Time flies when it’s 100+ degrees outside. Wait, that doesn’t seem right. It is sweltering outside and I praise God for the air conditioning I am fortunate to have at work and at home. I pray for those that are not so lucky in these temperatures. I thank God for your support and prayers that provide work conditions that allow coherent thought and creativity that do not come easily in less comfortable temperatures (you don’t want to be too close when I’m overheated and hungry!).
I thank God for you as you have supported SC students and alumni in serving God around the world. On our website can find some heart touching photos of the work God did in the lives of our students on a number of international mission trips this summer.
Resident Director (RD) training has started mid-July and the Resident Assistants arrive early August. All of our current RDs are SC alumni - do you know them? The whole campus is gearing up for the new school year. We have athlete orientation on Saturday August 11 and new student orientation on Saturday August 18. Pray for these students and their families as they begin this new journey with us.
Not only do we have new students joining our ranks, we have a number of new employees that we are praising God for as we begin a new year. You'll be able to read more about these wonderful people next month.
As the temperatures rise, I pray you will be refreshed by the Holy Spirit. And may your summer come to a end that glorifies God.
Together in Christ,
Amy Thompson '96, M.A.
Dir. of Alumni & Parent Relations
