Fall Semester Wrap-Up


Now that the excitement and fun of going back to school has waned, I find myself in the midst of a long, slow grind. This semester was the hardest yet in terms of its workload (my last assignment was due by 11pm on Thursday, and I worked on it up to the last minute!). Nonetheless, my seminary experience continues to be a positive, rewarding one. It is a labor of love.

Now that the semester is over, I am dealing with a slight financial deficit. Keeping 2 Thessalonians 3:10 in mind, I’m looking into what my options are for additional income to help pay for school next year. I’m committed to my job at CCC, so whatever work I pick up will be in addition to what I do there. If you’d like to help lighten the load, there are ways you can support me financially – just click here for more information.

All that said, I’m looking forward having January off from school; it will give me a chance to rest, work on my licensing paper, and do some just-for-fun reading for a change 🙂

In the support letter I sent to my family and friends in September, I wrote the following:

More than anything, I ask for your prayers. In each of my letters, I ask for you to pray that I will trust Jesus to provide the spiritual, physical, emotional, and financial stability needed to complete my studies. Without God’s provision in all of these areas, I will burnout far before I reach my academic goals. Throughout the semester, something as simple as a text or a Facebook message to let me know you’re praying for me will go a long way.

All I have to say is thank you! Whether you prayed for me, shared words of encouragement, or made a financial contribution, it all made a huge difference. With your help, I’ve successfully completed another semester of school, and by the grace of God, I’m one step closer to earning a Master of Divinity.

Merry Christmas!
