August 21, 1996 – Wednesday – 3:35 p.m.

I was on duty last night and at 10:00 p.m. we had a hall meeting.  It concluded after 30 minutes.  I was in Vince’s room when Brett ran up the stairs and said, “Jacob, come down here, I have two girls in the lobby who want to go to church.  They need directions for Sunday.”

I headed down the steps and there they were, two girls, one tanned and tiny with blonde hair, they other taller with freckles.  And the four of us spoke with each other.  But then a connection was made.  I asked her what kind of church she came from and she said Assemblies of God.


“You’ve heard of it?” she said.

“Yes, that’s me!”

And I saw her smile.

Her name is Cindy.  She is from Charlotte and she is majoring in Dance Education.  I talked to her for a few short minutes over the phone today as well.

When I first saw her, her tanned, tiny roommate stood out more, but now she has become the most beautiful girl on campus to me.
