RUF: In the Middle of It!!!
By Jay Denton • Issue #14 • View online
Today is the second day of class and we are right in the middle of WELCOME WEEK on campus at BSU.
We want you to know that we are able to throw parties, buy directional signs, pens, chalk, pizza and handouts BECAUSE OF YOUR SUPPORT OF RUF AT BOISE STATE.
Here are a few ways to pray right now followed by some pictures of how God has already been at work as the students have come back. Finally there is an opportunity to pray for our finances and give as well!

How to Pray RIGHT NOW!
  1. First Large Group is Tonight! Every Tuesday night at 8pm we gather in the Student Union Building on campus at Boise State. Students help us by doing announcements, helping to lead singing, and praying. I teach from the Bible each week. This semester we are studying the letter to the Colossians. Pray that as we sing, pray, fellowship and teach that God would draw students close to him and that some would surrender to the call of Christ on their lives!
  2. Welcome Back Events - On Friday we are throwing a party at a local park. Monday we are playing Volleyball on Campus. Wednesday of next week we have an involvement fair. Thursday of next week we have a special freshmen outreach. We don’t do these events because we think that they are magical - we do them because it allows us to connect with individuals - students who are made in God’s image get to interact with our leaders and our staff. We get to tell them about RUF, about how we believe in Jesus and we get to welcome them into our community on campus. Would you pray for these events?
  3. For our Leaders - We have a group of 13 students on our leadership team. I’ve spent a lot of time with them since Friday and I am overwhelmed by how amazing they are. They have different majors, different gifting and different personalities. It is awesome to see how God is at work in them on campus already! Pray that they would see their identity in Jesus - not in their school work or in how “good” of a leader they can be for RUF. 
  4. For our Staff - Pray for us as we prepare to teach large and small groups. Pray as we sit with students 1-1 and talk about Jesus. Pray for us as we serve side by side on campus!
 Pray for our Staff! Alex, Caleb, and Jay.

Give to RUF!
Because of the faithful gifts of our financial supporters we can minster on campus at Boise State University. In the coming months we will be talking more about what are needs are and inviting you to give and help us recruit new partners. Would you be willing to pray right now for God to give us 50 new monthly donors this school year?
If you are interested in giving to our work here you can do so by visiting:
