A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness."
Colossians 2:6-7 NIV

I hope that you were able to enjoy Thanksgiving with those close to your heart as well as sample a piece of pumpkin pie! I have found it is always beneficial to take pause and reflect on all things good in your life. Sometimes this is desperately needed as we get caught up in the little things that go wrong on a daily basis. One of the most enjoyable aspects of working within a college community is that each year has a very different feel to it with new people always coming and going. I am very thankful for the opportunity to meet so many alumni and for the great things happening here at Trinity.

Our best to you as you and your family as you begin the frenzied fun of the holiday season!

Blessings,

Travis Bandstra '06
Director of Alumni Relations
