THE STORY:

Hi Friends and Family!

As many of you may know, I just finished my second year (onto junior year!) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. For the past two years, I have been involved in a campus ministry called InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and in my local church, Twin City Bible Church, as a youth group leader. God has done some really incredible things in my life so far. I have really grown in my faith, my understanding of both God and myself and I’ve started sharing my faith with others. I have also been involved in Christian community through planning events to grow community and by mentoring others.

This July I will be attending the InterVarsity Leadership Institute (IVLI), a month-long leadership development program in Cedarville, Michigan. At IVLI, I will grow as a leader and in my faith which I will use on campus, in church and in my life.

I would love it if you would consider partnering with me and my ministry at U of I, either financially or through prayer. I feel led to go to IVLI but need a little help getting there! The camp costs $1400 and I’m trying to raise $1200 to get there. If you would like to donate, you can either send me cash/check or donate online here on Crowdrise.

I would also really appreciate your prayers! I believe that prayer is very powerful and it’s a wonderful way to partner with God. My prayer requests for the month are that all the participants would really learn and be changed by God as well as get excited for the upcoming year. I would also really appreciate prayers for our ministry on campus. I live in Allen Hall and we meet a lot of freshman and new students living there. They are making some of their first independent choices about faith, and I can tell you first hand that it makes a HUGE difference to have upperclassman live in Allen and invest in each other. So my prayers are that God would be opening the hearts of Allenites and that Allen InterVarsity would really be loving their neighbors and investing in vital friendships that I have seen change lives. And finally, please pray for the TCBC youth ministry! I have loved getting to know the youth group and can’t wait to continue deepening relationships and investing in high schoolers’ lives.

If you have any questions or want to know more, please let me know!

With Love,

Kat
