It’s already three weeks into the quarter? I seriously cannot fathom that. It feels like people just got back, and classes just began. But people are already talking about Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks, final exams, and other holiday-esque topics. Honestly, I can’t blame everyone for having winter on the brain; it’s been an average of 60 degrees and rainy for a good majority of the quarter. Sadly, I will admit how dangerously close I came to listening to Christmas music on a cold, chilly day last week.

Regardless of how fast this quarter is going by, I am so happy school is back in session. It’s wonderful to see familiar faces, as well as an abundance of new ones! I’ve enjoyed getting to know new people and becoming better friends with returning students.

A wonderful year for PUC is underway. The incoming students have a deep love for Jesus and a desire to spread His love to those around them. I can already see the bonds forming among the students, and with the new Campus Chaplain, Laffit Cortes, I feel that we are really going to go places spiritually. There are signs of revival at PUC! I look forward to seeing what great things this empowered student body is going to do for each other and the community alike.

We are gearing up this week for the first big spiritual event of the year: Fall Revival. The first meeting with Pastor Laffit was very powerful, and I think it spoke to a lot of people. They’ve even set up “prayer walls” around campus, where people can go and write their prayer requests and praises in chalk. I love how we are being encouraged as a school to be dependent on Christ. I am very excited for what this year is going to bring here at PUC.
