On my way to campus this morning I called my mom and admitted feeling really rusty. I was on my way to meet with an incoming freshman, (an international student from Singapore) and her mom. As I was driving I just froze up.... thinking... "I don't have a plan, I haven't thought about the questions I want to ask her, When's the last time I've met with a new student on campus? Is it seriously August? What if I don't know how to get to the building she wants to go to?"
And then 15 minutes later once we were sitting down and chatting, I forgot why I was ever nervous. I was quickly reminded of how much I love what we do. Ministering to students at the U of Illinois is such a blessing! I am grateful that God has called us on staff, and called us specifically to the U of I. I am grateful that a man at church came and found me to introduce me to this girl on Sunday. I am grateful that Noah was willing to work from home while Ellie napped so I could go to campus. I am expectantly grateful for all of the good work God is doing in and through us on campus.
