This Weekend's Events @ the Student Center!

Sunday's Global Cafe will feature Koby Miller! Upperclassmen may remember Koby as the beloved RD of Glide-Crawford dorm. She spent last year teaching at Kenya Highlands Bible College (here she is photographed with two other colleagues at KHBC). We're sure you'll enjoy her testimony of her experiences and what God taught her.
Hungry for Thanksgiving Dinner? We're servin' up homemade pumpkin pie, a great complement to a cup of Kenyan AA coffee!

Robyn Moore's visit

Last night Robyn Moore share a sweet testimony of God's faithfulness in leading her to a life of missionary service amongst kids in Kenya. Not only are national Kenyan kids close to her heart, but she also loves all the missionary kids that have been in and out of her life over her 25 years in Africa. Here is a photo of her with some of the ones who stuck around late last night!

Tomorrow's Global Cafe`... Family Nurse Practioner, Robyn Moore

I can't think of a person I know with a bigger heart for children than Robyn Moore. For years she worked as the head nurse of Tenwek's pediatric ward. In addition to those responsibilities, Robyn also "adopted" several parent-less children at Mosop school. She came back to the States to pursue a master's degree as a Family Nurse Practioner from Vanderbilt University. She just graduated and is preparing to go back to the kids she loves in Kenya. We're sure you'll enjoy meeting her and hearing her heart. Join us at 6PM tomorrow night! Faith is making chai!

There will be performances on Friday and Saturday of next week...

Fall Break!!!

Hey student friends! For your information, there will be NO Global Cafe` this weekend as it is FALL BREAK! Also, Nathan and I are getting away for the weekend to celebrate my grandparents' 60th Anniversary with my family so the center will be CLOSED Thursday evening through Sunday evening. We will re-open on Monday morning. Sorry to disappoint those of you staying on campus who might be looking for a place to hang out.
Enjoy your break!

The Goat Roast is over!

Marshall gettin' a head start on cooking the goat before the crowd arrived. We still couldn't keep up!
Our cabinet and volunteers fill up plates to get a bite to eat before everything begins.

We sold about 100!

Night #3 of box maze construction

Some serious planning has gone into creating the box maze... but sometimes you just need to take a break. Why not see how far you can race rolls of duct tape? I have to confess it wasn't my brightest moment to try to photograph image #2. I nearly lost my head getting that shot. cnw.

Preparing for the Goat Roast...

If you stop by the center this week you will see a sign that reads, "Pardon our dust, the upper level of the center is closed this week while we begin box maze construction for this weekend's Goat Roast/Fall Fest." Here's some images of the progress:
Now, you didn't think I would give the design away, did you?

Global Cafe -- 10/8/06

Sunday evening we were happy to have Don and Glenda Moon sharing at Global Cafe about ministries in Spanish-speaking portions of the world as well as what the Bible has to say about the issue of discipleship. Here's a few photos from the night:

'Family' Reunion

We've got quite the party goin' on over here tonight! There's over 20 WGM MKs from 7 countries on 4 different continents gathered at the student center this evening. We're pleased to host some of our WGM family that has traveled down from IWU for a weekend get together with us Asbury folks. There's been Chinese food, some DDR & Eye Toy Groove, "4 on a couch," and a trip to Starbucks ... and the weekend's not over yet!

Dinner @ WGM...

It's not every weekend that we have a group of guys over here at 3 on a Friday afternoon concocting yummy smells in the kitchen and asking me about the whereabouts of cake pans! As you can see, they rearranged some furniture and look to have a great time providing dinner for some lucky friends before heading out to artist series later this evening!

Spring Break 2007 -- Irapuato, Mexico

We are excited to announce that we will be taking a team to central Mexico (Irapuato) to work with Asbury alum & WGM missionary, Chrissy Greenwell. A few days ago I spoke with one of my WGM colleagues who led a team to Irapuato last spring and she remarked that it was one of the most fulfilling trips in which she had ever participated! She also said Chrissy kept them BUSY and engaged with nationals every day, all day long.

9/24/06 GC Re-cap

Sorry this is a bit late! I (Cydil) have been up in Indiana since Monday for meetings with the WGM Homeland staff in Marion, Indiana. For those of you who were not here, Dr. Renfroe (Kenya) provided Sunday's Global Cafe` program. We were pleased to have so many students here interested in learning about the HIV/AIDs program in which he is involved. Hopefully we'll have the MP3 posted sometime this weekend... and I won't go so long before my next posting. :-)

Collegian articles, Honduras, bacon grease, and GC plug

I FINALLY got my hands on a Collegian this afternoon and want to thank Ms. Carlisle for a great article! (For those of you who haven't seen it yet, there's an article about the WGM Student Center in the "Life" section of the school paper). She touched on pretty much everything significant and then some! We really appreciate the exposure and hope that the Collegian's readers find it helpful.

Another Collegian article worth mentioning is Shannon Elder's write-up about the Kingdom Business team's trip to Honduras through WGM in May. This was the Business Department's 2nd trip to Honduras under the leadership of Dr. Sandra Gray, department chair and also member of WGM's Board of Directors. If you're a business major (or minor) that's never been on one of these teams, please consider going next year! It's an exciting way to see how God can use your education and skills in making the difference in the lives of some people in need, all the while building up His church in Honduras.

On another vein, if you're reading this from outside of Wilmore, it's been raining a LOT here. One of my good friends, Jan, e-mailed me from DC to say she saw us (Central KY) on the weather channel. When the weather's yukky, the center is busier. If you are reading this from campus and decide to come over, you may detect a hint of bacon grease in the air. That's because we hosted the Kentucky Chapter of Men With Vision Friday night & Saturday morning. They may be a bunch of guys (interested in missions), but they know how to cook! Unfortunately, it's too humid for us to prop some doors open and air the place out. :-) Hopefully it won't linger too much longer.

Before I close, I want to encourage you to come to Global Cafe` tomorrow night! We will have a doctor to AIDS patients in Kenya sharing here. Dr. Philip Renfroe will surely leave you with something to think about! Hope to see you here Sunday at 6!
guten abend! cnw

IMPACT returns!

I was under the weather on Saturday morning and I didn't get to thank these lovely folks in person so I'm taking the opportunity here to thank them publicly for their service! As you may note in earlier postings, we had a crew of freshmen and TAG leaders come help us in the weather treating of the student center deck. Shortly after they left we got a hard rain which washed away a good bit of what they did! We were grateful for these guys who came over the weekend to make sure we got everything protected before the fall hits!

Watch a brief slideshow here... (Thanks, Elicia, for filling in as photographer!)

Zach Motts (Japan) @ G.C. (9/17/06)

If you missed last night, you missed a good Global Cafe`! Zach did an awesome job sharing about the needs in Japan, while sharing his own personal story of his call to invest his life there. I'll let you know when the audio is posted online. Meanwhile, there's a few picts below. Click here for the slideshow.

A little editorial explanation for those of you who weren't here for Zach's great bean demonstration. Typically performed for Sunday school kids, he graciously shared it with us too. Hey, we remember that kind of stuff, don't we? The light-colored beans represent those who claim to be Christians, the dark-colored beans represent those who do not claim Christianity. The pile on the left represents the U.S., the pile on the right represents Japan (see photo below).

Luke & Teresa at the coffee bar

The infamous piles of beans. Now to further underscore how few Christians live in Japan, consider that 2/3 of those "white beans" in the right-hand pile that claim the title "Christian" are actually cults...

a few of us praying for Zach at the end of his message...
