Happy Friday! Today's Friday Update contains a few mini-updates.
- Yesterday, Katie received a text message from a student who just suffered a very significant setback in something that she has poured her whole life into (sorry to be vague). Her parents received the first calls, as this student found out her news, but Katie was next on the list. At a last minute meeting last night, Katie got to hear this student pour her heart out, and was able to listen and encourage and pray for her. Our hearts ache for this student, but we sense that the Lord will use this event to draw her closer to Himself.
- Yesterday, I received a text message from one of our senior students. His request was a lighter one: "Do you have a tent we can borrow for camping this weekend?" It's fun to be able to be a "Dad" to these students as we serve and help them along.
Fall on Green Street
Then, all the leaves fall. We had a reprieve last year, only having to fill 60-70 large paper bags full of leaves. Previous years, the count was in the 90s! We'll keep you updated :)
Please pray that God would impact our students' lives tremendously at this conference. These conferences are significant times of momentum in the lives of our students. Pray that they would be challenged to trust God in life-altering ways.
Grace to you all! Thank you for standing with us for the Kingdom of God!
