We had safe and uneventful travel and a very busy first week in the Netherlands. Most of our time and energy has been focused on getting our house set up and livable, getting paperwork in order, and meeting the new students as they have arrived. God has blessed many of the transitional details and we are getting past most of the paperwork hurdles associated with an international move.
My first class starts tomorrow morning at 9:00! Please pray for all the new students as they are also transitioning to a new culture and new living arrangements as they begin studying Greek. The students taking summer classes at Tyndale come from Ghana, Belgium, Suriname, Ethiopia, Myanmar (Burma), Albania, Nigeria, Finland, Georgia, Rwanda, Germany, Netherlands, and China. We also have a few students from America who have come to study on the mission field in Tyndale’s rich multi-cultural environment. Please remember us in your prayers during this first week of classes as we also seek to move from the student dorms into our new house.
