We need your prayers. Here are a few things we are always praying for:
That God would prepare the hearts of new residents to come with curiosity about Jesus
That the sense of community among residents would deepen and reflect the multicultural beauty of the gospel at work
That supporters who share our vision would partner with us
That as our resident alumni return to their home countries, they will glorify God in their vocations and relationships
That our leaders would have the energy, creativity, and wisdom to engage our residents and the international students on campus
