What I’ve been waiting for all summer has finally arrived. EC has started, and with the new year comes a new batch of students. Students that I will have the honor of doing life with for the next nine months! Coming into this new season as a second year student in EC has been such a cool experience. With many new faces this year, I realize there are multiple students that I only know on a first, and maybe last name basis. However, my first year in EC taught me what nine months of living together can do for a family. I can stand in faith knowing that by the end of this year, the bond and unity between each and every student will be so solid.

Psalm 133:1 Says “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity”!

Looking at this year with a simple mindset, we all have the pleasure to live together, united, running and chasing after one thing, God! I am aware that I have a very simple perspective on life, but it is so stinking cool to be here right now doing this with such amazing people, and I count it as such a huge blessing and an honor! I cant help but have high expectations on this year, and I am excited to see what God is going to do in and through us in EC.

One of my favorite things as a believer is knowing that there is no restraint nor limitation to what God can do. I feel as though He has been heavily putting the word “limitless” (without end, limit, or boundary) on the hearts of the leaders and students of this years class. There is so much passion, energy, and love for Jesus within the students this year! Living with that energy, and standing on Ephesians 3:20 which says that “God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask, think, or image” gets me incredibly pumped to see what these leaders, and world changers are able to accomplish this year through Him!

FROM DAY ONE...Only time will tell!
