Personal Prayer Requests

I have a sinus infection that is causing the left side of my face to be very swollen. Please pray that I'll get better so I can enjoy Thanksgiving at home with my family!

Also - I'll be speaking at my home church this coming weekend to talk more about InterVarsity and my new role. Please pray for guidance as I prepare, and that my sharing will be glorifying to God.

UPDATE - Tuesday 11/24:  I went to a doctor today since my symptoms have not gotten any better after 4 days. It turns out I don't have a sinus infection. I have angioedema, which is like hives except the swelling occurs in a deeper layer of the skin. I'm taking antihistamines but it seems like the only thing I can do is wait for it to go away. Please pray for quick recovery, I am in a lot of discomfort!

Urbana 09 Handbook - done!

Praise God! The Urbana 09 Handbook has been sent to the printer as of 4pm on Friday. It was a huge project with many people involved. Thanks for your prayers during this busy season. I'm excited to see when thousands of copies will be in the hands of Urbana 09 participants next month!

Cross Training

This weekend I'll be volunteering as a small group leader at the InterVarsity's Wisconsin division fall conference. Cross Training gathers close to 600 students from all over Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The track I'm helping out with is called "On Campus, On Purpose" and is geared towards freshmen and sophomores. Throughout the weekend I'll be serving as a guide for a small group of students from UW-Madison's Asian American chapter as they learn about the lordship of Jesus Christ, how to do a daily quiet time, and how to share the gospel with others. Our goal is to help young students take seriously their call to impact their campus as followers of Jesus.

I'm excited to be working with students again for the weekend! Please pray that the students would engage with Jesus and invite him to work in their hearts and minds this weekend. Please pray that my leadership would be effective and that I'll connect quickly with each student in my care.
