I put up a white board on the outside of our dorm room with a poll question for the guys (And sometimes a guy will write down one of the girl’s responses as well.) Here are some of the questions and answers we’ve received so far. (More to come!)

With the classes here at Master’s Baptist College in a modular format, every week we do a whole class, and the next week we do a different class. The first week was Servanthood, last week was Character and Ethics (Ended today at noon) and today we began Bible Survey 1.
Bible Survey 1 is taught by Bro. Venem, and he does a very good job. There is a lot of typing and note taking though to be sure! I think I probably gained a couple WPM on my typing speed today!
After class we have Chapel, which this week was also by Bro. Venem. He spoke Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.” He then applied it to our college life.
This evening I bought a large floor rug at Wal mart and set it up in the dorm, and moved the table from one side of the room to the other. When the other guys showed up they were pretty surprised!
Monday we will be painting the barn again if all goes according to schedule. If there is anything interesting that happens in the near future, I will make sure to put up pictures for you all.
I have been assigned to the printing ministry here at Fargo Baptist Church. This means I will be helping with the tracts that are printed. Jake and Sam were assigned to the Bus Ministry, and Dustin to the radio ministry.
Tomorrow us four will be going over to the Scheving’s to paint their barn. I bought some used clothes at Saver’s so I could not worry about getting mine messy. I filled up my printer’s continuous ink supply system yesterday so that I could continue to print stuff dirt cheap. I have been printing off stuff for class and it works out very nice. I also went to Wal-Mart yesterday and bought a folding chair and table, and set them up in the dorm. It looks very nice, and things seem quite organized now. We are finally getting completely settled in.
This morning, since Jake and Sam are in the bus ministry, they had to be out he door at 8, so Dustin and I cleaned up the dorm, since Bro Schatz said inspections will be on Sunday afternoons. So right now there are clean floors, no dirty dishes, and it all looks nice and clean.
Since the wireless internet still is spotty, Brother Venem gave us all ethernet cables and switches, so I duct-taped one from the port in the kitchen along the floor into the dorm room. It works quite nice, and I don’t have to worry about working 30 minutes to get the wireless working in the morning. It should be working completely in two weeks or so.
I printed off some coupons for our meal and the four of us also went out to Long John Silver’s today. It was a first for two of them. Dustin got a job as a morning stocker at Toy’s R Us, he will be starting Thursday. When I told him about applying at Menards, I was surprised to hear he didn’t know what Menards was. Of course, there are no Menards stores in Maine.
Yes, this post is not very flowing, and a lot of random info, but I hope it keeps you updated.
Well, it is Wednesday and still no internet in the dorms. Right now I am Arby’s to give you all an update.
My three Dorm Roommates are Dustin, Jake, and Sam. Dustin has a car as do I, but the other two ride around with us. The showers were freezing cold every morning until today when they fixed it, so now I won’t wake up as fast in the mornings. Paid for my food here at Arby’s in gold dollars, and the cashier was really impressed and told his supervisor he wanted to buy them from his drawer. He was even more excited when I told him they were uncirculated.
More frequent posting when I get the net, but for now I will talk to you all later.
Here I am in beautiful Fargo, ND.
Any guess where I am? Well, right now I am at Culver’s. The internet in the dorm won’t be set up until Monday, so I cam here with my dorm-mate Sam to use our laptops. So far I have go a job application in, as well as checked up on the news.
I also went this morning to the grocery store for some milk, orange juice and cereal. ended up getting 5 boxes of cereal for only 7 dollars. Good so far on finances!
