Today is Tuesday and we roll out of bed like always, heading for God, Humanity, and Knowledge after breakfast. Our professor divides us into groups and assigns everyone one chapter of the book Simply Christian by N.T. Wright to read and then present in class on Thursday or Friday. We are also presenting three or four minute testimonies on those days. I'm excited! Our first full-fledged college presentations!

We beat the basketball girls to lunch once again and then a group of us took off for creative writing (with a PA for the first time!) and actually found our way without getting lost. :) Dr. Hensley's class was amazing as always, several of us decided afterward that we wished we could be taping it. You always leave so inspired and fired up. He's a master storyteller, and he plays every part in every story that he tells us. We're all on the edge of our seats, living it the entire time.

After dinner Madeline, Carolina (who if from Ecuador, isn't that awesome?) and I went over to the music building with Elizabeth because she wanted to practice her piano lesson and didn't want to walk alone. She's REALLY good. We heard her play a song, and then the three of us returned to Madeline's dorm to do homework. 

We had our active presence small groups at seven, and then headed back to the dorms. I read in the lobby for a little while, and then we had world prayer time. Allow me to explain: On Monday night this girl named Mackenzie Taylor told us all that she'd brought a huge world map with her from home for no apparent reason. It hangs on the wall over her bed. A whole bunch of us decided to meet every night at about eleven in her room and have someone close their eyes and choose a country from the map. Most of the time someone looks up facts from that country on their ipad, and then we all pray for that country. It's really, really, cool. We mark that country on the map and then write down the date and the country's name on a bulletin board in the hall. Awesome!

Can't wait for tomorrow!
