Fall Registration at PIU Begins

2015-08-19 09.24.12Today is the first day of registration at PIU. Students have already begun arriving and several have moved into the dorm. DSC07285 (1280x1000)Yesterday was the first day of orientation for new students. I would appreciate your prayers for several new students who have not been able to get flights to Guam from their islands. Flights are full. We are praying that they will be able to get here before classes begin next week. I am enjoying having a lot of students around again. I had the chance to pray with the new students before the orientation began. In the pictures, PIU registrar Urte Scherer (left) is instructing the new students about the intricacies of the registration process.

We try to make sure everyone feels welcomed. Above the Student Development Team is arriving at the airport. Here we are waiting for the Tuesday flight to come up from Chuuk. The PIU banner always prompts conversation with people in the airport. Tuesday I met one of our alumni who is working with the FSM government office here on Guam. So we got a double blessing as we picked up the students.
