Deb Carstensen, Ken and Margaret Tiillet, and Mike and Tracie Walker enjoyed a great fellowship last night (Wed. the 16th) with the Christian college kids out at FGCU. We provided pizza, salad and cookies (oh, and brownie bites! very popular!) to the group, which is led by Kerry Eastridge.
After eating and visiting, the games were afoot. Four groups converged to tell their stories - “Pizza, Pizza,” from the Land of Crust; “The Miscellaneous Mashups,” banding together to form a book club; the “Kayakers” (Long Live Queen Victoria!); and “Problem #4” - were they solving the problem or were they the problem? Only their boss knows for sure. At any rate, they will be with us always!
Several of the club’s members had been on a missions trip, so we had the privilege of seeing their slideshow and hearing their testimonies, which was awesome!
Announcements were made, among them New Hope’s invitation to Impact to join us for a dinner held in their honor on April 10th, at 5:30 and at New Hope Christian. (If you haven’t already, please sign up to let us know what delicious home made salad, casserole, side dish or dessert you would like to provide, and whether or not you can stay to fellowship with these great kids).
The highlight of the evening was the devotional talk given by Ken Tillet, who is very popular with the kids. That is no wonder, for he is a gifted speaker, Biblically solid, charming and eloquent.
The evening concluded with a distribution of the remaining food, along with hugs, laughs, and everyone’s desire to meet again soon.
