Back in School

I love college. I love to go back and hang out in a college environment. I feel (or maybe 'act') much younger than my 38 years probably because I was in grad school until I was 32.

I have been in Columbia, SC at CIU (Columbia Int'l University) since Tuesday working with Avant's recruiting ministry. I love doing this because I love talking to college students. This week has been a great time hearing the passion of these kids. CIU is a great school with a genuine heart for the world outside of our borders. Anytime I was talking to a group of students, I could count on the fact that more than half of them were planning to go to the mission field. I even met a guy named Chris who knew a guy named Ricardo who is trying to get back to France. I ran into Chris later and he happened to be on the phone giving my contact info to Ricardo. I stopped and talked to Ricardo on the phone and found out that he really resonates with our vision for innovation and the arts in church in France. God never ceases to amaze me at how He networks His people for His purpose.

Tomorrow I will head back to Raleigh. Can't wait to see my Bride and my kids.
