Dear Friends,

Thank you for continuing to remember us in prayer before the Lord Jesus Christ! I’m pleased to share that Fall Retreat (Oct 12-14) was the encouraging, faith-building experience that we had hoped it would be! We brought 28 students to the Incarnation Center to reconnect with God and with one another, and evangelist Chris White (Yale ’87) taught richly from God’s Word and his own life. Saturday night was particularly powerful as the Holy Spirit flooded the room during our time of worship, and God’s Spirit helped staff and students pray over and minister to one another. I had a strong impression right before the retreat that the young men and women in our ministry would begin to live more like “brothers and sisters” in Christ as a result of the weekend. Progress towards that end was evident in group times, play times, meal times, and we all agreed that God had graced us with much deeper sense of “openness” as guards had come down in response to His work in hearts.

Would you continue to pray for our students to guard and protect this “unity in Christ” which we tasted much more fully during retreat? Please ask the Lord to leverage that powerfully as a witness to the campus. While “freshmen outreach” is over, we’re still praying for evangelism and ministry opportunities to abound.

Please pray for:

  • The Mere Christianity book giveaway we’ll be doing in the next month. We will be distributing 400 copies of this classic & impactful book!
  • The Veritas Forum on Wednesday Nov 7th. The title will be: Can you hear me? Connecting on Campus in the Midst of Isolation. Christian Union is a co-sponsor of this event. Pray that Dr. Curt Thompson’s perspective as a Christian psychologist can inspire people to think, believe, and live differently — namely, pray for the gospel to go forth!
  • Pray for the seekers who are in our Bible Courses and those who are close friends of our students. One young man told me this week, “thank you so much for leading through the Hebrews study — I’m not quite a believer yet, but I can now see how the story of Jesus changes everything and opens up life in a totally new way.”

Glory & praise be to God! Come by & see us when you’re in the area, and thanks for petitioning God on our behalf.
