In these last few weeks of Summer, pray for Fee and Kelly Kennedy, that they would be refreshed before entering into a busy Fall semester! Pray also for PhD students who take qualifying exams over the summer; their academic career and ability to remain in the country depends on them passing these exams.
In a recent newsletter, Fee shared about one PhD student from South Asia who has been encouraged by their small group exploring foundational teachings of the Bible. Learning about God as the Creator, she was able to see how her time spent doing research honors God and is a way for her to reflect him by exercising creativity. This student is one among many who is being served and encouraged by RUF-I’s work at SMU.
Pray for several students who are close to belief in Jesus. Ask that the Lord would grant grace and bring about genuine transformation in their hearts. Pray also for students who have recently graduated and moved on from SMU, that the Lord would connect them to churches and people who can minister to them in their new homes.
