The RUF here is pretty active! I had seen some chalkings on the ground (this is apparently the equivalent of a student activies bulletin board) about it and was planning to check it out, but one of the girls in my class who also goes to Redeemer invited me and made sure I knew where it was and when and everything, which was really nice because I would’ve procrastinated finding out the details and missed it. Anyway, she said that they usually had around 80 students or so, but there had to have been at least 120 people in the room last night. It was also 120 degrees, because the air conditioner was out, but everybody stuck it out and it was quite good. There’s something bonding about spending an hour next to someone in a room that’s boiling hot.
I guess 120 isn’t really that large a percentage of a school the size of Baylor, but everybody I met was very friendly and welcoming, and they had a bunch of other events throughout the week planned in addition to the weekly Wednesday night meeting…I was glad to find them. Told you my strategy of “let social situations come to me” works! Oh, the RUF minister is the guy who preached at Redeemer the first day I went. I’ve now also heard the senior pastor preach twice, and he’s very good as well.
