|Congratulations Reese and Julia!|
WORTH THE WAIT!
The Winston-Salem Fellows celebrated their first Fellows wedding over the weekend.
|Twenty-four hours after these two first met...|
|Two and a half years later!|
We were the butt of many of laugh as it was mentioned more than once that these two were kept apart by the no dating a fellow Fellow rule! - HA!
One of the reasons, I believe so strongly in that rule, by the way, is that it can lead to this - one of the most joyful, celebratory weddings I have ever witnessed.
Congratulations Reese and Julia! We love you and are so excited to see you guys finally hitched!

BACK TO IT!
|A Festive Round Table|
I couldn't imagine a better way to start the second semester with a Round Table with Bill and Myrtie Davis. What a great night!
|Bill Davis always insists on being the photographer!|
I asked Bill and Myrtie for some relationship advice. They talked about forgivness and having a sense of humor.
That modeled the latter multiple times during our evening with them. Thank you guys!
We finished early so we could watch the Alabama Clemson game (go Tigers!)
|Sure was bright|
Jay Helvey was our speaker this week. He has such a great story. Some of the notes I took had to do with the importance of building social capital and a portfolio of community connections. That is true wealth.
He also talked about following God's lead. Even though it didn't often lead where he expected it would lead - it always led to great blessings.
We left inspired and encouraged. Thank you Jay!
|A true Fellows welcome|
We had an awesome interview with Logan Russell, a senior from Davidson College.
Applications are a bit slow this year. I've been in contact with two females and a couple males, but as of today we only have one interview set.
HINT HINT PRAYER OPPORTUNITY!!!
specifically: Pray that we will be able to fill our class with 12 outstanding Fellows by the end of May.
|Hey college seniors! I'm not saying that it will lead to this - but what if it did...apply today!|
We are so thankful for our financial partners. Folks ask us "How are you able to do so much?" Well, one of the reasons is because of our generous donors that free the director up to focus on the work and not the fundraising.
