How are all of you?

Wow, looks like you've all been having fun Bright Lights meetings!

Things have been going well for me.
I'm at a more interesting part of my stay here when I'm travelling around and not just staying at the Indianapolis Training Centre. I'm currently in Chicago at IBLP's headquarters and it has been so nice being here after hearing so much about the place.

Its getting very pretty around here now. It is supposed to be spring so there are lots of beautiful flowers everywhere.

One verse that I've been meditating on is Psalms 139:23-24

It says: "Search me, O God, and know my heart, try me and know my thoughts and see if there be any wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting."

I have been thinking about how important our heart is recently.

I was also reading a book and it was talking about the difference between learning spiritual truths with our intellect and with our heart. When we learn spiritual truths with our intellect, we are just learning with our brain that is why we sometimes find it so hard to apply it into our lives. It is only when we learn with our heart that we have really learned it.

Wow, this is hard to explain!

Anyways, I guess I'm just making sure that I am using my heart to think and learn spiritual truths and not just storing the information up in my brain.

Time has passed so quickly!
I can't imagine its almost June;)
I have been in Chicago for the past two weeks. I'll be leaving here for Wisconsin this weekend and will be staying there with a friend for a week. Then I'll be going back to Indianapolis for 3 weeks, then I'll be coming back to Chicago, going to Northwoods and then to Iowa to visit the Mally's. Just thought I would give you an update on what I'm doing;)

It was really nice how things worked out in the end. I think I told some of you about how one of my courses was canceled and that I would have had 5 weeks with nothing to do as a result of that, but God worked it out and I got to do so much more instead. I got to come here (Chicago) for another course which was really interesting and also to visit a friend I got to know on one of my courses-that's the friend in Wisconsin;)

Its also been so funny to be here and meet Mr. Bill Gothard and speak with him.
You know how we spend long hours watching him speak at the Basic Seminar, and to actually see him in person feels weird. We went to his church last Sunday in the van with him and after church he asked us what we learned during the service! Good thing I had really enjoyed the service and learned something!

Sorry, I haven't been able to get access to the internet easily recently so have not been able to keep in touch. And I'm also kind of in a hurry now so this post is not as organized as I would like it!

Anyways, here are some more photos...

walking to a nearby town

The town!

Okay, I really have got to go. So have a great day!! Really missing all of you!



  1. Hey Jolynn,

    Really glad to hear more about how you're doing in the US! Everything looks so pretty over there. It reminds me so much of my grandparent's house in Calgary, Alberta. And looking at the photos makes me miss them, and Canada. And you too, of course!:D
    I'm glad you're enjoying your travels. It's such a blessing to be able to travel places!:)haha..
