“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.  If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.”  – John 15:5-11

Dear Friends and Family of HCFA,

This will be brief, but only because we stand on the threshold of what is arguably the most important week or two in the academic year. It’s an exciting time. Freshmen are moving in as we speak for orientation activities and forty students are returning to campus early to load a bus for Ottauquechee Farm in Bridgewater, VT. Our primary purpose? To prepare to welcome the class of 2022 with open arms.

These few details will, no doubt, trigger some memories for some of our readers. Your ghosts still haunt the place in a very good way. Many of you well remember how invigorating and daunting is the task at hand!

Please join us in praying for the following:

  • The manifestation of God’s presence in all of our gatherings
  • HCFA’s Exec officers (Eunice, Cooper, Meg, & Elizabeth) have asked that we dwell on John 15-17 at retreat. Please pray that God’s love and wisdom mark all of our leaders’ efforts and for His favor to rest upon them
  • The class of 2022

We are so very grateful for your partnership in the gospel.

Much love in Christ,


Don Weiss
