Andrew the Trojan
This is Andrew, our oldest nephew, and he recently received his acceptance letter to the University of Southern California. Oh yeahhhhh... he's excited about going to the same school that some of his football heros have recently attended (the likes of Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart). He's also looking forward to attending a school with a rich history, which will be a great plateau for him in his endeavor to becoming a pediatrician. Wow... "Dr. Compton, paging Dr. Compton." ;) That's got a nice ring to it. It'll be nice to have a doctor in the family.
Please remember to keep Andrew in your prayers. As we all know... college can be tough (in many ways) as well as Los Angeles (especially around USC) isn't the most forgiving of places.
Andrew, we are truly proud of the young man that you have become. It has been a true joy to watch you grow up and you have set a great example for the rest of our nieces and nephews to follow. We're excited about your future and know that God will continue to keep you and guide you in your life. Please be safe, study hard and remember what your priorities are while you're at USC:
4. And if you have any spare time... maybe a coffee at your local Starbucks with a nice christian girl (for an hour or less).
Also, don't forget your bible verse for college:
"Now faith is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1
We love you Drew. And you can always call us anytime you need to.
