This has been an interesting week so far. Some of us are still recovering physically from the demands we placed on our bodies during the trip to Big Sandy, and everyone seems a bit tired. But we are excited; only nine more days until we head back home and get to see our families again! While we are eager to return home, we will miss the friendships we have deepened here and all the classes and speakers.

We finished up our sessions with Lauren Bell today. She spent the day talking to us about the blessings of boundaries, full time Christian ministry, when God works outside the box, and treasures of darkness. All of her sessions have been very good and make you think.

In the evening, everyone headed outside for fresh air and volleyball. We played several games of volleyball, some people jogged around the parking lot, others sat and cheered the players on. It was good to get outside and look at the stars and skyline of Dallas.

We have several papers due on Monday and Wednesday, and a speech on Monday. We are also working on memorizing Ephesians 1. Please pray that we would be able to get all our assignments done well to the glory of God.

Continue to pray for us, as we pray for y'all too!

In Christ,

Anna McElmurray
