I cannot believe that it is already week four for spring quarter! This quarter is moving so much faster than I anticipated, and yet it proves that life is just too short to wait for things to happen. I am a junior theology major, so I am trying to figure out my summer intern right now, and I am really excited to see what God has in store for me over the next couple months. I am also really excited because I found out that I am preaching at the Napa Community Seventh-day Adventist church this weekend. I am so excited to have this opportunity to share God’s message.

On Tuesday, I was able to play soccer and that was such an awesome experience. I was able to be goalie, which I love because I like to be the ultimate defender. They scored on me twice in an hour, which made me feel pretty accomplished. There are so many good players in the class, and it will give me plenty of time to improve my skills.

This quarter I need to work on a Hebrew exegesis paper. I take a passage out of scripture and translate it from Hebrew to English to discover the original meaning of the text. It takes a lot of work, but the end result is worth it. I get to translate Amos 9:1-15—if you are curious, you should read it for yourself when I am finished.
