hich of these experiences are true of CIU alumni –RIGHT NOW?
Struggling with depression — and washospitalized for treatment
Fighting cancer — weary from over a year of chemo, surgeries and radiation
Launching a new church
Closing a declining church
Leaving for the mission field
Waiting and working to raise supportfor more than two years
Buried a parent
Celebrated with parents on their50
Rejoicing at their child’s wedding
Grieving a “prodigal”child who ismaking choices that break the heart
All of these stories and many more come to our AlumniMinistries team. We are praying for each request,and con-fident God's powerful love,grace and truth are a very realrefuge. We also pray that each alumnus will have at leastthree people he or she can call at 3 a.m.with ANY need,knowing a caring response will follow. We’re here to listenand care,as well as connect you to support and encourage-ment. We rejoice with those who rejoice and weep withthose who weep — one day at a time.
