Pray for the Jao’s: Almost 18 million students are returning to campus in August! It’s an enormous mission field, and the first weeks of school are a critical time to connect find friends and Christian fellowship. Pray for us as we seek to reach out to every corner of every campus with the Gospel. Please pray as I participate in these meetings: InterVarsity Press Consultation (August 15-17) InterVarsity Executive Leadership Team Meetings in Delaware (August 19-22), University of Illinois-Urbana/Champaign large group speaker (August 26), and InterVarsity Day of Prayer in Madison, WI (August 28).Thank you for praying for my family’s move to Illinois. The move went smoothly, and we’re still unpacking. We’d appreciate prayers as my daughters (Madeleine (9) and Kirsten (7)) adjust to the community. It’s quite different than Manhattan!

Pray for ..Continual trust in the Lord so that we might have strength for the move; God to open healthy missional opportunities; A good fit with the new schools, students and teachers and a spot for Theo who is on the waiting list; Each member of our family to adapt and thrive in a new context for God’s mission in France; Persistent prayer every Sunday.
