It's Spring Break!

It's Spring Break on the NGU campus this week and the Center for Cross-Cultural Engagement and Global Leadership would like to ask you to be praying for all NGU students as they travel to their many destinations and would also like to ask you to be praying for several NGU student mission teams that will be out among the nations during this time, sharing the love and message of Christ with different peoples.

Andy Stevens with Mass Communications will be leading a group of students who will be serving in Uruguay. Jody Jennings with the Baptist Student Union will be leading a team to Cuba, several students will be joining Locust Hill Baptist in ministry in Guatemala, and Dr. Allen McWhite with the Center for Cross-Cultural Engagement and Global Leadership will be leading a group of students to the Middle East.

In addition, Drs. Christina Eddy and Robert Knepp with the biology department are traveling with a group of nine biology students to Beattyville, Ky. The students will be shadowing a number of doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, and other medical professionals. They will also be staying at the Kentucky Mountain Mission & Youth Haven Bible Camp where we they will be helping with cleaning and preparing the camp for young people to attend this summer.

Also, Brian Spearman with Marietta First Baptist Church will be traveling with some of the NGU coaching staff and a group of football players to serve in New Orleans, La. with the Jesus Project. and many more students that are going out that the school is not aware of.

One special request for the team going to the Middle East is the Air Traffic Controllers in France have been on strike since Monday and are planning on remaining on strike through the end of the week. The team will be flying through Paris before arriving at their final destination. So far, Charles De Gaulle Airport (the airport the team is flying into) has not been severely impacted by the strike. The major delays and cancellations have been at smaller airports in France. However, the team would still appreciate your prayers about this situation.

"Ask God to be gracious to them in allowing us to reach our final destination on time so that we can 'hit the ground running' on our target date," said McWhite. "Pray for the safety and health of all of our team members and, most of all, pray that we will be God’s instruments as we seek to be His light in places of great spiritual darkness."
