Getting Ready for a New School Year...

1920-Campus-Center-01 2It's hard to believe that summer is nearly over! Our InterVarsity staff team is busily wrapping up summer responsibilities and planning for the coming academic year. Here's what they have been up to:
  • Ryan (Longview Community College) is leading a series of three planning and training meetings for his student leaders as they prepare for the fall. Most of his leadership team is new this year, so these gatherings are critical to launching the year well!
  • Jerusha (KU International Student Ministry) has already led two major events - a city tour and a furniture giveaway for international students. These hospitality and service events are essential to connecting international students with American Christians in our ministry!
  • Dave (KC Art Institute) is getting ready for our first-ever New Student Outreach at the Art Institute! He's pulling together various creative resources for engaging arts students in spiritual conversations.
And our whole 10-person staff team will be gathering Aug 7-9 for our annual back-to-school retreat! During that time, we will study Scripture, pray together, plan for the year, and vision for what God wants to do on our campuses. Would you take a minute to pray for our team as we gather this week? We would love to hear clearly from the Holy Spirit during this retreat!


...And a New School Year at Home

firstdayofschoolBelieve it or not, we've already started school at home! When the beginning of July hit, our kids found the weather to be much too hot outside to do anything, so they requested starting school back up! 


This year, Josiah is in 2nd grade, and Hannah is in Kindergarten. Already this school year, they have made Roman battle standards and hosted their friends over for an art class. It should be a fun year at Emmanuel Academy!



Kansas Area Prayer Requests

1. Praise and thanks to God for a great summer of family and ministry!


2. Pray for our staff team during our retreat August 7-9. Pray that we would hear the Lord speak clearly to us as we plan for the new school year.


3. Pray for Martha as she homeschools Hannah and Josiah, for great learning and laughter.
