IUSM Open House

This past week, at IUSM Open House, there were many memorable moments. This includes playing a game where we become to super heroes, sing praise songs for the first time this school year, and running around UC Davis as we compete in a scavenger hunt. And during Bible Study, John challenged us to free ourselves from the things we pursue and instead to seek Jesus and his gift that will truly fulfill us. If you missed the Open House, check out the pictures and videos below. See you next Friday!!

New Student Welcome Night

Wow! What a night! It was so great to meet so many new international students and exchange students during the welcome night. The welcome night started with a fun trivia game about UC Davis. Then John, the speaker for the night, gave a short talk about what is that most important thing to consider in life. After the talk, we played more games where there was a lot of excitement, laughter, and prizes! It was such a fun night. So many people did not want to leave. For those that couldn’t make it welcome night, come join us for our upcoming events!!

Short talk with an important message

The short talk is not a lecture; there is also time for discussion too

The short talk was very thought provoking

What is IUSM?

We are a group of international undergraduate UC Davis students. We meet together every week to learn about Christianity and what the Bible has to say about life as a college student. We also hang out and have dinner together, celebrate birthdays, have fun events on the weekends, and even go out of Davis and explore nearby cities, national parks, and different yummy restaurants =) You don’t have to be a Christian to join us. All are welcomed. They say life is a journey. We say, find a group of friends to go through it together. See you at IUSM!

Lake Tahoe Day Trip

This past Saturday, we also celebrated the end of Summer by going to a real viking castle! Vikingsholm in Lake Tahoe was a great place to hike down to, a very enjoyable lunch area with picnic tables, and a good excuse to get out of Davis. We laughed so much, learned a lot about each other, and best of all, had a nice leisurely hike in the beauty of God’s wonderful creation that is called Lake Tahoe. If you miss the trip don’t worry, here are some pictures for you to view until the next time we go!

Bible Study and Bowling

This past Friday was the last Bible Study for Summer Session 2. It was very eventful. We bid farewell to one of the many friends we met over the summer. We also celebrate the end of Summer Session 2 by going bowling after Bible Study. It was a very fun time of cheering for each other and experiencing strikes! Three times we almost got a turkey but it was just too elusive. Come join us next time!
