Final Semester

Well, it has begun: our final semester at PBU. After 10 years at PBU between the two of us, Bekah and I are entering the home stretch. In December, she will receive her B.S. in Biblical Studies with honors, summa cum laude, etc. I’ll get my M.S. in B.S. two years after completing my B.S. in B.S., thank the Laude.

It’s strange to be finishing together. Though we’re two school-years apart, we have never studied at the same institution at the same time. In my senior year of high school I took 12 credits at PBU’s now-defunct NJ campus. Then I matriculated in Fall of 2003 and finished in three years. Bekah spent what would have been her freshman year in Mexico, so she arrived just after I left. While she did her first two years, I took a year off and then went to Westminster for a year. In the wake of the Enns fiasco, I transferred back to PBU for grad studies, only to see her spend a year in Oxford. Now, finally, we get to spend our last semesters together. I’m enjoying it already.

I’d appreciate your prayers as I make several campus visits in pursuit of doctoral admission. I’m going up to Penn State next week, and then to Princeton Seminary in three weeks. Bekah is applying to several graduate programs in the US and UK, but she’ll need your prayers less than I will.
