Back from Break!


Hey it’s Sean! This week started off with our first official day back at Joshua after Thanksgiving break. How did we choose to celebrate you may ask? By decorating the building for Christmas! It was such an amazing thing getting to help ring in the new holiday by getting creative with my Joshua family on […]


Snowballs Show Jesus’ Love

Blog Picture 2

Hey, it’s Naomi! So this past week has been filled with snowball fights, sledding, and snowmen. Needless to say, we got our first real snow! It may have only snowed for one day, but it made for a great rest of the week. Hume completely changes once it’s covered in a thin, white layer of […]


Always Learning and Having Fun

Wow! This week has been overwhelming, but a blessing in disguise. From balancing homework to hanging out with everyone and work as well as class, the community has learned time management and the art of procrastination. This certain art didn’t really come in handy as we had to complete our first paper. Luckily, after many […]


Jonah, Sweeps and World Religions


This week was our first “real” week in the building. We had a full schedule of classes and started our sweeps. We got our first big assignment, a synthesis paper on the book of Jonah. We are all scrambled like eggs around the building trying to find a quiet spot to do our work. Most […]

This weekend was great! Thursday we got to hang out with our pause families again! We are all beginning to grow so much closer to them; it’s the best feeling to have a family to hang out with while we are all missing our own. It was so nice to have a home cooked meal […]

This has been an awesome week in more ways than one! We have had great classes about how to study the Bible, Creationism vs. Evolution, and a wonderfully magnetic speaker telling us what to expect from other cultures we will soon be visiting and how to find our identity in Christ. Our catalyst couple, Gayleen […]


Ropes! Burgers! Hail?


This past weekend we had people working all around camp! Our brothers and sisters worked in areas like High Adventure, Pondy Kitchen, Snack shop, Maintenance, Support Services, and Activities for the couple’s retreat. We had a lot of interactions with all the couples when it came to renting out a boat, serving and preparing meals, […]


Etiquette Dinner


To kick off the year, one of our first themed dinners was actually an Etiquette Dinner. Though it sounds boring by the name, it was amazing! Not only was the dining hall completely decked out with “French Countryside” decor: flowers, French music, French food like beef bourguignon and even a slideshow of paintings by French artists, but […]


Becoming Very Well-Rounded!


We are just two days short of our first full week here at the Joshua Wilderness Institute, and though we are still in the process of settling in, the community that has begun to form is already phenomenal. Through preparing meals, climbing trees, praying with our pinkies, and just enjoying time together, some awesome friendships […]
