Please Pray!

Please pray for Lionel (not his real name) an Asian visiting graduate research student who is meeting with me weekly and reading the Bible for the first time. He wants to understand Christianity and desires to know the “purpose of life” as he asked me. Pray that the Holy Spirit would reveal the Good news of Jesus to him. I met Lionel through the Wallace Pres. weekly ESL class which we hope to connect our RUF students with as a service ministry outreach. Scores of international students come to the University of Maryland each year to do research as well as get under grand and advanced degrees. We know from research that most of these students never have the opportunity to visit an American home or enter into significant relationships with American students. Please pray that our RUF students will engage and begin friendships with the many internationals and visiting students who are on our campus, sharing the hope of Jesus with them and welcoming the stranger and alien as our Lord commands.
