Beginning of L&E’s blog…

To our dear Friends and Family–

It is our desire to keep you updated as we continue on with training at New Tribes, which is why we are starting this blog. We greatly appreciate and covet your prayers as we continue to learn, grow, and seek our Savior’s direction in this journey!

In nearly 3 weeks we will be married 6 months. This hardly seems possible!  About halfway into the Fall semester here at NTBI, Lane continues to work diligently in the kitchen as an intern while I finish my final year as a student and work per diem at a nearby hospital. It really is a blessing having a husband that enjoys cooking:) We have a blast trying out new recipes together and are grateful for our perfect-sized apartment kitchen.

To give you a better glimpse into our lives at this point,  a typical week for us would be class/work in the mornings, studying/work in the afternoons, and more studying/classes or fellowship time with other students in the evenings.  Lane is currently taking Perspectives on the World Christian Movement on Tuesday evenings, which we are both soaking up. So neat to see God’s heart for missions unfold throughout Scripture as the different speakers present each week. We HIGHLY recommend taking this course whether you are considering missions or not.  This semester we also started helping with the Sunday morning kids ministry at Rives, the church we’re attending right now.  Nothing like seeing children learn, memorize, and grow in God’s word. We love it and are learning so much from them!

It’s time to hit the books again, but Lane and I want to let you know that we are extremely grateful for your place in our lives and desire to keep in touch as we finish NTBI and prayerfully take the next steps in the training process . We’ll try to update this blog periodically so you know where we are at and how you can specifically pray. We’d love to know how we can be praying for you too. Hope to write more soon.


Lane and Emily Bargeron
