ok i am finally posting here! im a little overwhelmed, i’m not exactly sure which pictures to post an how many etc… so i guess i’ll just give it my best shot! :) here are a few pictures of the buildings themselves. the main building. this is where we had classes, meals, and church.
guys dorm/teachers house
next i shall introduce you to my dorm.
this is a really awkward picture but i dont have a better one. from left to right we have; Mindy Nisly, Maria Gingerich, Me, Michelle Fisher, Candace Miller, Lindsay Overholt and Lindsay is holding our mascot Jeffy. :) i was really nervous about who would be in my dorm because i heard your dorm can pretty much make or break CBS. but i am happy to report that these girls were awesome and we had a great time together! maria was our dorm mom and she did a great job looking out for us and making sure we were up on time. well, me anyway! quite a few mornings she would come to my bunk and be like, rosemary do you know it’s 7:40? we had to be in chapel at 8 so i would jump up fly around getting ready. :) i guess i will try to take you through a day at CBS. you wake up in your dorm along with five other girls. we had to stagger shower and mirror time in order to all get ready in time. then it’s off to a fifteen minute chapel and then you have thirty minutes in your dorm for personal devotions. my first class was Galatians taught by Julian Nisly. this is actually Julian teaching his other class but i don’t have a picture of him in Galatians.
i had off second period and usually took a nap or wrote letters or did wash… you get the picture. :) third period was Science and the Bible taught by Benji Jackson. btw this was the day he showed a documentary. hence the blankets over the windows. and that’s the class clown front and center. :)
next was lunch and then Bible Reading and Prayer. because of my health i only took three classes instead of the required four. i had fourth period off and then fifth was Phillippians taught by Benji Jackson.
Chorus by director Clifford Stoltzfoos. it was so much fun singing with a hundred other youth! it sounded pretty awesome. :)
after chorus we had about an hour to do what you want until supper at 5:30. mostly we played volley ball and hung out. after supper we had study hall to, what else? study. then came evening chapel and then a little more hang out time before we had to be in our dorms. dorm sharing and then lights out at 10:45. then wake up and repeat! :) then there were special days light volley ball tournaments…
my team made it to the championships…
we lost by one point then but we had a lot of fun! this is my team
i dont have a picture of the winning team unfortunately. tournament day was the first saturday and evangalism was the second saturday. i have a few random pictures from that
this was my group exchanging numbers before we left
we went door to door inviting people to our chorus program and witnessing if we had a chance.
it was a bit out of my comfort zone but definitely a good experience. afterward we went out to eat before heading back to CBS
one of the last evenings we had banquet night. everyone dresses up and they decorate the dining room… its a lot of fun. :) somehow i lost my pictures of the tables and stuff so this is the only picture i have from banquet night. these were two of my really good friends. :) i hung out with them a lot. Candace Miller and Alanna Nisly.
can’t forget clash day! :)
and i have to include a few pictures of spike ball. there was pretty much always a spike ball game going on somewhere!
im just gonna post a few more random pictures that probably wont make sense unless you’ve been to CBS
and that is just a teeny tiny part of first term! ill try to post about second term eventually. life is super busy right now with planning andreas wedding. also im leaving this weekend to go to ohio for 7 weeks. so my next post will probably be from the buck eye state! night y’all!
