Seminary update

Hey Tug's Life Readers (all 10 of you), I just wanted to update you on how things are going in Seminary. I can't believe that 2 years and 3 months have already passed by since I was first accepted at Crown. When I started, I had intentions of graduation by May 2011. Wow, was I wrong about that! Of course working full-time, raising a family, and doing church work full-time takes its toll. I usually end up having to do all of my school work in the wee hours of the night. I'm not complaining but I really thought I would be finished by now and working toward my Doctorate. With the way things are going, I am shooting for graduating in May of 2012 now. I am right at half way through the program right now.

My latest course is the online version of the Pastor's College. I am enjoying this one more than any I've taken thus far. It consists of me watching Pastor Sexton give lectures and sermons on various subjects, taking notes on those and writing applications. There are 21 modules in this course and I completed number 7 tonight. I thoroughly enjoy listening to Pastor Sexton speak. Tonight's lecture was 57 minutes long and I was hanging on every word. It is so nice to be going to school for something that I love and care about as opposed to my undergraduate school work that I hated and despised. I wish I had went to Bible college instead of Technical College when I obtained my Bachelor's Degree. Oh well, you live and learn I reckon.

The courses aren't cheap but I am still counting on the Lord to provide the funds so I don't have to go into debt for it. I am still paying student loans from my Bachelor's degree and will be for several more years and didn't want to add any more debt to that. So far the Lord has provided the funds by laying it on people's hearts to donate and by providing extra money here and there. I appreciate those that have contributed and you'll never know how much it has meant to me and my family.

So anyways, that's just an update on how things are going. I earnestly desire your prayers so keep it up!

It will be May 2012 before you know it. You are doing a great job, much better than anyone else I know including myself. Keep it up and God will continue to bless.
