Spring is slow to come

We are awaiting Spring in north central Kansas.  Some trees have blossomed, but the weather has been cold and wet.  Most of us are yearning for some days in the 60’s and 70’s where we can enjoy the new season.   In one’s spiritual life one can become impatient with what God is doing.  The Scriptures speak a good deal about patience.  This virtue is one of the qualities that Paul states we should put on as part of the “new clothes” that, being united with Christ, we have.  Take some time to read Colossians 3 to hear Paul’s perspective on life.

Kansas State Rodeo

Join us for the Saturday rodeo at Kansas State Weber Arena.  We are meeting there at 6:30pm Saturday February 18th.  This rodeo features contestants from Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri.  It is a unique event where one can really get a flavor of the Midwest.  There will be bare back riding (on a horse), calf roping, barrel racing, and my favorite, bull riding.  The cost is $10 with a student body card.  See you there!

Welcome to the new semester!

Bridges International would like to welcome all new international students to Kansas State University for the spring semester 2017.  We know that it doesn’t feel like spring, but the weather will gradually warm up once we get to April!  To beat the winter cold, we invite you to two special events:  we have badminton competition on Saturday February 4th at 2pm at the KSU recreation center and then on Sunday February 5th at 4pm there is a Super Bowl party at 1905 Bluestem Terrace, Manhattan.

Our weekly event is the Conversation Cafe on Wednesdays at 7:00pm in room #227 in the KSU student union.  Come for games, English practice, music, friendship, and snacks.
