As we celebrate the Lord’s coming this Christmas, we have so much to be thankful for. In the last 3 months, many of you have responded to our request for financial partnership. Our goal was to have 20 new families/individuals … Continue reading
Right now, life is extremely full – but it is good. We’re traveling or running retreats on most weekends this fall, so please pray for stamina and energy for us during this season. In August and September, we got some … Continue reading
This summer was a busy one for our family. We were blessed to be able to move into a more spacious home, but with that comes the exhaustion of packing and unpacking and slowly getting settled. Beth’s migraines also took … Continue reading
First of all, thanks for your prayers for our health and travel. Our whole family spent 2 weeks at Rockbridge Alum Springs camp in May, and were blessed with mostly good health and good sleep (which is so important when … Continue reading
Julian is 10 months old and has developed into a super fast crawler. He is so much fun to play with now that he is mobile, and can say, “Mama, Dada, and “Bye-bye” – he also waves to and high-fives … Continue reading
We have really enjoyed getting to know our son since he was born. Julian is now an energetic 4-month-old who loves to smile, coo, and laugh. He has brought so much joy into our lives. The students were delighted to … Continue reading
As we walk into the last month of the school year we have a number of things on our plate. One is that Beth will be learning how to come back to work at 20 hrs/week while being a stay-at-home-mom. We know it can be done, but would appreciate your prayers for wisdom on both of our parts as we walk into this new stage of life.
We are also desperate to remember that just because we’ve selected next year’s leadership team, have started making plans for next year, and the school year is only a few weeks from over, we don’t need to (even subconsciously!) assume that God is done working this year! Please pray that we and our leaders will work with all diligence until the very end of the year.
Lastly, pray for us as we recruit students to come to Chapter Camp with us at the end of the year to spend a week relaxing and learning much from the Lord. I (Eric) will be working with new Small Group Leaders during week 1, teaching them how to lead Witnessing Communities who study God’s Word together back on campus, and in the Kingdom Living track week 2, teaching students what some of the major implications of the gospel are and how they can live them out by faith in Christ!
Prayer Requests & Praises Please pray for continued health, strength and rest for Beth and the baby in these last few months of pregnancy. Please ask the Lord to rejuvenate student leaders and strengthen new believers during the 5 weeks … Continue reading
One of my favorite things about doing campus ministry with InterVarsity is still our commitment to student leadership. Towards the middle of the semester our Vision Team realized that something just wasn’t right in our chapter. Where was the passion … Continue reading
One of the things that we are very excited about is what God has been doing among the Greeks at CNU (that is, Fraternity and Sorority students). Last year Lindsay Fauver was hired as the third InterVarsity staff at CNU-but … Continue reading
