Missionary of the Week
The InterVarsity chapter at UW-Whitewater has been growing! In early September, we launched a record number of small group Bible studies. We now have 16 student-led small group Bible studies meeting in residence halls across campus! In addition, we have three small groups reaching non-residence hall corners of campus. While our Asian American InterVarsity small group remains strong, we have launched a Black Campus Ministry small group for the first time! We also launched a small group for commuters for the first time since I was a student. Our vision is to reach even more corners of campus by launching more small group Bible studies. In the next few weeks, leaders will begin developing new students as apprentices. At the end of the month we will be attending our regional fall conference, called Cross Training, where students will receive training on how to live out their faith on campus. Would you please join us in praying for God-given vision to reach new places at UW-Whitewater?
Please pray for:
• New students to continue to connect to our small group
• Student leaders as they develop their small groups
• Students to grow in vision for reaching new corners of
This week we welcomed “home” Kris Driscoll, as she comes and shared during Mission Moments. Fulton was Kris’ sending church back in 1998, when she left her career as Food Service Director for Marriot Corp. in Stoughton and Janesville Schools, and spent 9 1⁄2 years in mission work in Honduras. In 2007, she returned to the U.S. (Pharr, TX, on the border with Mexico in Deep South Texas) to help care for her elderly parent’s needs. She was provided the opportunity to continue to serve as a missionary in the U.S. with the EFCA Hispanic Ministries with an expanded role to include helping administrate the Immigrant Mission and GATEWAY Theological Institute. She works from her home office via a virtual office and travels usually once a month to Minneapolis and/or other sites in the U.S. She also visits Honduras once a year to continue to support the ministries there.
