Week of November 4
Join Tom Lin, our president, as he prays for “a growing prayer movement seeking witnessing communities on every campus,” and for “provision of more workers for the harvest, as we recruit more campus staff.” You can read more prayers from Tom and other staff and students in our just-released 2018-2019 Annual Report, titled “Prayer is Our Foundation.”
The Carolinas Region is holding a conference for Asian American students in Durham, North Carolina, this Friday and Saturday. The latest Religious Landscape Study by Pew Research shows (among other things) that about 1/3 of Asian Americans identify as Christian, 1/3 identify with other religions, and 1/3 identify as religious nones. While Asian Americans make up the second largest ethnic group involved in InterVarsity, Sabrina Chan, the director of InterVarsity’s Asian American Ministries notes, “We are the most 'unreached' racial demographic they segmented.” Pray that God will guide Sabrina and her team in the coming months as they develop programs to reach Asian American students.
Native American students will gather in Phoenix, Arizona, this weekend for the annual Would Jesus Eat Frybread? conference (WJEF). Like most students, Christian Native students long for community. Pray that students will connect well with each other and with their Savior during WJEF.
