Happy To Be Here, Proud To Serve!

Hey Everyone! Life on the hill has been pretty fun lately! We have our pause families tonight, and everyone is super excited. Sarah and I convinced Bob to let us buy a fish, so now we have a cute little Beta fish and I named him Jude! We were so surprised that that the staff even said yes, so we are hoping we can keep him alive for a while! Amy said she only gives

God is Good!

So far, we’ve had three work weekends and two full weeks of classes.   As our first month comes to an end, I can honestly say that this has been one of the coolest learning experiences I have had the pleasure to be a part of. There are 38 of us here and personally, I have never lived with

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

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

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
