March Update

AmbEx students were accompanied by Corban/AmbEx professor Dr. Kent Kersey (Reformation Theology) to Dachau Concentration Camp. The students had the opportunity to visit the former work camp, with many of the buildings still erect, as well as the Holocaust museum housed on site. It was a sobering visit and important historical and cultural experience.

Spring greeted Germany with a weekend of snow; it was the coldest Easter recorded in the last 40 years and students took the opportunity to borrow the local pastor's sleds for a little bit of cold-weather entertainment. Several ski-fans are excited about the opportunity the weather affords to finally partake in some Alpine adventures on the slopes; 3 students traveled to Austria this weekend to ski and snowshoe in the freshly-dumped powder.

The Free Christian Church (our adopted home) in Amberg held a Good Friday service, complete with choir specials, before the students scattered abroad on their Easter weekend. Many students took the opportunity to visit Paris over the holiday, while others ventured as far east as Budapest and as far north as Denmark.

This week, students had the opportunity to learn how to make an authentic Russian dessert with Paula Orr and Tatyana Kurill. Leftovers came in handy at our Wednesday evening bible study at the home of career missionaries Matthew & Christie Walker. Matthew exposited a passage from Matthew 9 and discussed his 30+ years of ministry experience in Central Europe.

Students are actively preparing for their last 3-week intensive course, The History and Theology of Revival and the New Birth, taught by Professor Quiggle from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, IL, who arrived this weekend.
