The website (like my email) refers to me as “Doc” Cochran. The reason I picked this name is that I have known for some time that the Lord was calling me to further study, including study to the point of earning the PhD. I believe I have now accomplished that task. I must only complete the formatting corrections related to my dissertation, and I should graduate in May with a PhD.
Now, the task is to live up to the title. So, I am prayerfully considering how to continue to study and what to continue to study. I am leaving in the morning for the Philippines, where I will be serving for 2 weeks. I hope you will pray for me during that period, as I am seeking from the Lord direction for further study and for putting into usefulness what I have learned thus far. I am not seeking a position, a different pastorate, or anything like that. I am seeking to be a useful servant for Christ’s sake. Thank you for praying for me.
