Dear CU Martus Cornerstone Partners and other friends of the ministry,

On a beautiful fall day like today, I am reminded of God’s tender mercies. They are new every morning. From a beautiful blue sky to coffee, to the blessings of my family…God shows His abundant mercy in myriad ways. Thank you for praying with and for CU Martus. The ministry faculty and leaders continue to serve, gather, and equip students. When students finally do return to campus, it will be the same…only different. A new dorm construction project is nearing completion near 40th Street, the grounds look pristine (probably due to very little traffic), and the shops along Walnut Street are getting a face-lift. While the students are not on campus, they are a mouse-click away, and I am so grateful for them and their ministry to their peers at Penn.

Our prayer requests:
  • In an age of liquid modernity, please pray that our students would hold fast to the true Truth (as Francis Schaeffer would say) of the Gospel. Pray that the students’ hearts would be good soil, to receive the scattered Word and bear much fruit at Penn, in their homes, and amongst their friends.
  • Continue to pray for our student Bible course leaders as they gather students from around the country and around the world. Finding times that work for BC’s via Zoom can be incredibly challenging. Pray that God would give them great patience and perseverance as they reach out to students, particularly Freshmen!
  • Pray for the healing of our land — not just from Covid, but also from political division, hopelessness, and the crippling allure of sin. Only God can heal our land.

Thank you for your continued prayers and encouragement. CU Martus truly could not do this ministry without prayer warriors around the country. Thank you and God bless you richly in His grace!
