Wednesday: Once again it's off to school and work for us. I am in the library and Mark in his office. Mark has begun the counseling portion of his job and really loves that aspect of his ministry. On Wednesday afternoons, Ethan takes piano from a dorm student who is a senior. She is quite an accomplished musician. Wednesday evenings, Mark and I both lead small groups of students. He has 7 freshmen guys and I have 6 freshmen girls. We separate for most of the evening, but at the very end of our time, we come together for snacks and fun. Our house gets VERY loud. Hopefully our German neighbors don't mind too much:) We'll post pictures of and more about our small groups later. Meredith and Evan go to small groups in different locations as well. Ethan gets to go hang out at another girls' dorm. He is really getting the "big head" because all the girls talk about how cute he is:)
The Middle School overnight retreat. Mark helped coordinate this event.
"See you at the cross" is our version of "see you at the pole". The students gathered to pray with one another. The flags of all countries represented here can be seen in the background.
We are so thankful to have found a place to worship that fits who we are and how we are wired to worship Him. It's not St. B's but nothing could be as far as we're concerned. We love our home church and miss it very much. BUT, God is faithful and meets us where we are and fills our void in so many different ways.
As you can see, our weeks are VERY busy and full, but all that we do makes our hearts FULL of love for others and love for Him. Thank you very much for partnering with us, loving us and praying for us. We'll write more soon.
Blessings and peace,
