Scotland, here we come!
Last time we talked (see previous update here), we were waiting to hear back from three schools about Darren's application to the one-year Master of Theology degree - University of Aberdeen (our first choice), University of Edinburgh and Princeton.
On Thursday, Darren received an email from a Professor at Aberdeen (John Webster, with whom he has been in contact during this process). The email stated that the school was ready to mail Darren an offer letter, but wanted to know if Darren was interested in doing a PhD instead of the one-year MTh.
Wow! We were taken completely by surprise. It took all weekend just to get use to the idea of spending three years in Scotland, instead of one year. Darren also had to adjust his thinking to the idea of a U.K. PhD instead of a U.S. PhD.
After a conversation on the phone with John Webster, many discussions about what this would mean for our family, and some serious prayer, Darren told them to send a letter for the PhD program. So, we are going to Scotland next year!
About the next few months ... we plan be in Princeton until the end of July, then we will travel to the Northwest for a few weeks to visit family and friends. In September, we will be off to Aberdeen. More info to come soon!
