We're a little over halfway through this semester. We've both pre-enrolled for next semester. This also happens to be our last semester! Yes, I talked to the Academic Dean, and he said he'll let me walk this May, instead of having to wait until 2013! Aside from this being a big deal in terms of getting a degree, it also means I get to keep a promise I made to myself: to graduate college before my little brother graduates high school.
We both have got our applications for the PACT Internship turned in. We now wait until the first week of December when we will officially find out if we're accepted. We both appreciate prayers for us in this regard, as well as for the coaching team who will be making decisions. If accepted, we will separate from our home church for approximately nine months, and learn what it is like to start a house church with about ten others. Throughout the internship we will do different modules, such as experiencing public transportation, or going to an international grocery. We will try to write at least once per each module.
In other news, we finally settled with the insurance company of the guy who hit us back in mid-August. It wasn't the outcome we know we deserve, but 70% is better than nothing (and we don't really feel like it'd be worth going to court over the remaining $400.) Thank you for prayers about this.
Finally, we are wondering if any of you have dealt with Rosetta Stone, especially the German version. Does it work? Is it worth it, or would you recommend waiting to go through language school?
That's all for now,
Grace and Peace
