Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! (from a while ago...sorry!)

Hey everyone!!!

Hope you all had a great Christmas and are gearing up for a very happy New Year! I'm currently in Botswana, celebrating with John. The big news is....drum roll please...We're ENGAGED!!! That's right, he popped the question...and of course I said yes! I'll write more about it later, but yeah, all I can say is that this relationship is such evidence of God's grace in our lives. I can see how He was in control of every bit of it, in the good times and in the bad. But like I said, I'll write more about that later :)

Anyway...other updates...

School this year is so much better than last year...and so much busier! It's a systems based approach so we go through one system at a time and concentrate just on that instead of studying 4 or 5 different subjects at a time. Each system is usually covered in about 3 weeks, so I have to be on top of things a lot more this year compared to last year. To top things off, I'm also learning Arabic, which is not an easy language! Even with the business, it's good though, because for the first time, we're learning things that we actually need to know for everyday clinical medicine. We're also doing clinical Hebrew right now, and actually getting to interview patients. If nothing else, I know it's making me look forward to 4th year when we'll be back in the US and will be able to do interviews in English!!

Well, that's it for now! Love you all!
