“Going into college, I was super nervous that I wouldn’t be able to find friends who loved the Lord. My freshman year, I made my way to an RUF large group. Afterwards, everyone was standing around talking, and I figured I’d just head back up to my dorm. A quick hour later, I’d chatted with so many people, including our intern whose also named Savannah, had asked for my number. I felt on top of the world.
Now a junior in college, RUF has been a home to me. I’ve become friends with and met my future bridesmaids. It wouldn’t have happened without Savannah connecting with me so early on. It was incredible having someone there who not only genuinely cared about getting connected to the group, but also took time to meet with me one-on-one so she could really get to know me. She walked me through one of the roughest times of my life, and I’m so grateful for RUF and our intern because I wouldn’t be where I am without them”.
I get teary-eyed thinking about the impact that RUF interns like Savannah Shelby have made in lives like mine and Savannah Hankins. I am so so excited that I’ve been called to take on this same role at The University of Oklahoma. God is so good to give me friends like Savannah Hankins, and interns like Savannah Shelby.❤️
