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

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.

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

On the Topic of Purity

This past week has mostly just been re-adjusting back into the life of Joshua.

On Monday we had our regular sabbath, and then Bob’s class in which he talked about public speaking, a new unit we are going
