They're Back...

All of the sudden my in-town commutes have doubled in length of time, it takes twice as long to go to HEB, and the population of our town has doubled in size. While many people in our town complain and are annoyed by the presence of the Texas State Students, I'm happy to be inconvenienced.

There is an energy and excitement to this place that the summer lacks. Last night we were on campus at a shin-dig that invites campus organizations to set-up a table. We met a lot of people, and it was fun to have new faces around. Our church attendance increased by 25-30%, and there were a lot of new faces there as well. I'm so grateful to be in a place where the ebb and flow and college life have such a big influence on our ministry. We're excited about this semester, and we'll be allotting more time for our in-town activities until Christmas.
