Tyler and I are now (almost) all settled into our apartment. So far, we are loving it here, although it is taking some adjusting. There are many differences from our Florida lifestyle. One of the first noticeable differences was the road. The rules of the road are different here, intersections look a little more messy (less defined, more lights, more signs), and it's like you can't turn left anywhere! We are already missing grocery shopping at Publix. But on the bright side, there is a Hobby Lobby within 10 minutes from our place. Needless to say, I should be happy =)
We were welcomed to Jersey by snow! It was simply beautiful. I was like a kid on Christmas morning! I just couldn't stop staring out the window!
We have thus far attended our first Time Out (weekly Athletes in Action meeting) on campus, met several student athletes, and spent quality time with our new AIA directors. It's been a fun first few days! Tomorrow, we are looking forward to the football game, Bible studies, and our first NJ diner experience. As we continue to step into our new roles as full time Athletes in Action staff at Rutgers, we are eager and hopeful that God will use us in mighty ways to bring people into relationship with Him!
All in all, God prepared our hearts well for this and we are so thrilled to be on this adventure together with Him and each other!
