Please pray for God to transform hearts this coming week at another IV training event. I am serving at another Chapter Focus Week this time without my students. Pray God saves any non-Christians in camp and transforms the hearts of students and staff alike in big ways. Pray for strength and grace for IV and camp staff alike and for a safe week blessed by Our Father’s providence with closeness with Jesus through the power of His Holy Spirit.
Hey all. From April 27-May 3 LSSU and other college students will be encountering God at InterVarsity’s Cedar Campus in Michigan’s Upper peninsula. This event is a training event called Chapter Focus Week (CFW) and it is crucial to the growth of my students and their InterVaristy chapter.
At CFW students are trained in leading small group Bible studies, plan for the semester to come, get to hear God’s Word preached, get to appreciate God’s creation, and perhaps most importantly, are impacted by God. One student said that CFW was “life changing” for her. That is what we hope for. Students to have their lives changed by God and take action in their lives. Of the students that attended last year’s CFW 4 lead small groups and 1 other is on our newly formed leadership team. After attending CFW students took action to serve on their campus.
Please pray for:
LSSU students and I planning for the fall: That God guides us in the decisions we make and uses our plans to advace the Gospel in the fall and welcome new Christian students creating lasting change at LSSU.
Students attending other programs: That God will use what they learn to change their lives and the lives of students when they return to LSSU.
That non-Christian students attending the week are saved.
For strength and clear heads for students and staff.
For God’s discernment for staff and students hearts being open and prepared to be changed by God.
For God’s grace for logistics and for the camp staff that serve us. Pray God reall meets them and gives them peace this week.
For expositors to have strength, speak boldly, and have the Spirit work through them into the hearts of their audience
That God would minister to students through music worship and calls to commitement.
That staff, My supervisor Marty and I would be minstered to and met my God in big ways that we need during the week.
Behold, it was for my welfare that I had great bitterness; but in love you have delivered my life from the pit of destruction, for you have cast all my sins behind your back. (Isaiah 38:17 ESV)
Please pray for our evangelism event on Thursday the 18th. Please pray God saves students, lots of students participate in the event despite busyness, and the students that do participate speak boldly and comfortably.
Talk prep day for tomorrow’s large group meeting for IV. Please pray God brings me alive to Hebrews 2 and that God uses my talk to his glory and to transform and save lives tomorrow. Pray that I speak slowly and clearly and out of a heart of worship to God.
Pray God brings people there that do no know Him and that He calls them to salvation.
