Stephan passed his exams! Hurray! He got a 3.5 (equivalent to a C), which is till-now the best grade in his class. Rumour has it that 60% of the people failed Germany-wide. This is such a great Christmas present cos we were praying that he would pass with a 3.5, so that his orals would be a piece of cake. His oral exams would be in January 2009 and this is when they will fail those people who marginally-passed and are not good enough to be tax advisors. So far, there hasn´t been anybody who has failed the orals with a grade of less than 4. Ok, grade-wise, the less the better. YAY!
Thank you God for answering our prayers so specifically! You are truly awesome! Please continue to guide us, esp. career-wise for Stephan. Oh and happy birthday dear Jesus!
