The students in Research and Writing have narrowed down their topic choices and outlined their research paper plans for the rest of the semester. I am eager to read their work on some very intriguing topics. I am also excited about the progress we are making in Hebrew. Monday will be the first major vocabulary test, and I am confident that the average for the class will be quite high. It's encouraging to see the diligence and seriousness with which they have been taking this class. In Wisdom/Poetic Books we are going over the book of Ecclesiastes. As I look back at the roots for my own affinity for this OT book, I realize how much of that fondness rubbed off on me from my own teachers as they explored the book with me in seminary. What a privilege to have the opportunity to share that truth and excitement with others!

Kevin Sherman and I are continuing our preparations for our trip to South Sudan. Last Sunday we met for a bit with Phil Hunt, the school president, to work through logistics and pray. Please pray with us as we prepare that God would give us wisdom and energy to develop solid material to help these men. Our plan is to teach a foundational level doctrines course called "Apostolic Doctrines" during the first week. This class will trace the grand storyline of the Scripture from Creation through Fall, Christ and Redemption, to Kingdom and Consummation. The second week of classes we will be teaching Doctrines 1 concentrating on Theology proper, the Trinity, and Creation. Please pray for our safety and health as we venture out of our new comfort zone here. Pray that God would grant us an effective ministry among these pastors, most of whom have had little access to solid training.
