The dust clears

It’s been over a month since my last post. It’s hard to believe how fast a month can fly by, but when you’re talking about August (the month student return to DC) I shouldn’t be surprised. Here are a few of the things that went down this month:

  • 14th & 15th – Pre-semester leaders’ retreat
  • 16th & 17th – 2 days of freshmen move-in
  • 17th – Handing out 200 servings of ice cream in under an hour
  • 18th-22nd – Every day @ the Chi Alpha table
  • 18th – Night time lawn games
  • 19th – Participating in chaplaincy welcome
  • 20th – Participating in student government welcome
  • 21st – Returning student worship service & campus-wide game of capture the flag
  • 22nd – Enjoying the Olympic gold medal soccer game with almost 100 new friends
  • 23rd – Kayaking on the Potomac river
  • 24th – Lead worship @ supporting church
  • 28th – 1st Thursday Night Worship of the Year
  • 29th – Riddle Quest – our competitive tour of the National Mall
  • 30th – Chi Alpha @ the National Game
  • 31st – Student leaders’ meeting!

Whew! Eighteen days and sixteen events–no wonder I didn’t have time to write. How did it go? Well, we’re off to a great start! We’ve seen some of the best participation in all of our opening week events and are making great connection with new students. Thanks for your prayers and please keep them coming as students make decisions how to plug in.
