Molyn packed her books, arranged the library
materials carefully on the table and caught up with
Sandra and Alex who were waiting outside the library.
The three walked to the Royan café and took
seats around a table towards the back. The twins talked
with Alex as if they had been friends for a decade.
“I like the way Pastor Tom preaches. I was also
impressed with him when he interviewed me”, Molyn
said but was bemused when she didn’t get a response
from Alex. “Or what do you think, Alex?”
Alex was jealous but admitted to himself that
things like this were bound to happen. After all, they
were friends and Molyn had every right to be plain and
sincere with her sister and her new found friend.
“Oh yeah! Tom is a great guy”, Alex said. “Since
we came to college as freshmen, I could tell that he
would become a spectacular preacher someday.”
Sandra had been listening to the conversation
with great interest. She wasn’t aware that she had been
staring at Alex until Molyn tapped her feet, under the
‘What is wrong with me? I can’t be getting
attracted to this guy already!’ Sandra said to herself,
upset at her behavior. She only hoped Alex hadn’t
caught her staring at him. And if he had, she hoped he
thought little of it.
“You girls go change. I’ll come to your dorm by
7:45 so we could go for bible study together”, Alex said
after their meal. The girls assented and walked to their
dorm alone, insisting that Alex get some rest himself.
In their room, Molyn was quick to tease Sandra
about Alex, and she in turn teased Molyn about Pastor
Tom. In no time, pillows and laughter filled the air.
The twins had been to two Sunday services but
had never been to weekly meetings. They were thrilled
at the number of students who had already turned up
fifteen minutes to the start of the meeting.
Alex led his new friends to the fifth row, right
of the altar, where he liked sitting and explained the
order of service to them.
They heard a thud and turned to look. It was
Tom Hacks, the student pastor, walking in.
Sandra turned to look at Molyn and couldn’t
suppress the grin that curved her lips. Moyln’s cheeks
were all red.
Alex too noticed Molyn’s tension and couldn’t
help marveling at the power men could have over
women, and vice versa.
Pastor Tom seemed to be walking towards
‘Oh no! I hope I don’t mess this up. Girl, get a
grip’, Molyn chided herself.
The student-pastor walked over to say hello to
his friend, Alex, and his female compnions.
“Alex, good evening. It has been a long day,
Alex nodded and shook his friend’s hand.
“May I meet your friends?” Tom asked
rhetorically, turning to face Sandra and then Molyn.
They made brief introductions and Tom
seemed impressed. “I’m Tom Hacks. I’ll be delighted if
you call me Tom. The pastor thing makes me feel older
than I am.”
Tom’s simplicity was already tugging at Molyn’s
“Nice meeting you both”, Tom eventually said.
“I have to greet a couple of people before the service
begins. Hope to see more of you both. Enjoy God’s
love with us tonight.”
With that, Tom excused himself, walked
towards Steve Mann, and asked him to start playing the
song, Sweet Jesus, how I love you, on the piano. He then
moved on to greet other folks.
Molyn was impressed with herself for being so
calm. It had been a while since she last felt this way
about a guy. While still reminiscing, Steve motioned
for all to rise and sing to God. He both played the
keyboard and sang. It was a remarkable time of
worship. Alex could see that the twins were impressed
with Steve, so he whispered to them. “He’s the best
student pianist in the South.” They were again yarndyed.
It was now time for the teaching. Tom Hacks
walked up to the lectern, placed his bible on it, and
wore his pair of glasses. Molyn could hardly believe he
was the same person she had just spoken with. He
looked so transformed and she couldn’t help noticing
that he looked all the more handsome. His very
presence held the attention of the congregation.
Molyn concluded that this fellow standing before her
was definitely born a pastor.
“We’re going to do a brief study of what Jesus
meant when He told us to be witnesses of Him to the
world”, Pastor Tom began. He opened several
scriptures to buttress his points.
“Jesus didn’t instruct us to preach on our
campus only. He asked us to reach out to the whole
world.” Tom said every word with so much power,
faith and love that even the hardest of hearts would be
As he concluded his sermon, he looked at all
the faces in the congregation and smiled.
“The Lord has instructed us to go on a mission
trip to Africa during Christmas. If God has touched
your heart and you want to be a part of this, please see
me after this meeting. I’ll be meeting on a regular basis
with everybody who volunteers, in preparation for this
He paused, looked at members of his
congregation, his eyes finally settling on Molyn, and
said, “I hope you’ll join me.”
