Kent Sparks and Pushups

I just passed my Philippians test so now I have more time to

Back To Normal Life!

Hello Everybody! It’s back to normal life in the Joshua building! Everyone is settling back into the routine and it is a great time to be a Joshua student, save for a little jet lag.

The Days Are Flying By!

Monday, January 27th 70°f – 50°f No rain Partly cloudy ¡holá! Good to have you back on good ole Monday. In America, Monday’s are not always looked forward to.

We started the day off with our devotionals, continuing in Hebrews 11, looking at the
