For the last couple of months, this has been what the main road through the seminary looked like. It has been with uncertainty and a bit of trepidation that we would venture out each morning. Where will the trucks be? What part of the road will be inaccessible? What's the best route to take? The route may have been circuitous, and bumpy, but unlike parts of New England where, "You can't get there from here,"we could get there, but it's been a challenge. I have a new appreciation for Isaiah's imagery, especially of making the uneven ground smooth.
Progress has been made since this picture was taken. Yesterday they were putting asphalt on the road. When I went to class in the morning, there was none. Later, on the way to chapel, part of one side was done. By the time lunch was over, the other side was done.
Because of the need to daily take different routes, Amity has not yet completely learned her way around campus. Once the work is completed, however, it won't take long for Ray and Amity to get around as easily as Ray and Abby did. In the meantime, everyone on campus has been very helpful and supportive. Rather than the long and winding road, our long and bumpy road is more easily walked with friends.
