Busy, Busy, Busy

The last few weeks have been some of the busiest I can remember. Preparing my two classes takes up most of my time, and I absolutely love what I am doing!

Each day I am preparing lesson plans, data projector presentations, quizzes and assignments for the next class period. We are making good progress through the course schedule I outlined in January. It looks like we will finish our survey of the OT prophetical books just before the midterm break. From there the OT Prophets class will be surveying the theological themes from the books as a whole. The apologetics class will finish the course material outlining the principles of apologetics just after the break. Then each student will be applying the principles to a certain non-Christian segment of Zambian society: African traditional religions, cults, or world religions. I am excited about the level of understanding and progress the students are showing. God is working to equip his servants!

Jenny and the kids are all healthy and happy. Jonas is still a few months from 2 years old, but he has definitely learned the meaning of the word "no." It seems like it's usually either going into his ears or coming out of his mouth—another pagan who needs to be civilized :) Josiah is continuing to learn about his world. He is picking up a little Bemba (the predominant tribal language in this region of Zambia) and has made a friend or two his age in the immediate neighborhood.

Those of you who have been following my Twitter/Facebook posts know that I finally have Internet access in our home now. That access should allow me to post updates more frequently (both blog posts and status updates). I hope to be able to complete a full newsletter during midterm break in a few weeks.

Thank you for your continued prayers!
