November 2020 Ministry Update Letter
Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. ~Gal. 6:7-8
Dear Campus Life Friends,
Last week I got the following phone call from Brian (not his real name):
Brian: Hi Jim, wondering if you can help me out?
Me: Sure, what’s up?
Brian: Well, I kind of need to do some community service work.
Me: Why is that?
Brian: Well, I kind of messed up again, and it’s either that or some more jail time.
Consequences of Brian’s bad choices had caught up with him – again. In the past 10 years or so
that I’ve known Brian he has, time and time again, made bad choices. Some worse than others, in
and out of jail often. He says he’s following Jesus, but honestly, Brian is following Brian. God
gives us commandments and guidelines for life so we don’t have to deal with bad consequences,
but many times, like Brian, we like to go our own way and then we have to deal with the fallout.
Please pray for Brian. His life is a mess, and the only way out for him is to totally surrender to
God and follow “the path less traveled.”
Our goal at Campus Life has always been to see lives changed for the better, forever through
Christ. Through the work of our dedicated staff and volunteers, the prayers and donations of
our supporters, and by the grace of God, the ministry marches forward, even in the midst of a
pandemic. It all happens through the building of relationships, evangelism, and discipleship.
Yet, the evidence of changed lives is most apparent later when students become adults and bear
fruit through a solid Christian life. This leads to the establishment of Christian homes and
families, and involvement in Christian service in the local church, the business world, in
outreach ministry, etc. I am thankful to God for those who are “bearing fruit” now who were
involved in Campus Life 5, 10, or 20 years ago. Truly making a difference for the kingdom.
To God be the Glory - Great things He has done, and is doing, everyday through Campus Life.
Please pray without ceasing... for all of the students, adults, and staff that participate in Campus
Life ministries. We are on the front lines in this spiritual battle for the hearts, minds and souls
of today’s families. We need you and cannot do this without you. May God bless you, now and
