I started my first semester at UNM knowing that there was more to a relationship with God than what I had. One of the ministers at New Covenant Christian Church met me when I moved into the dorms and reached out to me even though I kept at a distance. God softened my heart through her kindness, and as I began to study the Bible I realized that I had not surrendered my entire heart to the Lord. I had been afraid to let go of certain friendships that I knew were keeping me away from God, but He showed me that His plan was greater than anything I could imagine for myself. In surrendering my life to The Lord, He called me into a church and the new friendships He has given me are proof that God is faithful to provide for those who love Him.
