TopicA Transcript of God's Sovereignty

    There's a doctor's son, Matt, who is a sophomore in college now. He's participating in a program in Irian Jaya   Overthrowing Anxiety  It's called "The Edge Adventure." That's a small, fairly-new program, and academically, it's really quite rigorous. The students probably write more papers in this semester than they do if they were at home. But the papers are written out in longhand, and they're written mostly by candlelight. Yet, most of the learning, as you might imagine, doesn't happen in the classroom, but instead comes from living among "Stone-Age" people and being fully immersed in a totally different perspective and culture.There's a doctor's son, Matt, who is a sophomore in college now.

    Matt was only able to call home once in the first three months. The first thing he mentioned was about the mail service. It is notoriously unreliable. Both Linda, his mom, and Laurie, his girlfriend, have sent him dozens, even scores of letters, but, for a time, Matt hadn't gotten any mail for about five weeks. Realizing in advance that this was going to be the situation, Linda and Laurie numbered their letters sequentially so that Matt would know if he's getting his mail, and if he's getting it in a timely fashion. And Matt says he got Laurie's letter number seven and then five weeks later he got her letter number 22. He didn't know what was in letters eight through 21, but when he read letter number 22, he knew that everything was okay. See, the details could be filled in later.
