True Bacheller Tradition

Well, in keeping with true Bacheller tradition, we've started off our family with a BOY! Yep, it's true! I mean, did you expect otherwise? It's almost impossible to expect a girl, I mean, look at the odds in Ben's family! 5 boys in a row, then finally, a girl! Hope it doesn't take THAT long for us to have a girl! :-) Even so, we're excited, and hope you are too! This guy was moving all over the place during the ultrasound, I'm thinking he's going to be a strong-willed child! You never know...

Yep, both of us have jobs, and we're excited classes are starting up this Wednesday. I'll be taking Systematic Theology I, Gospels, & Foundations of Spiritual Development. Anxious to get started!

If you're passing through the area, in Columbia, SC, don't hesitate to give us a call or stop in for a quick visit! We'd love to see you!

Keep in touch,
Ben & Becky.

In Columbia--@CIU

Howdy folks. Well, we've arrived and almost finished moving in to our new home here in SC! We're excited to have our own place, settle down (if that's possible with a kid on the way!) and enjoy life a bit. I'm (Ben) looking forward to classes at the seminary, and Becky's got a job she's been waiting and praying for. She's already started orientation at the hospital to work on an OB floor! No more medical/surgical/oncology for a while! She'll be learning all about what goes on with the moms and babies (not to mention, she'll be taking care of them and directing/teaching them), since it's a post-partum floor she's going to be on.
For myself, I'll be taking three classes (Principles of Spiritual Development, Gospels, and Systematic Theology I) and working part-time. Not sure WHERE that work's going to come from yet, but it'll come...

If you want to get ahold of us, our number is (803)233-3608, and you are more than welcome to give us a buzz. We'll even call you right back so WE can pay the phone bill, not you. :-)

In Transition`

Howdy folks! Becky and I are in Florida as I type this, preparing to pack up our stuff and move to South Carolina! We've enjoyed the hospitality of friends here at our church and at ECHO, hosting us during this time of transition. A great surprise this past Sunday was that our Sunday school here in Fort Myers threw us a baby shower party/going away party! We enjoyed spending some more time with them before setting off again on this new adventure. Nevertheless, we're excited to finally get "home", to our own place in Columbia, SC.
During our time back to the States, we've been to Chicago, then western New York state, then Chicago again, and then Florida now, and soon in SC. As we leave on Thursday, please pray for safe travels. God has protected us up to now, and we're thankful for that. We just found out that our licences had been suspended, b/c of no insurance on the car while overseas, which meant I couldn't drive, and we also couldn't get insurance on our car for only a few days in FL...etc, beaurocracy, I'll tell ya! Anyhow, the Lord worked all that out and we're legal now to drive. Whew! Thought I'd have to drive that rental truck illegally! (just joking).
And for those of you wondering, Becky's now four and a half months along in the pregnancy, and everything seems to be going well, thank the Lord!
Anyhow, keep in touch! We hope to see many of you in the near future!
In Christ, Ben & Becky Bacheller.
