4 More Weeks!!!

Only 4 more weeks until Christmas break!! It seems so very hard to believe. It seems like just the other day I was starting classes and moving into the dorm, and now the first semester of my last year (at least for right now) at Ambassador is drawing to a close.

This semester has been a rough one, but it's also been a good one. Although I had a rough start, it's gotten much better. I've enjoyed making new friends and continuing my friendships from the previous year. I have learned so much not only in the classroom, but also out of the classroom.

I have two of the bestest (yes, I know that's not proper grammar, but I'm going to use it anyways) roommates. Christy and I get along wonderfully, and Jennifer just sits there and laughs at our craziness and our mock fighting and picking at each other. :) I'm looking forward to getting to know both of them even better next semester.

Next week is Thanksgiving! I'm very much looking forward to it for several reasons. First, Holly is coming down the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, secondly, I'm going to the Stolikers for Thanksgiving, which I know will be a blast, and thirdly, we're one week closer to Christmas break!!

Well, i need to wrap up now. I'll try to write more later.

An Update

This past week was Missions Conference at Ambassador. It was a great week!

The speakers, Dr. John Halsey and Dr. Ron White, were both really good. All of the messages this week were really good. I can't really pick a favorite.

On Monday, Ron White spoke about being surrendered to Missions. This really convicted me because I had not been surrendered to Missions. I had always looked at it as something that other people are called to. I kept making excuses like, "I don't think I could stand being that far away from my family," "I don't think I could survive if I ad to go someplace without electricity and running water," and other such ridiculous excuses. On Monday I surrendered to being willing to go to the Mission field. I don't know if God is or will call em to missions, but if He does decide to call me,I am willing to go.
