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

Jim Cook and the Oscars

This week, we started the quilt for our class, we listened to Jim Cook speak, we finished Mere Christianity, and we had Oscars Night. But we’re also trying to bond as much as we can before we have to leave. It’s been a sweet time here and we can all thank Jesus for all He has done to create this flourishing community. Okay, so every year the class puts together a quilt. The students create

Back in the Building!

  Joshua is back in the building! The students experienced a nice, restful week at home after a long trip in Israel. It was refreshing and re-energizing for most. Now, the students are back to finish up their time in the building. They’ve got a little more than one week left in the Joshua building! For the past couple of days, the students helped serve the residents of Hume Lake’s subdivision by raking the pine

Pray For Our Travels!

Tomorrow we leave for Israel! This whole week has been packing and preparing for what God is going to do, and what we are going to experience. As I’m reading the gospel of John, it blows me away that we are going to be in all these places that Jesus did these miracles and ultimately died and conquered death for us. Guys night this week was a blast. Harry had an idea that at first

What I’ll Miss The Most

What intrigued me most about Joshua when I first applied were the missions trips and traveling. So far, on every single trip we have learned so much and have seen the Lord do amazing things. I also never want to take for granted the blessing it is to simply live life everyday with my best friends. Sometimes it can be hard to fight the temptation just to ‘get though’ these last few weeks. Just to

Finished with Philippians!

This week our Joshua class has been preparing for our big Philippians test that was on Thursday. We recited our final chapter and took a test on the knowledge of Philippians. The test was a pretty confusing for all of us, but the staff was really gracious and humble about it and in the end, the majority of us passed!! All of us were pretty excited to be done with the stress of Philippians and

Spring Is Here!

This past week hasn’t been to eventful in the Joshua building. Students have fallen into a steady rhythm, since they’ve been in the building for a solid month. When they aren’t preoccupied with homework and Philippians, you can often find Joshua students hanging out in the catalyst room or playing boardgames. Recently, the students have gotten their backpacks, packing list, and room assignments for the upcoming Israel trip. All the students (and staff) are pretty

Last Night of Broom Hockey!

Wednesday night consisted of two things. Movie night and broom hockey. Yes, movies are against our Joshua covenant. The staff decided to let us watch a film titled Denial. We all got cozy and cuddled up on the couches in the great room and watched the movie. It was a sweet time and moving film. Shortly after the movie, we moved over to broom hockey. Broom-hockey is a staple of Hume Lake Winters! Having never
