Brothers and sisters in Christ,

Though it seems like it just began, the semester is coming to an end as we approach Thanksgiving break which is followed soon by winter break. In this last month, God has continued to move in amazing ways on Cornell’s campus, and I am sure that He will continue to do so as we approach the end of the year. We hosted a second day of our book giveaway and received great responses from students. We have had two students come to regular CU events on campus due to that outreach. We have also seen a couple of new believers become more involved in the community and seek discipleship. Along with these wonderful events, we had a week of fasting which has been a great time of spiritual growth for the students. There are some important items to be in prayer for in the future here at Cornell:

  • The leaders for our teams next year are now in place. Pray that God would equip those who are in these positions to advance his kingdom.
  • We are currently finishing our week of fasting. Pray that these students involved would begin to engage in the spiritual discipline of fasting on a more regular basis, both through Christian Union and beyond.
  • The last few weeks of the semester are always stressful for students. Be in prayer for their mental and spiritual well-being as they prepare for final exams.
  • We have been discussing several exciting outreach opportunities for next semester. Pray that they are successful in furthering the message of the gospel on campus.

At this time of year, I should also mention that we do depend on the generosity of many supporters to make this ministry possible. The resources provided by alumni, parents, and friends made it possible to run Bible courses for our students this semester; to hold off-campus conferences, where students step away from campus life to grow closer to God and deepen their relationships with one another; to engage in creative Gospel outreach on campus and bring engaging speakers. And, of course, to meet with students one-on-one, to counsel and encourage them toward new faith in Christ or to deeper maturity in Him. Would you prayerfully consider making a special gift by December 31 to support current students as they hear the Gospel and grow in faith?
