Josh started in Seminar week going strong from 7:30am -9:30pm and that is just the lecture part of it. The rest of the time he will be on his own directed studies to meet deadlines for the next seminar, which take place once a month. He will be learning German right away as he must read books in German for his research.
He has one class that requires 14 books and responses and of course many other readings and assignments. He will need to narrow his topic for his Dissertation and start writing his papers towards that end. Needless to say this is much more than a full-time job!
It is so fun to see Josh get excited about these studies in the Word of God! He understands the challenge and is diving in with no reservation (good movie by the way).
He is also able to help one of the profs teach a few of his beginning Greek courses, this is fun for him to remember the good ole days at Multnomah.
Thank you for praying for this insurmountable task that will be chipped away at one hour at a time!

After praying for a year and a half about when and where the Lord would have us go to school it is crazy to be here in the flesh!
Josh drove the big yellow Penske with the Subi on trailer in back through the night to be welcomed by Monday morning traffic at 5:30am. We rolled into campus around 7:30am to catch a few minutes of shut eye and then officially become CA residents.
It took about an hour and a half to cram every box and belonging into our one bedroom
After two days of unpacking boxes, we started to feel like we had a home. Although very small we feel privileged to have the only carpeted apt on our block.
We still feel like we are on vacation or something as our surroundings are so new. But we are so thankful to be here and are loving being in on this stage of God's plan for our lives!
