I'm not sure how I've neglected this post for so long, but I've been very blessed to have some friends join me out on the farm for the past month or so. My friend, mentor, and youth ministry prof. at Bethel, Terry "T$" Linhart, and his entire family have been living with us on the farm while Terry is on sabbatical. Terry has taught three lectures in his time here and has done an incredible job each time. A quick straw poll from the other trainees has revealed that he is definitely one of the favorite lecturers we've had this year. For the past few weeks, Terry has also led our devotions every Tuesday night, giving us wisdom and practical tips for our future ministries--a time that is now affectionately referred to as "Tuesdays with Terry." It's been great to have Terry here, and it has also been cool to see his wife, Kelly, really connect with some of the girls here. His three kids, Lauren, Jayson, and Sean have also really fit in well with everyone here and I'm sure have made several long-lasting friendships. You can read all about their adventures here in South Africa on their blog.
Terry is pretty pumped up to teach us about Eschatology!
