Getting a Routine

September 26, 2018 The first couple weeks at Joshua were like getting our feet wet. Now we are getting the sense that we are fully emerged in the day to day routine. This last week we were introduced to our pause families. In a community full of hyper college age students and busy schedules it was so refreshing to have a Hume family outside of the building. We love having a place where we can

Wildwood!

September 21, 2018 Monday –  It’s 5 am and all of us wake up to obnoxiously loud conches blowing throughout our hallways. We hear knocking on our doors and open them to a packing list on our floor. The RD’s are saying we have to be all packed and ready by 5:30 am. We were all panicking and shoving a bunch of whatever into our suitcases. When we go down at 5:30 they load us

A Starry Night!

September 13, 2018 The scene causes a warm smile to spread across my face each time I recall it.  Imagine running out to the lake in the middle of the night. Armed with lifejackets you aren’t going to wear, paddles that are probably going to get lost, and a bunch of college age kids surrounding you. You grab the huge metal boats lined up in a row along the shore, pull them into the water,

Move in Day!

September 11, 2018 The food has been totally awesome, and we have an amazing cook! Breakfast has been starting at 7 am but some people have been getting up at around 5 to go to the gym to work out. We start so early because the gym is at the bottom of the hill, so it takes about 15 minutes to walk down and about 20 minutes to walk up. Before breakfast we all line

Final Week!

Well this is it, our final week in the building is finally here. We have cried, laughed, and gone across the world together. For some this has been a long time coming, but even then, it is a bittersweet ending to the year. We are doing our best to finish strong during our quilt crunch time and enduring the stress of our finals. We are also starting to pack up our rooms and are finding

Time Flies

Wow! Whatta week guys. Time is counting down here in the Joshua building, and we are all anxious to see what it will be like to be thrown back out into the world. Of course, our priority right now is to be present in the time we have left, because we will never have an opportunity like this again. We have grown so close as a class and wish to cherish our last moments together.

Passed Phillipians!

We did it! Philippians is over! It has been so cool to study the Word, as difficult as it was for a lot of us. We now can say we know it and we had to prove it on our written final. We had to answer questions relating quotations from Philippians to our current culture. This shows what all the hard work was for, to know it in our hearts and be able to use

Getting back into the routine

Clara- We’re home from Israel! After spending the night in Bakersfield we made it safely back to Hume from LAX. Then we did the usual van cleaning that we do after every trip. After that everyone was just trying to stay up to 8 pm so we could get back to California time schedule. Some people went to bed at 7 and some people went to sleep at 8 then woke up at midnight to

Israel Day 9 – From Jerusalem to Bethlehem

Hi, we are in Israel and today was a good day. Sadly this morning we did not get to sleep in and so we got up at 6:15 and we went to breakfast. After breakfast we had a devotional that was lead by Amy. Since it was the Memorial of all the fallen soldiers of the Israel army, Amy talked about remembering the things that God has done for us. After that we hopped on the bus
