Congratulations to our Ordinands

Several of my former students at Ming Hua were ordained to the Diaconate or the Priesthood tonight. Congratulations to them all. May they have long and fruitful ministries.

Dinner and the Police

For the first time since I’ve been here there are suggestions that protesting will occur within earshot.  So the police are beginning to appear.  So after a very nice dinner I walked around and snapped some photos.  I’ll go out later (not outside the gates of the school but up on the roof) and watch for action.

Stay tuned.

A Lovely Evening Out

Dinner with some of the students was really enjoyable and a visit to a viewing platform was amazing.  And riding in a jag on the way back to the school… well that was very cool too.

Around this Morning

Cleanup.  I’m not sure how many of these street sweeping folk there are, but it must be in the several hundreds.  And they are out every morning cleaning up the streets, by hand.  They do an amazing job.

And the selfie?  Well it’s just what I do, innit….

Today our seminar turns to Acts and Paul’s letters.  And I need to take another photo of the group.  We’ve had additions.

More anon.

Around and About this Evening, for Tea and Dinner

The Seminar Attendees are All Very Happy To be Discussing the New Testament!

New Testament Introduction

For my NT intro course I’ve been using Ray Brown’s magisterial Intro text but I’ve decided to switch over to LTJ’s intro text (3rd edition).  I think the students will really like it.  If you’ve used it, I’d be very interested in any feedback you’ve gotten from your students.  But keep in mind, mine are incredibly bright and obviously used to superior courses (since many of them have taken me for other course offerings).  😉

More From Lunch

Around this Morning, and Lunch With Some of The Ming Hua Folk

The morning session on Paul was very fun and lunch with the gang was also a blast.  Tonight we finish up with Job.

The Greek Session Went Very Well…

And ended on a high note- with many questions and much appreciation for the Greek New Testament by all who participated.  Which means it went exactly as planned.

Tomorrow we finish up Paul and Job.  And then I pack up to head home Friday.  It’s been a great two weeks and the students have been superb.

I was interviewed this afternoon, so if that’s posted with an outside link I’ll be sure to pass it along.  I’m sure you’ll be enthralled….

Here are some photos from this early eve.  I found a lovely little spot for dinner.  The chicken and rice was just brilliant.  The best places to eat are the tiny mom and pop restaurants.  Real.  Chinese.  Food.

Off the Island

A Lovely Eve

The session on Job was brilliant.  And by brilliant I mean very interactive.  Before it happened I had dinner with Gareth and his wonderful family and on the way up to their place I snapped some photos:

Out and About Before the Evening Session

I went up the escalator, walked down again, bought a couple of little gifts for a couple of little people, and got a very nice cup of coffee at a very nice little coffee shop.  I’m having dinner at 5 with the Dean and then off to the session on Job.

The Session on Greek…

Went well.  We took a look at 1 John 2.  We have one more Greek session on Wednesday.  Tomorrow and Thursday we finish up the sessions on Paul and Job.  Fun times indeed.

After Greek I wandered around a bit more, picked up some dinner at a nice little noodle place (for the equivalent of $4 including a drink) and now I’m back to the room, I think for the evening.

It’s been fairly muggy today so I’ve closed the windows and I’m using the a/c whilst sipping black tea with grapefruit and honey.  I’m going to make this for myself at home.  It’s genius.

Just a few pics to share-
