College Life Begins

On Tuesday, Morgan's college career commenced with her officially signing in and receiving her dorm room assignment.  Morgan will be living most of the next ten months in Sisk hall room 213.  Once we had the info, it was time to get unpacked and moved in.  After that, it was off to Wal-Mart for all the last minute stuff she needed for the room. 

When we were in Wal-Mart, it was as if the entire store was on campus as there were dozens of families from the college shopping just like us to buy the last minute items before classes begin.  While shopping, we were surprised to run in to a family we knew from the church I worked at 14 years ago in Long Beach.  Mario who was in Morgan's K4 class was shopping with his dad as he too will be a freshman at W.C.B.C. this year.  

Each year at W.C.B.C., the school year is commenced with revival services.  As in previous years, Pastor R.B. Ouelette from Michigan started the year off with a great message tonight about Jonah and how he had run away from God's calling on his life.  He challenged the students and the many parents who were present to follow the Lord's leading in our lives.

When the service was over, we left Morgan to spend her first night in the dorm.  We are planning to head back to Yuba City on Tuesday but will not be able to leave Lancaster until Morgan finishes the registration process in the afternoon.  With a six or seven hour drive ahead of us, we will be arriving late into the night.  I would appreciate your prayers for me that the Lord will help me to stay alert and that we will have a safe trip home. 

Welcome to College!

Now where should I put this Rachel?
Nothing like running in to a classmate from 14 years ago.
