Lights Coming On

May 15, 2009

You know I almost became a physics teacher?  Maybe it was analyzing problems or maybe it was just the inspirational effect of a good teacher on his students, but going out of high school, I thought I was studying to become a physics teacher, and I really thought I would enjoy it too. Obviously things did not turn out as I’d thought.  The Lord called, and now here we are living in Holland and loving the people God brings in our path.

Some times I think about those post-high school plans and wonder if I would have been good at teaching physics, or if teaching physics would have been good for me.  I’m not really sure, but I don’t really feel like physics was ever something that could have gotten me out of bed in the morning.  I just never loved it that much.

Still, there was something to the idea of teaching physics that I did love, and actually continue to love: teaching.

Last night after our Bible study over John 9–which was rife with aha-moments and lightbulbs turning on–I thought, “This is why I wanted to teach!”  Since being here, we have begun to see people starting to “get it” and feel myself encouraged every time.

Anyway–I guess that’s just a round about way of saying we hada  great Bible study last night, and I was really encouraged by how things went. 🙂

    This is encouraging to read Joey. Sometimes I find it very hard to not be there with you guys. I love hearing about what’s going on with ministry and life. I’m glad I can be part of this team through prayer. I love you three.
