Then our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with shouts of joy. Then it was said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them.” ~Psalm 126:2 BSB
Happy New Year to all of our Campus Life Friends –
We hope and pray as you start off 2024 that you are experiencing God’s blessing in your
life and His love in your heart. It was so wonderful to see how God worked in the lives of
students and adults through the ministries here at Campus Life in 2023. And now that we are
in 2024 we are excited to see how God will continue to work through this, His ministry.
Each new year we wonder, how will God use this ministry in the year to come? I think we got a little taste of this when we received the following phone message. Hi, my name is Brenda (not
real name) and I’m calling on behalf of Brian (not real name). He was one of the boys you met with in the juvenile detention center. He would like to continue Bible study now that he's out. Really
appreciate you going in there and getting in touch with him. It meant a lot to him and I'm really happy that he's decided to continue doing Bible study. Sounds exciting and encouraging doesn’t it? This is beginning to happen more regularly here at Campus Life. Connecting with kids when they get out of jail has always been difficult at best. But now they are contacting us to connect, get together, to do Bible study. That’s an awesome next step. An awesome door that is being opened. And an awesome ministry opportunity for the year ahead. Please pray that more of these doors are open, and more Gospel truth is shared - in love.
Just some other quick notes: First, tickets to the 14th annual Father Daughter Ball are now
SOLD OUT. It took less than three weeks to sell all 520 tickets for this one-night event in
February - WOW! Second, we handed out more than 350 Christmas gifts to people in assisted living facilities in December. So awesome seeing all the smiles. Third, you will be receiving your annual contribution report (if you are a financial supporter of the ministry) around the middle of January. If you have any questions about your report, please do not hesitate to give us a call. And Fourth, new women's Bible studies (6 sessions) start in January. Sign up NOW!
Thank you for partnering with us in the ministry as we share the Gospel, the Good News of Jesus Christ with the youth and families of Sheboygan County and beyond. A special thank you to those who helped us with our annual year-end Phoneless Phonathon appeal or with a special year-end gift. You are very needed and very much appreciated. Please pray for us regularly. Ask God how He might use you. There are plenty of places to plug-in and participate. We are working hard to make an eternal impact in this community. You are, or can be, a part of that. Thank you so much, and may God bless you.
Serving the kingdom - together,
