Then and Now
I've had the privilege of being part of the Indy Campus Team since August 2009, back when there were four college students in the Triangle instead of the present 11. My life as an underway member of the People of Praise has been incredibly enriched over the last year and a half by the steady influx of brothers and sisters who have answered the Lord's call to come build a city here in the Triangle, and I am looking forward to meeting all the future team members the Lord is preparing.

I look at my time here in the Triangle as a God-given opportunity for training and growth, both academically and in my People of Praise life. Some highlights include:
- Listening to Tuesday night teachings on being the light of the world, living in the Spirit, Christ-centered friendship, how to have good conversations, consolations and desolations, and right relationships.
- Learning how to do meditations. Meditations have become an integral part of our spiritual growth, and the fruit from these exercises frequently serve as the starting blocks for stellar dinner conversations.
- Leading physical training runs along the White River in the dark of the morning and experiencing how -9 degree wind chills can really
- Learning to analyze and interpret H NMR (or proton Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) results in organic chemistry lab and then trying to convince my household that H NMR analysis is fun (still working on that...)
God is really up to something here in Indy, come check it out this spring.
