I'm writing from Chicago, where I'm staying with a friend from Wheaton. It's cold and rainy here.
We have more good news to share. I got a call from Marianne Meye Thompson yesterday of Fuller Seminary (Pasadena, California). I'm accepted into their PhD program in Theology, and they've offered me a full scholarship for the first two years! We still have 3 more schools we're waiting to hear from before we make our decision. Pray that we would be sensitive to God's leading.
After 21 months of pretty intense preparation for this, we're very, very grateful to have open doors.
