Japan entry 3

July 15th part 2

Sometimes I want to draw not because it is beutiful but just because it remins me of rennisnce.  I will miss west too, I got Mrs. Cox an obsidion knife that the Inca’s used in their blood letting rituals, but actually i think it is more the Aztecst taht dit taht.  I have so much to write about, to digest.  Its like the shock of leaving has finally start to hit, let alone peru and camp an djoe and bridget and, and maybe even tony.  It just feels so good to write now.  Its like I habe had to pee for two damn months, and now, now i finally let it all out.  I am going to fast forward.  I have to talk about Joe.  Side no: I really need to talk to someone about everything so this is a first coments first talk basis.  Any ways when I thnk aobut Joe a thousand feelings come overwhelmenly, Its such a complicated tihgs its like trying to find the shape of the univers, fatail or eternal, donut or sphere or membreane?  And then ho wmany dimensions and were do they come from and why?  I want to draw that moment.  I met him I belive, back in Febuary or something but i did not see him again until a couple of weeks ago.  I did not think anything of it untl he bcem intereseted in my sister.  I became interseted in him when I saw with eyes unveiled by lustful attractino.  Not that I have it a second thought but the first time i saw him this summer i thought, wow he is hot and then i thought he was flirting with me which was odd becuse i though he was straight, which made the whole idea more exciting, more adventourous.  But then i rebuked it becuase i know God’s rightous standard, and his precepts I adore. 

and then part 3 will come later.

Name: Spencer Wentland College: North Central University Year: Senior Major:Intercultural Studies My story of meeting Jesus in short: Not many weeks after I was born my parents baptized me into the Christian faith at First English Lutheran Church in my hometown, Appleton, WI. There they renewed their promises to renounce the devil and his ways, the world and evil and raise me the same way teaching me to love and fear the Lord, the Lord's Prayer, the Ten Commandments, the Creeds and when of reading age to put the Holy Bible in my hands and all the while, with the church community, instruct me in the Christian faith. My parents weren't perfect but they did fulfill the vows they made at my baptism. I had my own more personal experience with the Lord around the age of seven when I followed Jesus out of the Gospels to a "quiet, lonely place" in my backyard with the hope to do whatever Jesus did there. Without realizing it or ever being taught how to "receive Jesus into your heart" it happened quite like that even seeing a mental vision of Jesus and knowing I need to welcome him into my heart and let him sit on the throne of my life. I've never been the same since then and the Lord has kept his promise to be with me "always." I confirmed what my parents chose for me in a public confession of faith and the ritual of believer's baptism at a local swimming school where the Assemblies of God church my mom attends used to do their baptisms. I've never regretted a life with Jesus; life has always been richer, deeper and fuller because of it. About Me: Ha that's a funny question, and a popular one today. Well, if you really want to know "all about me" you will have to meet me. For starters I am hard to put in simple categories and often find myself tumbling between labels; i.e. introverted and extroverted, strong and weak, intuitive yet a rationalist, introspective and social, unique and individual yet needing people and empathetic. I belong to and am part of the Way and that is probably the most defining important part of my being. (Acts 24:14) As a God lover in the Way of Jesus Christ I long to see and embrace all things and people in his love for his glory. Creative people and places energize me. I enjoy and appreciate art and artists and like to contribute and collaborate in making my own art at times. I need my own time and spend a lot of time in contemplation- this is where I get recharged and new vision and vitality for life. A con of my personality is my ill attempts to understand everything about everything. At the same time I also get energy from others and love to be sociable. I make matrix like connections in my mind and although my comments often are perceived as random too me they are very connected to something. To me connection and harmony are very important and I believe the truth brings that out. The last few years have been filled with learning, studying and meeting wonderful people. Copenhagen, Escanaba, Nagasaki, and now back to Minneapolis! So excited to learn, grow and finish my last year at university! Call: I feel strongly called by the Lord to work and give myself as missionary of love to the Japanese people. As the Lord leads I hope to take a missionary assignment through ELCA Global Mission teaching English and serving in congregational mission and leadership in Japan. Eventually I would like to serve as an apostolic worker planting boiler rooms (missional/monastic communities) around the Japanese archipelago with a bunch of other Jesus lovers in international, incarnational bands of friends. About this blog: This blog is for my Church Administration and Personal Finance class. I'm looking forward to interesting and practical conversation and learning that will help develop my leadership and organizational skills for however and whatever takes shape out of the Lord's call.
