Noah and I hung out at one of my favorite conferences (the annual Regional Staff Gathering)- it was great to be encouraged in my faith, reconnect with my staff friends, and return with Noah to the place where we first met a year ago.  

November Happenings (2022)

How Great is Our God

      In my last letter I asked you to pray for Wendy (name changed for privacy) and the Lord has been answering your prayers! A week after we first met Wendy, Alexis (one of our student leaders) and I decided to spend an hour out on campus to talk with students and trust God to open the door for spiritual conversations. I had been kicking myself for not reaching out to Wendy earlier to follow up with her, but fortunately God’s plans aren’t based on our forethought. As soon as we walked into the cafeteria, the first person Alexis and I saw was Wendy. Out of all the students on campus, Wendy was the one who “just happened” to be sitting right in front of us! Immediately two thoughts went through my head:

“God is so good”

"My ministry partners must be praying for her”.

She was delighted to see Alexis and I and get to talk more about what we had discussed in Bible study a week ago. Over the next hour (before we all headed over to Bible study together), we got to know her better, learn more about her past, and share the Gospel with her. She shared some of the things holding her back from following Jesus, but also said she wanted to keep learning and coming to Bible study. Thank you so much for praying for her, the Lord is definitely answering your prayers! Please continue to pray for her and for the Lord’s perfect timing in her coming to know Him.  

One of our senior student leaders, Abbey, shared her testimony at IUP Cru’s annual Friendsgiving (thank you Saving Grace Church members for providing the delicious food!)

Sending students onward is one of the hardest and best parts of my job: we prayed for our December graduates to go out into the world and make a difference for Christ.

In the words of senior student leader, Maya, through Cru she learned, “how to be on fire for God in situations where she may be the only light amongst darkness and unapologetically be a light for His people.”


Winter Conference is coming up! So far we have at least one student signed up from every campus! Please pray for God to make a way for students who are on the fence about going, and please pray for students to be encouraged in their faith and for community to grow and develop amongst students from the different campuses.
