We’re wrapping up our first two weeks on campus and it’s been crazy! We’ve been busier than we ever have been before. It’s been pretty difficult trying to connect with returning students, meeting and building with new students, setting up life groups, and then all the craziness of administration. All that said, I’m encouraged. I don’t think I’ve ever been so encouraged about the direction and state of our ministry. 

Our students have been stepping up like never before and taking initiative and running. We’ve got an intense semester ahead of us and they’ve been rising to the occasion. We’ve connected with quite a few new students already and I’m excited to see where God takes all of us.

On top of that we’ve been praying about getting some sound equipment to meet with our vision to expand and become a little more professional in our bigger meetings (which will happen once a month). Not only did God provide, He provided in a bigger way than expected. Our campus ministry was given a VERY nice sound system that’s very portable and needs nothing additional. We literally have to buy nothing! So excited about that and to see God move in MORE than expected ways! That always makes me feel special when God goes beyond my expectations. He loves me THAT much!!!

And after all that, Jess and I will be celebrating our 1 year anniversary this weekend! Specifically monday. Can’t believe it’s already been a year!!! To celebrate we’ll be heading north into the Blue Ridge Mountains where we’ll be hangin’ with the Chen’s for a few days. Always great to hang with the Chens. They’re such an awesome couple. 

Anyway, it’s been a challenging but encouraging two weeks. More to come as we keep pressing forward…
