Please pray for the Mission teams from ETSU BCM, Walters State BCM, LMU BCM, and Austin Peay BCM in January. Austin Peay is going to Texas and Mexico to work in an orphanage and a local church. The ETSU,Walters State,and LMU BCMs will be going to Guatemala to provide school supplies, clothing, and food to people in remote villages. Along with safe travel, pray that the students will have opportunities to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with those they are seeking to help. Pray that the people’s hearts will be open to the Gospel.
A New Year’s Blessing
May God make your year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you when people and their causes need you most, and by making you anxious to be there to help.
