I'm sorry it took me so long to write on my blog. It was almost a month ago, from my last post. I don't really have a good enough excuse. I waste my time with other things, but that's okay I guess. When you're in college, your life is occupied with everything from church to your social life and everything that can fit in that very wide spectrum. I've made a lot of new friends this semester, and today was just a great day for me. We had the Seminary's Fall Kick Off today, and I went to it, expecting it to be perfect outside, only to be disappointed with the light drizzle that has become the opening week of September. It's not a bad tradeoff considering that there are 3 hurricanes lurking around my home state of Florida. I talked to my parents and told them that they should come to Louisville if the situation calls for it. It's a great move, because if there is a Category 4 or 5 hurricane aimed to hit West Palm Beach, chances are, our house won't be around for it. (Pretty scary thought).
School has become a week of savage beatings, one right after another. Especially on Thursdays, it is the busiest day of the week for me. I am working on different projects, and doing different activities with my church. Valley View Church has a drama ministry with its Middle/High School students, that I am teaching on Sunday nights. So I am happy that I'll be over at the church this coming weekend. In addition to this, I am planning a mission trip with my hypothetical youth group to Greece. The binder for this particular class project is about 3 inches thick worth of materials that have to go into it. It has 12 sections, and I'm only on the 3rd one. Everything up to the third section, is due the first week of October for my mid-term. I'm having a lot of fun with that, I mean come on, how many people can write letters to a minsitry organization in Greece that's on Thessalonica. Knowing that the Apostle Paul wrote one of his famous letters to the church there, and I can say myself that I've written a letter to the same place. That's really cool to me.
I am also trying to keep up with some pleasure reading as well as my major, endless reading for school; the TWILIGHT series. I'm a Harry Potter junkie so hearing books along the same line as the Wizarding world sparks my interest. It's the story of a girl who falls in love with a vampire. I know, the first thought you will have is a cheesy romance novel. NOT SO!!!!!!!! It's awesome! If its being made into a movie, which it is, in November. I suppose that's why the 6th Harry Potter movie has been moved back to July of 2009. I hated hearing that! It should have been out in November.
My blog is supposed to be about my ministry experiences in Japan, but as of right now, I am still waiting to hear back from the IMB, so there really isn't anything to tell. I am going out tomorrow night for my friend Gus' birthday. I'll tell you about that tomorrow!
