    I have enjoyed my time here on the BB and made a bunch of friends (as well as an enemy or two, I suppose). However, next week I am returning to college at the ripe old age of 55 (after being out of college for 29 years) to begin working on a Master's degree.

    I covet your prayers for me as I take this step of faith. I need to complete this degree so that I can move on to what I believe is God's plan for me in the future.

    I will drop in from time to time, so this is not "Adios" ("Goodbye") but it is "Hasta luego" ("See you later").

    Please pray that I be a good testimony for Jesus as I attend the college. It is a fruitful mission field.

    May God bless you all richly,

    Mexdeaf

    It's only too late to get more education when you are dead!

    Enjoy!

    University of Texas Pan-American. Working towards a MS in Rehabilitation Counseling. I have had offers to teach in the colleges here (I have tons of 'real-world' experience in dealing with this in the USA and Mexico) but the lack of a Master's is holding me back. I also see the colleges as fruitful mission fields, not only for reaching the students but also the teachers. God has given me some wonderful open doors in those places.

    I am excited but fearful because so much has changed technologically since I left college 29 years ago.

    Thank you all for your prayers.
