesterday evening. My Kansas Jayhawks got beat in the NCAA Tournament yesterday. All I can do is shruge (however you spell that) my shoulders. We played great! But the other team was just a little bit better. I gotta tip my hat to Northern Iowa. They were always a step ahead of Kansas. I was hoping Kansas could go all the way and win the Tournament this year. Oh well. Maybe next year. Now I’m pulling for Duke. Go Blue Devils!
In closing, in future posts, I will talk about the classes we have most recently completed (and hopfully passed). Thank you all for your prayers and support. God bless you all. Grace and Peace.
