Well...today was my last day of taking
classes at Western Seminary!!! Hooray!!

It's true!!! My classes at Western Seminary have come to an end! While I still have a lot of work left to do on my Integrative (thesis) Paper, which I will turn in at the end of August, and I will be at my internship until the end of August as well, my classes are over! It feels good to have one more step in the process complete. Today I have been reminded again and amazed at God's faithfulness to me in this process.

We have an interview with local pastors and search committe on Thursday evening for the North Vancouver church plant position. So, please keep us in your prayers. We also continue in the interview process with the other two churches. We can't wait to make some decisions and start the next part of our life!

Well, the phone interview with Visaila went well. Thank you all for praying!! We have another phone interview with a church in Grand Rapids, MI on Tuesday of next week. We have another interview with local pastors for the north Vancouver church plant position on the 31st of this month. So, you can continue to keep us in your prayers. We are excited to be on this adventure. We know God is going to lead us exactly where He wants us to be, and we are excited to go wherever he leads. Continue to pray for wisdom and discernement on our part to know where God is leading!
I have four more days of classes left!!! Yeah!! My last official class is a week from Tuesday. I am down to two major papers left to get done. So, I still have quite a bit of work left to do, but the light at the end of the tunnel is becoming brighter. :) Woo-Hoo!!
We bought me a bike a few weeks ago, so Brad and I have been having a good time exploring lots of trails around Wilsonville. It's been really good to get out and exercise, and it's something fun we can do together. I had been wanting a bike for a while, and we'd been looking around, so I was excited to get one!
I haven't taken a single picture all summer. I need to get better about doing that, so I can make my posts more fun. :) Hopefully I can add some pics soon! Thanks for all your prayers and support! Leave us a comment, we would love to hear from all of you!
-Steph and Brad

Hello, hello!!! Hope everyone is having a great summer!! We have been keeping busy, as usual!! I have a little over a month left of classes before I am completely done. YEAH! I am also busy working on my thesis paper, which I will turn in in August as well. The end is in sight, though, and I am SO excited!!!
You can continue to keep us in your prayers. This last week we heard back from two churches we turned our applications/profiles into. One is is Visalia, CA, and the other is in Grand Rapids, MI. We have set up phone interviews with both churches in the next week. We also turned in our application for the church planting position in north Vancouver, WA. So, we have three opportunities in front of us, and we'll see where the interview process takes us. We are excited to be in this adventure and see what God has for us. You can continue to pray for wisdom and discernment on our part to know where God is leading us. Thanks for all your prayers!
