Koinonia Visiting August 26, 2005
In the evening I went to ABSK, or Asian Baptist Student Koinoia (Fellowship). Since it’s still a month before school starts, there was not a single freshman there, and everyone seemed a lot older than me. Visiting a fellowship would be easier with a friend, but God answered my prayers and I found Yang there.
In fact, he was one of the first people I ran into, but I didn’t notice him for the longest time while standing there next to him. Finally we saw each other’s face and realized we knew each other. It was a blessing that he was there to show me around. He was the same major I was a few years back, Computer Science and Engineering, but completed the five year major in three years. Now, just a couple years later, he has his PhD already.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to run to him crying every day when I come across impossible problems in my schoolwork.
The Bible study was good, but pretty unique. Not only were there no freshman, but the upperclassmen were gone on a camping trip as well, leaving middle year people. The speaker talked about Jesus and the bleeding woman, and how he was born with a condition that made it so he could relate to the story of the woman.
Afterwards, everyone met at Harper Middle School, where there was a sports night. The three activities were handball, basketball, and lightning (otherwise known as knockout?). When the three activites were over, everyone had free time until 11. I played a game of basketball, and then left. I’ll go to their afternoon sunday service this sunday as well.
Ben left today and began his life changing departure from here to boston. Goodbye buddy. May God bless you and your future.
