Greetings from Yale!
As I drove through town yesterday, there was a distinct increase in activity as students are moving back into their dorms and preparing to start classes next week. Our own ministry team and students are in the middle of Pre-retreat, where they are preparing their hearts and minds to welcome the incoming Frosh class with the love of Christ and invite them into our community. Please pray for their time together as they seek the Lord and plan events and strategies to welcome a new class of students.
Pray that the Spirit would grip them to love God whole-heartedly and to walk with bold faith. As they return to campus, a fast-paced season awaits. Along with tackling another semester at Yale, they’ll be navigating a robust line-up of events and following up with students they meet. Pray they would be fruitful as they intentionally seek out other students to offer friendship and the good news of the Kingdom.
Pray for our ministry team as they set up new Bible Courses and begin mentoring relationships with students, that the Lord would sustain them and they would be sensitive to the Spirit’s leading as they navigate conversations with new people.
Pray for the students of Yale at large - that in this season of transition and change, the Spirit would be at work in their hearts to ready them for an encounter with the Lord Jesus.
Thank you for your prayers on our behalf and for the students of Yale!
