Preparing for the Dominican Republic

In the past few days, the class finished up Tattoos on the Heart for book discussion and listened to our speaker, Dave, talk about preparing for our trip to the Dominican Republic. Dave spoke both about packing our suitcases and unpacking our emotional and spiritual luggage. That night of speaker, many classmates committed to give up certain pieces of baggage in their lives. It was great to see so many people take a step forward

Fandom Night!

Over this last weekend it was the first week of Winter Camp. It was tons of fun, we all got to work in different places. I was able to work in Activities and I did re-ball, which is basically paintball indoors. It was super fun to hang out with the campers and I even got to play a couple of times. It also snowed so that was great! And our last night we did the

Winter Camp!

Life at Joshua has been quite busy these last few days. We’ve spent a lot of time working, memorizing Philippians and preparing for our trip to the DR in a couple of weeks. This weekend, we had our first weekend of winter camp.  Most of us worked around camp but a few of us had the weekend off. One of the coolest parts about camping ministry is getting to see first hand what the Lord

These Times Are Good

Last week in Joshua we had preview students! These are students who are interested in coming to Joshua that come, stay, and get to see first hand the program that they are applying for. There were about 15 of them and it was so fun to get to know them and hear about their excitement for the program. It was also really strange to think about the fact that a lot of them will end

Pursuing Him

Written by Caleb, Matt, Kimmy, Maddie, Kenzie Dec. 8th, 2018: On this Saturday the Joshua staff decided to implement a one time all day Sabbath. So basically we could not make plans, couldn’t go down the hill, and do things that are generally restful for us. I personally enjoyed it because I got to hang out with some guys here and just do whatever we wanted. It was an eventful day and it was just

How God Made Us

It’s Christmas time here at Joshua. Ever since we’ve come back from Thanksgiving break, Christmas has been on the for-front of our minds. This has made doing homework and going to classes a little bit harder but nonetheless, things are getting done. Last week our speaker was Jeff Bachman. He spent last week sharing his heart for youth ministry and culture in the church. He talked a lot about how important it is for us

Snow Everywhere!

This past weekend all of us unexpectedly had the weekend off!! It was really cool to see all 43 of us hanging out in the building for the weekend. A couple groups decided to go snow shoe-ing. Over the weekend, they had hiked over 16 miles. Everyone said it was worth it and the pictures looked amazing! Another group had gone to Grant’s Grove during the weekend, but the majority of the students decided to

Disney Night!

We had Disney Theme Night tonight and it was awesome. First we had to dress up as a Disney character, and there were so many great costumes. Someone dressed up as a chimney sweeper from Mary Poppins, another person dressed up as a storm trooper from Star Wars, and another person dressed up as Woody from Toy Story. After we got dressed up, we took pictures outside and it was snowing! It was truly a
