Here is Bible College Update IV: the abbreviated version. I apologize that it has been so long, and I apologize that this will be such a broad stroke, but I wanted to share some exciting stuff that’s been going on lately.
We’re Making an EP!
After Christmas break, we did Songwriting II and Project Production, where we spent most of our days in the beautiful recording cabin on campus writing and recording songs. The tracks are being mixed and mastered by our wonderful professor Barry Patterson. I’ll let you know when it’s ready–I’m super excited about it! It was amazing to create such an amazing project with such an amazing group of people.
We are going on tour!
We have been split onto two teams to do ministry tours for the next 10 days. Genoveve’s team is doing northern Alberta, and the team I’m on will be going through Montana, Idaho and BC. Using some music, skits, testimonies, videos and preaching we’ll be talking about trusting God in the midst of uncertainty. Please pray for us as we travel around in vans and u-haul trailers that God would use us to show his love to the churches and schools we visit and that we would have grace for each other as we spend considerable amounts of time in cramped quarters.
This is what I’m probably most excited about! Two weekends ago when we were home I asked Genoveve to marry me.. and she said yes! We are super excited about this next step in our lives and we’ll have lots more to say about it when we get back from tour!
There is so much more to say about what’s been going on lately, but at least here are some highlights and pictures. God is so good, and even amidst bouts of frustration, weariness or outright bitterness he has been molding my heart and taking out the bad stuff and replacing it with his love. I am so thankful for the people around me and the place that I’m in and I simply can’t take it for granted.
All the best,
