Quiet Saturday

Well, Today I have a paper to write. 6-8 Pages on Open Theism (which, in my opinion is a totaly heresy) for Doctrines class. Brad, on the other hand, got to go with the youth group to an equine therapy place for children with disabilities. They're going to be working out there for the day, so it should be fun for them.

The career fair went ok. There wasn't a whole lot in the way of ministry stuff there, but I did learn a couple things. First, I don't think DTS is in my future. It just isn't feasible at the moment. I wouldn't be able to test out of much nor would I be able to do much of it online. So that means I have complete a lot of the degree on campus, and we're just not in a place where we can facilitate going to Dallas every day. I also talked to some of the school districts about what it would take to get certified and teach. Most of them said that i can teach in much needed areas (math and science) next year as long as I am able to enroll in an alternative certification program. So I might consider doing that. I do kind of feel like I shouldn't do that though because my degree is in ministry. I don't know, it kind of feels like a waste of my time to have gotten this ministry degree if I am just going to be a teacher. But I guess I'll just have to get over that and see what the Lord gives me in the next couple of months. Maybe a Church job will come along.

I'm slowly hearing back from a few people about the trip to Australia. We had a meeting on Thursday and I found out some info. First, they moved up the deposit deadline to December 1st because of air fares and visas. Second, we can't sign up until December 1st, so I have to go wait in line at 8:00 am to sign up for the trip. I hope I can get a spot, I'm sure I can because 1500 dollars is a lot of money I'm sure a lot of people won't have. Third, we'll be going into the Outback for 7 days to visit with the Aborigine tribes and work in their schools along the way.

I'm hoping to save up enough money that I can get a decent camera before I go to Australia (if I can go. Haha). I would love to get an entry-level dslr, but they're expensive. Even for the low end ones. So if that's not feasible, I at least want to get a better point and shoot. Mine is older now, and the technology has improved so much since I got it.

Well, I need to get started on my paper and get my day started!
