Let me say just a little about myself before talking about Chi Alpha. I am an international student from Hong Kong and I just graduated in spring 2010. When I first stepped into the Chi Alpha house for some free food two years ago, I saw the word “family” – formed by seven wooden letters – on the wall. At first, I thought this was a bold claim at best, because I hardly felt a Christian fellowship could be like a family. “It is just another group of nice fellows,” was my initial thought. But it turned out I was wrong. After hanging out with several of my friends often enough, I established a mutual bond with them. I have enjoyed hanging out around there since then, having fellowship with my buddies, and lifting each other up. I found a place that I belong to.
Now Chi Alpha is not only a family to me, but also a huge blessing from God that I will always cherish. I can say that it is through Chi Alpha and the people in Chi Alpha I am convinced that God is real and God does love me immensely. This is more important than anything else as it becomes my purpose to live on. I am sure it will be a huge blessing to anyone who hangs out there for food or chill-lax time, and I am even more convinced that it helps Christians grow, further shaping them into a Christ Ambassador.
