I saw the sun rise three times today.  Third time’s a charm, Mr. Sun.  Actually, I lost count after the fourth or fifth time the sun rose from behind a peak, only to be obscured again as I drove through the hills from San Luis Obispo to Pismo Beach.  I dropped my housemate Tyler off at the train station early this morning.

Things are pretty quiet around here.  Most people are gone on outreach or vacation and support raising trips.  Will and Lori are having a new baby girl any day now.  We received a new staff woman, Jael, from the Netherlands a couple weeks ago and now she is away on her new staff outreach.  Our most recent addition is a friend from the surf DTS which ran at the same time as my DTS, Hoover.  We set him up in the guy’s room at our house, and he’ll start training next week.

Other than that, I am enjoying the newly redecorated office, painting a couple walls in the office, making a lot of art, playing violin in a musical, preparing for the next DTS and praying that God sends us more students so we can HAVE a DTS this July.

Like I said…quiet.

Stroopwaffles and Discernment

Welp, the title pretty much says it all.  I have stroopwaffles…the lovely Jael, our emissary from Holland, gifted me them from her birthday care package (her birthday was Friday)!  Glory be to Jesus.

And I am currently discerning God’s heart on a new opportunity that has come my way.  Please pray for wisdom and…you guessed it…discernment.

And just because I love you, a passage from Colossians:

For in [Christ] the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him who is the head of all rule and authority. (2:9-10)

Isn’t that amazing?!?!!?
