Last Monday I posted my letter of application to The Master's Seminary where John Macarthur is president. As you read this today, I am on a plane with my family flying from shivering Denmark to sunny Los Angeles. A letter of application and then next week I'm on a plane. Was it really that simple? Of course not, you just got the highlights package without the long drawn out process of phone calls, paperwork, packing, and moving a lot of furniture.
Right now I don't know how often I will be able to post on this blog as I enter into a period of intense academic study, but I hope that you, the reader, will come along for the ride anyway.
Please pray for my wife and three children as we embark on this seismic shift in our lives. Please pray for me that I will have the wisdom and aptitude to succeed academically (when I have never studied at this level before, or at any level!), and to balance that with my responsibilities as a husband and father. Please also pray for the pioneering church planting work going on in Denmark with our beloved brothers and sisters at Kristuskirken Reformed Baptist Church. Like I said, excitement, anxiety, and everything in between!
The next post you read will be from southern California. Maybe we can commemorate it with donuts, a traffic jam, and some out of work actors!
Paul from Adelaide has already exposed me as an 80's tragic. So I will unashamedly indulge a little and post this Neil Diamond song because it is on topic and my mum is a big fan! Love you mum!!!!
