There is nothing as valuable as a community of faith that contains your closest friends. I never intended to become such close friends with the other Disciple students, it just happened organically. It could be that we had similar ideologies, we both were far from home, or that we had a similar sense of humor. Maybe God just has a way of bringing friends together.

The second day of orientation week was very hectic. As I stood alone in the lunch line, I noticed the kid in front of me was wearing a shirt that said CYF on the back. I tapped him on the shoulder and mentioned the shirt. He smiled and let out one of his infectious laughs, starting in on the story of how he got the shirt at church camp. He invited me to sit with him and his friends at lunch, and I knew Alex Cooper and I would be good friends.

On the third day of orientation, there was a picnic lunch for new students. I got my meal and looked around for a friendly face to sit with when I spotted Alex and his roommate Isaac sitting in a group of students chatting effortlessly. I invited myself to sit with them, determined to be friends with them. After a pleasant lunch, Isaac invited me to go back to their room to hang out more.

Both Disciples, Alex and Isaac have been blessings in my life.
