My freshman year of college, I walked into my dorm kind of nervous and afraid, but fortunately there was a kind girl named Lisa Voth that lived a couple doors down from me. She was quirky, full of life, and welcoming and thus we became friends quickly. The next year, we went to Israel through a program at our college and were roommates. I was struggling in my classes because I did not know much of anything about the Old Testament coming into the program. However, Lisa was very patient with me and time and time again explained about how the Israelites were led into exile, about the role of the prophets, and about the various kings that ruled. I attribute me passing those classes to Lisa – she taught me so much.
