May and June are the months of graduations. Beyond those you received invitations to, there was a historic graduation you played a role in but did not attend. This graduation, among many others, is a sign of God’s sovereignty and a product of your investments in Global Scholars.
This week, on Thursday, May 3rd, throughout the United States, believers will gather in schools, offices, churches and homes to pray together. We are thankful for the freedom to meet in this way, for we remember that our brothers and sisters in other countries cannot gather publicly. Please pray with us as we serve God for the advancement of His kingdom.
If you were to sit down with a few of our Global Scholars professors, what would they share? In addition to stories about their families and backgrounds, they would probably share about a sincere desire to see their students, colleagues, universities, and nations redeemed and renewed by the gospel.
“How can Christian students meet one another and non-Christian students experience the love of Christian community in this closed Islamic country?” This is the question “Paula” and her husband have been asking since she began teaching at the nation’s leading university five years ago.
Rebecca is from Maiduguri, Nigeria—the home of Boko Haram, which has killed tens of thousands and displaced over 2.3 million others since 2002. Rebecca experienced much violence herself growing up there. She grew up in a largely Muslim family, but came to faith in Christ and decided to study theology. One of her professors was Wendy, a Global Scholar.
The 2016-2017 academic year was a banner year for Global Scholars! Through you, God has done so much to grow our ministry.
Our annual program evaluation and financial audit are complete and all the “numbers are in.” I’m pleased to announce the 2016-17 Global Scholars Annual Report is now available! You may view it online here.
What do Ahmad and Vahreed have in common? They both have Kyle, a Global Scholars professor, as a colleague who is having a redemptive influence in their lives.
Kyle is not alone. Every Global Scholars professor has non-believing colleagues who need the Lord, and in some cases believing colleagues who need encouragement from a peer to press on to maturity in Christ.
