Week One Wrap-up

Our semester is off and running! Thank you for your prayers, all I can say is that prayer is what has made it possible for us to be here. I don't think that either of us can really explain how amazed we are at the response of our friends and family. Leading up to starting school on Monday we were stressed, emotional, lacking sleep, and just feeling plain crummy.

Here's the crazy thing - classes are still tough, the schedule is just as busy, and life is a little more hectic with three kids in the mix. Somehow through all of that the last few days have just been downright encouraging. We have settled in, reconnected with friends from last semester, gotten into a routine, and aren't getting behind on homework even though Gina's still only getting like 3 hours of sleep every night :) It really has felt "do-able" so far. We really did expect to be more overwhelmed.

This video was one of the first things we saw once we got back, and it really does start to put things into perspective. Do we really believe that people are going to spend an eternity without God unless they hear and respond to the gospel?
