1st week of Staff Training

Mt first week of training is complete!  It has gone so well.  I have met many new great friends, and enjoying the time learning and growing with them.  A rough schedule of our day is that we meet for breakfast as 8am, and then have devos until 9:15.  We then start our first meeting which goes until 12:15.  We eat lunch, have another meeting, and then start activity training around 3ish after a half hour break.  During training we hear the dinner bell and eat at 5:45.  After dinner we do a group game, and then start our day's final meeting at 7:15.  The day is packed with learning and I am enjoying it immensely.

Many have asked how the weather is here.  The first two days I was here, we had warm sunny weather.  We then had a cold day or two, then two rainy days, and today has been a bit chilly, but the sun has been out.  There has been a lot of fog (which is fun, because I enjoy fog when not having to drive in it).  Today the temperature is 65 degrees.

God has been providing financially in such awesome ways.  My financial support is off to a good start all Praise to the Lord!  Thank you to all those have financially supported me, but more importantly to those who are supporting me through prayer.  I couldn't do this without you all.

We had a little over 24 hours off this weekend and it was such a blessing.  I got a bit of homework (for training) done, went into the great metropolis (cough, the population is 410) of Ekalaka and got a milkshake, then went over to Jim and Kim's for Hawaiin burgers and time to hang out.  This morning I went to the Bible church in town and enjoyed it.  They had a missionary in, so I will probably go again to specifically hear the pastor preach.  This afternoon I have gotten more homework done and had a nice skype conversation with my parents.  Training starts back up at dinner.

I can't even thank you enough for all the prayers you have given me.  Please keep them coming my way.  Also, let me know how I can be supporting you with prayer.  Grace and Peace to you.
