This last week Calvary welcomed all incoming students for the 2019 school year.
There were many activities planned for the students to get to know one another and break that awkward feeling of being new. From an intense “Where’s Waldo” search to donuts and worship, students really found themselves moving into their new home with greater ease.
Here at the International Student Services we are excited to welcome two new international students. Megumi Grace Matsui and Moses Waswa are now officially Calvary Warriors!
Grace is a student from Japan and is studying Business Administration. One activity that she would say was her favorite from this last week was the Talent Show put on by some of our returning Calvary students. Many individuals got up on stage, but Grace thought that the skits were the best. She says that they were “so good and so fun”!
Grace looks forward to living in the Christian community here on campus. She is excited to make friends here who will help encourage her on her walk with Christ.
Moses is a student from Uganda and he is here studying Biblical Counseling. The week had a lot of activities packed into it, but Moses’ favorite one was the candle game. The goal of this game was to move from one end of the field to the other without letting your candle get blown out by the opposing team. Moses was an expert at dodging others and blowing out candles!
Moses is looking forward to “the new adventure… towards [his] goal of transforming and reaching out to the community”. With all of the activities planned Moses really liked how easy it was to begin to connect with everyone.
Both Grace and Moses are great additions to Calvary’s student body. We are really looking forward to how God will use them in their classrooms and in the lives of those they come in contact with this upcoming year.
