This semester, I am teaching three classes. Interpreting 2 follows up on the class the student was discussing. This is where I get to introduce students to the original languages. They're already hard at work learning the Greek alphabet. I am also teaching Theology 1 where we piece together what God's Word says about itself, about God, and about Christ's person and work. Finally I'm teaching a class on the Latter Prophets, which includes Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and the twelve Minor Prophets. We'll be busy this semester! Keep us in prayer as we seek to teach God's Word and equip God's servants for his harvest fields.
Also pray that the Lord would continue to use our ministry to Emmanuel Baptist Church. Tomorrow we're starting a new series in the adult Bible study time on congregational counseling. Each one of us as church members is called to serve the body, to be "full of goodness, filled with knowledge and competent to instruct one another" (Rom 15:14). May God grant grace that we may match that description for his glory.

|We did catch a little bit of snow in MI.|
I took a more circuitous route, stopping along the way at the ETS conference in San Diego. From there I drove our van to El Paso where I said goodbye to my parents and then up to Albuquerque where we had originally rented our vehicle. The final tally ran up to something like 14,500 miles (23,300 km) of travel in that vehicle; God kept us safe the whole way.
|Some tired boys got some|
heiße Schokolade (hot chocolate) in Frankfurt.
Later that week, we flew to Nairobi via Frankfurt. The Lord was kind to grant an exceptionally uneventful pair of flights.
I believe the family is resettling into our regular routine again and beginning to emerge from jet lag. As we begin our third term, please pray for us that the Lord would grant us grace not to serve as though we were sufficient in ourselves, but only "with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever" (1 Peter 4:11).
