“The operation of the might of His strength, which He caused to operate in Christ in raising Him from the dead and seating Him at His right hand in the heavenlies, far above all rule and authority and power and lordship and every name that is named not only in this age but also in that which is to come; and He subjected all things under His feet and gave Him to be Head over all things to the church, which is His Body, the fullness of the One who fills all in all.” Eph. 1:19b-23
Let us apply these verses both to pray for the coming election and to pray for the gospel.

CSU Channel Islands

We have Bible studies Thursday nights. Recent attendance has been 11-13 students and 5-6 community saints. This is from the Lord and we rejoice (last spring one student attended regularly). We also have 82 names on our contact list. Last Saturday we had a hike/BBQ/meeting with CSUCI and CSUN students; more than 40 students, young adults and serving ones attended this event.
We have been able to form an exploratory student club (CSUCI Christian Students); this has no faculty sponsor still enjoys the privileges of reserving rooms and passing out flyers.
Please pray for:

  1. follow-up with new student contacts;
  2. remaining fruits (core members) who would regularly attend the Thursday Bible study and/or the Saturday night college/young adult group;
  3. a faculty member willing to sponsor our club so that it can be granted official status.
