I woke up this morning feeling my first bit of homesickness. I had no desire to get out of bed, go to school or do anything. At some point I opened up my copy of Our Daily Bread, and the devotional for today was titled, "Believing In Advance." After readying the devotional, along with the scripture, I felt much more optimistic. I got ready and headed down for the opening ceremony. One of our student guides was outside waiting for a ride, so I was able to snag a ride to the school also! The ceremony was mostly in Norwegian, and I understood about 68% of it. The most entertaining part was when one of the student groups released a confetti bomb. After the main program was done, the international students gathered for a lecture from a very funny old professor. I've decided to share a couple of the slides from his presentation that I thought you would potentially find humorous (especially those of you familiar with Scandinavian culture).
