Dear CU Martus Cornerstone Partners and friends of the ministry,

Ephesians 6:11
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

The theme at Christian Union Martus for this spring semester is Christian unity and perseverance. A personal theme has been summed up in a word: fight. Fight for unity, for hope, for joy, for the proclamation of the gospel, for that which is good and beautiful and true. Fight for each other. Mindful that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the enemy of our souls, we utilize the grace that God provides. Students are tentatively returning to campus. Freshmen, who have spent a semester attending Penn from their homes, are moving into the Quad. The commencement of the semester still comes softly, with many restrictions in place and many students deciding to study from home. But there is hope that a breeze will blow into the upper room and bring God’s reviving Spirit to Penn’s campus. To that end, please join us in praying:

Please pray:

  • For freshmen connections to be made. In some ways, it is like a spring freshmen campaign. Pray that relationships will be established in the coming weeks as the students begin life again on campus.
  • For our first Philia, where we will be welcoming Dr. Karen Swallow Prior, Professor of English and Christianity and Culture at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
  • For the re-commencement of our Bible courses. They, as with all Penn classes, will be virtual. Pray for perseverance throughout the semester, that students would hold fast to the Word of God and abide in Christ.
  • For continued financial support from new and old donors alike, that we would continue to minister at Penn for the sake of God’s glory and His Kingdom.

Thank you and God bless you!
