Intros and Insights

For the previous issue, I asked a few of the graduating seniors about their aspirations and goals for the future. For this issue I thought it would be good to find out some similar information about a few of the incoming freshmen. Here are the responses I received. If you see any of these people in your classes or in the hallways next year, be sure to welcome them to Jefferson!

Greatest fear about high school:
I'm afraid of my friends falling away from God.
Other information about yourself:
God's really blessed me with good listening skills and a lot of wisdom. So a lot of my friends come to me when they're having problems. I love people and so I'm eager to help them any way I can. I also have a heart for worship. I sing all the time - That's usually how you can tell what mood I'm in. Recently, God told me I needed to be more of a servant, so I'm working on that. I'm really excited to see God blow everyone's faces off as we impact our school with the fullness of His love and power.
