It’s been three years now since Syndi and I went to Deep Creek. That night with her, just sitting and talk in her car, still remains one of the most amazing conversations of my life. I can in no way remember what was said, but only that it made an impression upon my soul.
Friday night’s youth service went really well, and we are having our first drama meeting on Wednesday night. These kids are amazing. I can’t believe God gave me this beautiful family so early after arriving to a new land.
Yesterday, Nicole and a girl named Patricia and I went up to my Grandparent’s house for lunch and to do some filming for a video project we have due. We had such a good time. My grandparents were great hosts.
Last night I went over to Mary Jo’s and April’s since they were having a get-together. I met some new people and we laughed the whole night.
The God that I love today is the same God who loved me and watched over me in my youth. Even then, he knew.
I talked with Josh and Jessica over the weekend. Josh was such an inspiration to me. He also seemed lonely. He misses me and I miss him. He said things are different at Lees-McRae. He said I was able to join all the people together and he can tell a difference now that I’m not there. I told him that he should make the effort to bring people together. We prayed and he admitted that perhaps it was him and not the others. He says he feels really insecure and he’s not sure the others want to be his friend.
I do miss Lees-McRae, but I know that is not where I supposed to be right now. I know without a doubt that is was where God wanted me for the days between August 28, 1994 and May 10, 1998.
And he has set these days here at Regent aside for me now.
