We enjoyed a great break, and now it is time to re-engage with our work. Just after Christmas we host 10 winter conferences all around the USA for college students. Prior to these conferences we spent our Fall preparing media for these venues. I am hearing reports that our numbers are up at the conferences and that in particular an initiative to introduce students to operational ways in which they can serve in our mission has produced greater interest than previous years. Our video team, we call Simple Bulldog, produced a video that highlights these roles was used at the various conferences. It seems that it played a part in peaking students attention to these opportunities to serve. That is encouraging. Okay now back to re-entry chores which means going through a lot of email. Yikes!
