Every Monday morning the faculty and staff of Bridgeworld College gather for worship, Bible study and prayer. The time of prayer is not like other prayer meetings in which I’ve participated in the past. After the leader lists a prayer request, everyone begins to pray aloud. With Korean missionaries on staff and various Kenyan tribes represented, it is not uncommon to hear prayers offered simultaneously in three or four different languages: English, Korean, Swahili and Kikuyu. I recently realized that one of the reasons Jody and I were so warmly welcomed to the college was that this group has been praying for our family every Monday since January in anticipation of our family’s time in Kenya.
To help you help us by your prayers, here are some of our prayer requests at Bridgeworld College:
For the students of Bridgeworld College, for their families, for their physical, emotional and spiritual health, and for their financial needs.
For the faculty and staff of Bridgeworld College, for unity of purpose, for grace and strength in our daily work, and for the college’s faculty development program – the school hopes to have 10 full-time African lecturers within the next 6 years.
For the college’s extension programs where students can study toward a Diploma of Christian Ministry using Timothy Leadership Institute curriculum, and for the potential development of a third extension program in Mombasa.
And for a couple of special events coming up: the African Leadership Summit, an off-campus conference co-hosted with the Global Mission Church of Korea (August 10-12) and for the college’s graduation ceremony (August 19).
“You help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.” (2 Cor. 1:11)
