How many of you have been through a dry season of faith? Hearing God’s voice is difficult during this silent and lonely season. But we can find peace knowing that even when we don’t feel God, He is still hard at work, humbling, teaching, and preparing us for something greater.
Many years ago, God met senior Christion Seymour in the desert. After leaving an abusive relationship, Christion’s mom moved their family to Mojave (the literal desert). Although Christion spent much of his childhood searching for connection and acceptance, it was in the desert that God finally revealed himself. “The time I spent in Mojave was pivotal to my faith. God brought me to the desert to heal and get closer to him,” said Christion. God used this experience to prepare Christion for the next chapter of his life.

How’s the Hybrid Life?
“I have learned that I thoroughly enjoy more in-person learning + being able to be present amongst my professors and peers. However, learning through a hybrid method has forced me to be more organized + work in different environments that aren't solely the classroom.”
Pros: the lectures are recorded which makes it convenient to do class anywhere, anytime! The most random place I’ve done school is on the floor in the hall of my wing. I just sat down and didn’t feel like getting up 😂
Cons: technical difficulties, wifi can be a pain sometimes, especially when everyone is on it at the same time
Advice to past self: be aware of how you learn best (visually, auditory, etc.).

“What an odd season we are living in! It’s in times like these where I just want to back out quietly with my hands raised high holding a white flag; telling God, “Aye, imma tap out until this is all sorted.” How easy would that be!! Though, I was reminded of John 15:16, “You did not choose me but I chose you and appointed you so that you should go and bear fruit...” WE have been appointed and chosen for such a time as this!! Warriors, I’m here to remind you guys of your position in God’s story. He’s the one that chose you and continues to choose you! He will never leave you or forsake you (Joshua 1:5)! Take for instance Job from the Old Testament. If you don’t know the story of Job’s life, go take a look. Even when God gave the okay for everything to be taken from Job, a faithful man, He was still there conversing with him and hashing things out. Life was so tough for Job BUT in a time of grief, anxiety, worry, and hardship, He was reminded of who was FOR him (Romans 8:31). God still chose Job and appointed him, just like you and I. No matter what is going on! Know that YOU ARE CHOSEN! Armor up, Warriors! Stay Strong & Bold.” -Debra Hay, Senior ... See MoreSee Less
Online learning has been an adjustment this year, hear what Profesor Granchukoff has to say about it!
“Just like anywhere in life, we have to adjust and remain flexible. Instead of focusing on how online learning is unlike face-to-face classes, I prefer to look at the advantages that online learning allows. Breaking into and back out of groups for a large class discussion now takes seconds instead of minutes and there is no longer a “front” or “back” of the class. Everyone is on equal footing and expected to participate the same. With online learning, students cannot “hide” in the back. I love to use this as an opportunity to draw students out.”

Happy Wednesday, Warriors! You’re halfway through the week, here’s a student devo to brighten your day 🔆
“Isn’t cool that even if it’s cloudy or raining the sun still sets even if we don’t see it. There is still a beautiful sunset behind the storm.
2020 is like a storm that we are all eagerly waiting to pass just so we can finally enjoy the beautiful sunset behind it. Lately I have been convicted in the sense that in the Bible it tells us to embrace adversity, to find joy in the storm, and to praise God in the middle of a struggle. Daniel 3:8 is a verse that I tend to come back to a lot . It begins with “But even if he doesn’t...", I like to fill in my current circumstance in the verse. “But even if he doesn’t” God is still good. Even if 2020 wasn’t what we wanted, it was what we all needed. He is good on His own. As we go into this school year, have hope that this storm isn’t forever, but our God is forever.”- Bre Anderson, Sophomore ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you to all who attended Bryce Jessup’s memorial this past weekend.
“So many of you sacrificed your time and talents to help make his ‘graduation celebration’ a time that not only honored my dad, but glorified God. Now my father would probably say ‘let’s roll up our sleeves and keep the mission of WJU in sight as we follow after Christ and His calling on our lives’. Blessings as you press on!” -Jim Jessup ...
