Most people can relate to time moving very fast. It is hard to believe, though, how fast the time has flown by since I arrived here at YWAM Lakeside back in April. Now that summer is here in Montana, we have been able to see a lot of the beautiful countryside here in the midst of continuing to have class. We've covered a lot of topics ranging from Agriculture to Church Planting to being led by the Spirit. We were also able to travel to a Native American reservation for a week and learn about how to enter a culture and begin to help them see how they fit in God's story.
It's been a great month, and I have gotten very close to my classmates and staff. These schools always come to a close very quickly, but I am so excited for everyone as we go out from here. I myself will be heading to Pennsylvania to catch up with family, then out to Colorado to meet with friends there. I am also excited to be attending a large, international YWAM conference in Tijuana, Mexico at the beginning of September.
As far as longer term, I am trying to sort out how to go about obtaining a bachelor's degree in Sustainable Agriculture so that I can work towards being able to aid communities in transforming their landscape, building community, and learning how to garden and grow food. I'm not sure how this will fall into place, but I trust that God will lead.
