Being Five

Playin' with Jamin
 The Pittsleys are growing into a workable life schedule as we become accustomed to being a family of five. Many things are still the same. Josiah and Jonas do not have reason for much more than occasional acknowledgement of their new little brother. So they run around and play—as rascally as ever. However, their parents, especially Jenny, are adjusting again to having a very little one around. Our nights have me going to bed early, and Jenny staying up late. Then I get up early with the baby to let Jenny, in theory, get some rest. Usually, Jamin is getting a few hours of sleep in there somewhere. The schedule actually works really well for me because I usually need to be up early anyway to prepare for the morning's classes. Please pray for continued health for Jenny and baby.

Newborn Nation
Hebrew, Research/Writing, and Wisdom/Poetic Books are all proceeding well. I am grateful for the privilege to teach these men, giving them tools to understand God's written communication and to proclaim it to their generation.

Another privilege that God has granted is an opportunity to teach in the newborn nation of South Sudan. CABC has been conducting regular block classes in the country this year, and Kevin Sherman and I have volunteered for the next set of two courses coming back-to-back this September. I am elated about this chance to reach out in a land so thirsty for the gospel and to equip leaders there for the spread of Christ's fame. Please pray for Kevin and me as we study and prepare, squeezing in course development while we teach. Please pray too for a safe and productive journey this September.

Thank you for keeping us in your prayers!
