Being able to attend the graduation in Potchefstroom was a particular blessing that my wife and I will cherish for the rest of our lives! It was a moving culmination of the years of research and writing. But, as was mentioned during the ceremony, I am reminded that receiving the PhD is not the end, but only the beginning of the journey. The graduates were charged with the responsibility to press the boundaries of knowledge through continuing research, writing, and teaching. May the Lord grant me wisdom, discipline, and strength to glorify him in new and better ways.

From a grateful graduate,
