I’ve been traveling. The weekend before last, I was very fortunate to watch a long time acquaintance and partner in ministry get married. Awesome. Congratulations to Melissa Sepe Nguyen! She’s the director of Intervarsity at UCSB. She’s terribly gifted for ministry, and I count myself blessed to be a part of “The first day of the rest of her life.” While there, I was able to reconnect with some old friends from college, and make some new ones, too.
In Stanford news, we have been having regular summer Chi Alpha meetings. It’s been more of a discussion format, and the studies have been centered around prayer. Some sample questions just from last night’s meeting: “Is failure a part of God’s will?” “What if I just don’t feel like praising God?” “How can we know God’s will?”
And, everyone of these questions were answered, not all by me or Glen, but by the students. I am amazed at the amount of knowledge these students have about our Lord. One seemingly has committed the entire New Testament to memory, and another can speak right to the heart of every question. There is no doubt the hunger these students have for God. I see them and wonder and question my own hunger for Him who brings life.
