Resonate Global Mission – Huyser – Prayer Letter – September – October 2019
Huyser said that we live in a new world in which people we thought we would meet on the mission field have come to live next door to us.
“The joining of Home Missions and World Missions is not first of all a structural change,” he said. “It’s about facing the challenge and also the opportunities of this new world.”…read more…
CFS-Campus Chapel – Fall 2019 Inklings
For seven weeks this summer the Chapel community reflected on prayer, both in Sunday worship and a weekly study, guided in part by Anne Lamott’s book Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers. This is one community member’s reflection on her participation in the series.

And since there were a few days between both the classes we were teaching in Arad, Romania, we booked a three-day-vacation in Croatia in between. Yet, there was so much rain we had to drive to Italy to enjoy some warm rays! Since we arrived home, the rain has not ceased to pour down and we’ve barely seen the sun that usually shows its face daily, even in the rainy season.
