August Adventures

For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.  -Psalm 100:5

I remember coming to this campus as a freshman. I remember feeling lost, afraid, and alone. I had no friends to sit with in the cafeteria, no one to talk about classes with, no one to call when I felt sad. All of that changed when I joined FOCUS. A student leader invited me to her core (small group), and to Friday Night Fellowship later that week. I went to both, and quickly found that I was wanted and loved and cared for.
