Our sessions with Mr. Davis started at nine this morning. We were all very tired today from lack of sleep, but eager to hear the word of truth. Today we talked about covenants. How they were instigated, what happened in the ceremony, and why a blood sacrifice was so important. We then talked about the New Covenant and how we are in a blood covenant with God, sealed with Christ’s blood. We have greatly enjoyed our time with him, and are looking forward to our sessions tomorrow, which include a question and answer time. Mr. Davis definitely challenges you to examine what you believe and be sure that you are basing everything on Scripture.
We also began the altering class with Amy Elam. We mainly discussed what alterations were needed for the garments that we brought. We’ll start the actual work tomorrow afternoon. At lunch and dinner the AE girls sat with the Excel girls, getting to know them and trying to encourage them. After all, we were Excel girls at one time too. We have learned how important it is to cultivate good relationships and that these friendships will last beyond the 8 weeks.
Our homework assignments are also staring us in the face, demanding our attention amidst everything else that is going on. We never seem to have quite enough study time to get everything done that we want to. Please pray for good use of our time and for mental blocks to be eliminated.
I am personally just beginning to see why God had me come here to Advanced Excel. I needed to know, really know, who God is and who I am in Him, before I could even think of doing any ministry opportunities. There is no way that I could counsel someone who was struggling with knowing God or even knowing themselves, if I had a false idea of it all myself. While I can’t say that I am confident in everything yet, I am beginning to understand far more. I am praying that God will reveal himself to me in new and glorious ways during AE.
Please continue to pray for us, as we pray for y'all too!
For all the girls of Advanced Excel 17
