And now it’s back to me, Brenda!  Wow, I can’t believe it’s my turn again already.  Time has been going by incredibly quickly.  A lot has been going on since I last wrote and it has been great!  A lot of what we have been doing is participating in some of the different ministries of the church.  CTI is not just about the book reading and the seminars.  It is also about living as part of the body of Christ.

One of our courses here at CTI is Ministry Practicum, and not only does this course involve reading and seminars, but it also involves assisting in some of the ministries of the church.  The ministries that we are involved in are: Mothers and Toddlers, Covenant Kids Club, and Covenanter Youth (CY).  Heather, Jasmine, and I help out with Mothers and Toddlers; Stephen and I help out with the Kids Club; and all of us help with CY.  I’ve really enjoyed being involved in these ministries and I’m really glad that it is a part of the CTI course.  It really makes you think about how you can be a more active member in your own church at home and it’s great to be involved in these parts of the church life of Airdrie. 

My favorite thing about CTI is that it’s not just about gaining knowledge about Christ and His church, but it’s also about applying this knowledge to your life.  Without applying the knowledge to your life, it won’t do you too much good. 

I hope you’ve been enjoying reading about our time here in Airdrie so far and about what we’ve been learning and such.  Keep reading!  Oh, and if you’re interested in doing the semester in Scotland for yourself, definitely do it!  You won’t regret it!
