Hey Peeps! Crazy to believe that it is already fall! Leaves are begging to change and it is beautiful up here! We are constantly reminded everyday how blessed we are to be living in God’s creation every day. Our speaker Tim Hamilton has been talking about King David all week. It is a familiar story to some of us but it is also has some new lessons we learned from it. Tonight we have pause family’s! It is so nice to just “pause” from Joshua life and relax. Don’t get me wrong we all love the Joshua life but a time to rest is always appreciated. In other news, we have our first trip coming up! We are going to Heartland Christian Camps and we could not be more excited to serve he Lord in whatever way He asks. If we could have prayer that the trip will go well in Gods eyes and that H is will be done, we would be extremely grateful for that! Hope you all have a God filled week and thanks for reading!
What’s up Blog Readers! It’s Bailey here. I am so excited to share all that God has been working through us this past week. But first, I just want to thank you so much for taking the time to hear about our lives here in the wilderness. God is so powerful, and He is moving and reshaping all of us in mighty ways, and your prayer and support alongside us gives us the courage and the boldness to seek first our Lord and King.
This week we took our first test! Wooo! It actually went really well! It is seriously the coolest thing ever, in my humble opinion, to be able to be in a class setting devoted to learning more about the most important thing in our lives (a.k.a. our Savior and His beautiful word). To understand the background of Israel was something I didn’t find as important a few months ago. Now it seems crazy trying to read the Bible without context. I am so thankful for all of our teachers who devote so much of their time and wisdom to minister to us. They are all so amazing, and we have gained so much knowledge through them, and we are all so excited for even more!
I am sensing that times here in Joshua will have ups and downs. I noticed in myself that I started to experience a “down” time this week. Through this, I have been encouraged to run to the Word and to the community God has so faithfully surrounded me with, and it has been so beautiful. Through the hardships and troubled seasons, we can rest knowing that God is reworking, reshaping, and renewing. Because of this, I will praise and lift my eyes to the One who will never fail.
Joyfully, Bailey Wright
P.S. I love and miss you dearly fam!
Hey blog! So it is week #7 and time is just flying by. This coming weekend is mens retreat round two! Most of the boys are working in Ponderosa kitchen as hosts while the girls are spread all around camp. Thursday we had Pause night which is a highlight for me as well as most of the other Joshua students. Before Pause I had the chance to make pumpkin chocolate chip muffins in the kitchen with Amy. It was awesome and they turned out so great! During Pause some students carved pumpkins with their Pause family and their pumpkins are now out on display around Joshua! Pause Nights are a really sweet time and I always look forward to them.
