Greetings to you 2 or 3 people who actually read my blog! I hope this Christmas season would be one that would draw you and your family closer to the Triune God during the time when the eternal Logos took upon Himself flesh to bear the sins of humanity.
I thought it about time to give you another up-date.
Tracy and I are doing very well despite the distance between us. The wedding is scheduled for July 26, 2008 and it will be Scottish themed. I’m going to wear a kilt! Don’t worry, I will post a picture of it for you all to see! Her background is the clan Fraser and mine is Lamont so we are making the wedding Scottish including shortbread, wildflowers, and hopefully a piper! Please continue to pray for the two of us as we grow in our relationship with one another and with our Lord.
Tomorrow is my last day working here at Toronto Baptist Seminary. It is with mixed feelings I leave. Administration was never something I wanted to do long term, but I will miss interacting here with the staff, faculty, and the students. I love my family and will look forward to being with them, but I do hope it is only for awhile! I do trust the Lord would put me in the place of His choosing for ministry, and at the very least, get me a job until then! There are possibilities of ministering at churches in Toronto, Peterborough, Grand Rapids, and in New Jersey. Please pray that the Lord would make it clear to both myself and Tracy and to the church where the Lord wants us. Please pray for work in the meantime.
Many of you know that I dropped out of the PhD program at the University of Wales due to funding issues. We are exploring another option which is to do the PhD at Leiden University in Amsterdam. They do not charge tuition to PhD students! I would most likely be changing focus from Andrew Fuller to John Gill and his response to Enlightenment thinking. This appeals to myself, Dr. Haykin (who would serve as a co-supervisor) and my potential supervisor at Leiden. We are in the beginning stages of the pre-application procedure and would covet your prayers.
I think that about wraps it up folks. A lot of prayer is needed from you my friends. Please pray for the Lord’s will to be revealed to us in all of these areas.
Many blessings this Advent season!
