Your enthusiasm continues to permeate the campus. As you transition to the second step on the ladder, remember – But they that wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength (Isa. 40:31).


Soon it will be your time to shine. Meanwhile, stand ready to take the mantle – Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good (Psa. 34:8).


It's the beginning of great things to come. At times, it may seem difficult to leave the known for the unknown. Know that – The Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you (Deut. 31:8).
