Happy New Year!  

“If you, Lord, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand?  But there is forgiveness with You,
That You may be feared.”  Psalm 130:3, 4

I read the following post on Facebook by a former student:   

“In a season that celebrates resolutions and goal setting it’s hard not to get pulled into discontentment with how life is.  There is pressure to look better, feel better, act better, be better.                                                                                                                                                 

So this is my friendly reminder that, while goal setting for improvement can be fun and important, know that you are loved by God for who you are right now at this moment, not who you will become.”         Emily Santiago

 Aren’t you glad!!  God loves YOU! 

 Aren’t you glad!!  There is FORGIVENESS! 

Please pray with us for students to choose 1) to take a risk by actively growing their trust and faith in God by committing to a trip in May or July.  2) to clarify their vision for the future by committing to Higher Ground Gap Year.  Stand with us as we pray for those God wants to join us.  Thank You for your investment that helps to proclaim this “GOOD NEWS” to people who NEED TO HEAR!
