Yeah, the key word being "hopeful".
Instead I had one of my high school guys waiting at the church for me with this comment:
"Hey. I was coming over at 3 for the drop in, so I thought I'd just come now since I wasn't busy."
I think I may adopt a new student ministry motto.
"Students: they're not busy, so why should you be?"
Seriously though, I'm glad that my students feel like they can just stop by and hijack some of my time.
