Valentine’s Day went off without a hitch! Yay! Kathleen and I went out to a nice dinner, and then danced to Frank Sinatra for a while afterwards. It was very nice.
Sam, Avery, and Sam Wu came to visit, too. Sam and Avery went to Dallas Theological Seminary to check things out, because they’re both (actually all 3) considering applying there in the near future. They got bird poop all over my car, but that’s ok. It rained this weekend and cleaned most of it off for me. It was a lot of fun to hang out with them, just to goof off, eat, watch TV, talk, and in general, just be like old friends.
Yesterday at Northwest was a lot of fun too. All in all, it’s been a great weekend. It’s World Passion Week at Northwest, and that’s the missions week that they have each year. We got to have some missionaries from Word of Life Seminary outside of Sao Paulo, Brazil, come to speak to us, and tell us stories about their life, their students, their joys, their struggles. It was EXCITING! And we had a dinner and worship time yesterday evening as well, and got to hear from more missionaries that Northwest supports, and we even got to send off some of Northwest’s own staff, who are going to be heading out themselves. Yay! It’s so fun to be a part of a church that really takes the glory of God seriously, and sees it extending to missions, so that others may more fully know the glory of God, and their purpose in that.
I still need a roommate.
