Some second year students suggested we share the following comments about our new journey with our families and friends.
This journey is going to be very difficult. We covet your prayers and support as we start down the road (or as Karin continues down the road) of being full-time employees and full-time students. Every ten weeks we will begin a new course full of new challenges, new books, new content to learn, etc. Our lives won’t be the same for the next two years. Unfortunately, we may not be able to come visit you all as often as we would like. We won’t be able to call, facebook, or email as much as we would want. We are trying to become more educated in the fields we feel the Lord leading us towards and thus, our attention must be tilted towards our studies. Please bear with us as we may not be as involved in your lives as we would like. Know this will be hard for us, but we would appreciate your understanding and support. We ask that you don’t hold it against us and take it personal if we seem a bit ‘off the grid’ for the next two years. We promise to play catch up once we have finished our program and have adjusted back to a ‘normal’ life.
We are very excited about the direction we are heading and ask that you send us your love, understanding and unyielding support. Oh and if you have any advice on how we can do all of this, please tell! We are still trying to figure out who is going to do the laundry and the housework!
Ben and Karin
