Thankful God Sees Me

Hey y’all! Life in the Joshua building for me, so far, now that we’re going on our 5th week, has been pretty great. Of course there’s the struggles, but when will we not encounter it? The weekend was busy with work, hosting is a busy job. Although, I got to see my two aunts and my two grandmas come up for the woman’s retreat. Pause night this past week was super fun, even though I’ve

Looking Forward to the Wild Ride!

What’s up, everyone?! We hope you’re all holding down the fort in civilization while we are away! Let’s cross our fingers that the carrier pigeon doesn’t mess this up. It is approaching the month mark of us being here which makes my brain question everything I know about time. We began our SWEEPS! This gives us the opportunity to help out around main camp and familiarize ourselves with the various programs. I drove a golf

The meals are great and the coffee is brewing.  This weekend was a great weekend as many people were able to work during a marriage retreat.  The food service staff did a really good job at making dinner romantic.  On Sunday evening we were all able

Excited for the Adventure!

Greetings from the mountain top! Everything is going well and God is good! We were thrilled to go through Wildwood, but now we are so glad to start Joshua life. We just had our first guest speaker, Matt and his wife Marlo Jensen. It is so crazy that he is our first guest speaker, since we have already learned so much. It was fascinating to learn that Matt and Marlo lived in Ecuador for 8

Last Day in the Building!

Last night was our last Pause night! All of the pause families came to the Joshua building at 5:30 to get pictures and then had a delicious meal made by Amy. All of the students helped make the meal and set up the tables. The meal consisted of salad, bread, mashed potatoes, asparagus and tritip! After the meal the pause families went to their houses. My pause family had s’mores on their deck and talked
