- First, a thankfulness for the blessing and responsibility to teach the Bible to students. Every Tuesday, in Weary Wil's Sports Grill in the Union, John Reiners and I met and talked about all sorts of things; how he is doing, how his devotional life was, sin, victory over sin, uncertainty about life, etc. We also spent a significant amount of time studying Colossians. We do what's called the "Inductive Bible study method", which (in a nutshell) is carefully observing, interpreting and applying God's Word. My time with John this past semester was honestly some of the best time in the word
with a student I've had in a long time. He was/is an astute guy, eager to not jump to conclusions and humble to acknowledge what he didn't know. Unfortunately, John is transferring to STI in Sioux Falls next year, since he got a full-ride scholarship to study automotive repair. So, seems like a great thing for him, but I'll miss him.

March (and April) Mashup, pt 1
Its been two months since I posted an update. I've just been so swamped I haven't even had 5 minutes to write a blog! Not. I do apologize for not updating more in the past couple months of ministry, but I'll try and make up for it in the next couple posts.
