We are headed to the mountains to take the students on a retreat this weekend, and would love it if you could take a minute to pray for us. We have 50+ students going and it is the most diverse (beliefs, struggles, stage of life, ethnicity, age...) group I have ever been apart in 10 years of doing college ministry. Even students from a closed middle east country who are not believers (the ones I mentioned last Monday) are going.
I am having a hard time putting my talk together for it since 1/2 of the students are not believers, others are very young believers who are just starting to walk with God and others want to missionaries. So I could really use your prayers. Please pray for the students who don't know Christ yet. That they would get to hear the gospel this weekend and the Holy Spirit would help them understand and choose Christ. Thank you!
In light of wanting these students to let Jesus' blood define them, wanting them to be wrapped up in living on purpose for His glory, because all is
For His Name's Sake...
