Today the air began to change.
For the last few months, the Trinity staff has rattled around the empty halls, mostly getting a lot of work done in the quiet and enjoying each other’s company. Faculty have been in and out, but mostly out as they should be—taking a respite and preparing for a new academic year all at the same time.
But today the air began to change. Bello and Emmanuel stopped by to say hello, with their prayer team t-shirts draped over their arms, sharing their contagious smiles, warm hugs, and enthusiasm. John, a newly arrived, non-traditional student from China, made the rounds with Dr. Dave Ellingson, getting acquainted with his new “family” away from home. The women’s soccer team showed its amazing resiliency amidst unexpected challenges by pulling off two exciting victories as a gritty, unselfish team.
The air is changing because students are returning. God has graced this place with amazing faculty and staff, but it’s the students He brings who are center stage. They bring the joy. We’re gladly the supporting cast. Thanks be to God.
Grace and peace,
Linda Kent ’81 & ‘13
