Berean Alumni in the World

May 2018
Friends and family,

End of the year
It is hard to believe that we have come to the end of the school year and the end of my first year on staff in Auburn! Our students are currently finishing up with finals, and we are in the process of wrapping things up on campus. When I last wrote, we had just returned from our spring break trip. Since the trip, we have seen great momentum in our ministry. We are excited as we see a stronger community forming and our current students welcoming and bringing in new ones! One of the highlights of this year for me has been my weekly, one on one meetings with Grace (sophomore) and Katelyn (freshman). It really has been such a joy to spend time reading the Bible and praying with these girls each week!

Summer plans
While we are wrapping up things on campus, we are also preparing for the summer. This summer I will be part of the staff team at the Navigators’ Summer Training Program in Pigeon Forge, TN! I spent my summer at this program as a student in 2016, and I am excited to be returning as staff this summer! My main role will be to help with food and to meet one on one with two or three of the female team leaders over the course of the summer. I will be in Pigeon Forge May 17-July 27 and will report back to Auburn’s campus on August 10!  We also have four students (three freshmen and one junior) who will be at the program this summer!

One of the verses that Grace and I have been memorizing together is Galatians 2:20, “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”  This past Sunday, our staff team, along with fifteen of our other students gathered together to celebrate and rejoice with Natalie, one of our freshman girls, as she publicly proclaimed the truth of that verse in her own life through baptism!

Thank you for your prayers and support over the course of this year!

In Christ,

Meet Grace! She has just finished her sophomore year and works for Eagle Eye, the TV station on campus. She will be headed to Madrid this summer to study abroad!
One of our freshmen girls, Natalie (in the middle next to me), who I mentioned in my last newsletter, got baptized this past Sunday! Many of our students came out to celebrate and rejoice with her!
