Students gathered as a community for the last night at Farwell in community friendship. Joy has been a common sight found at LSM and at the very last moment before goodbyes on Sunday morning, we see student connections stronger than they ever have been. Students chowed down at their pizza party and rolled over laughing to the documentary/reality tv show put together by Michael McKenzie and Grace Lindmark. Then students finished the night with a showing of the Disney classic Hercules.
This summer has been nothing short of incredible. The students raised each other up with every concert and recital, screamed together as they plunged down slides and coasters at Valleyfair, sang together at Morning and Evening Prayer, threw water balloons at rec time, practiced with their instructors' guidance, and had many a soft serve cone at the Union cafeteria. In those moments, there was laughter, bonding, and celebration of friendship growing on a daily, almost hourly, basis. We look to our Lord in gratitude for having blessed us with the finest students from all over the United States.
Many thanks to Luther College for their 8 previous years of hosting and collaboration. We are grateful for all the hard work of Luther College faculty and staff and it is very bittersweet to be heading to Valparaiso University n
lors, interns, donors, board members, and all other hands whose hard work has made this summer's LSM such a success. We hope to see you all at Valparaiso University next year!
