NCF at NSNAThank you for your prayers for the JCN and NCF outreach at the Lippincott booth April 6-10. I talked with hundreds of students (yes... hundreds!), distributed around 400 journals and gave away 400 flyers showcasing Journal of Christian Nursing and Nurses Christian Fellowship.

Kathy at NSNA 2011God was already working on the way to NSNA! My seatmate on the plane to Salt Lake City was a nursing student who was chosen to do a session at NSNA. What an honor for an undergraduate! She will talk about becoming the professional you want to be, including values and spirituality. She is a Christian and was excited to learn about NCF and JCN.

Pray this week for Kathy Schoonover-Shoffner, JCN editor, as she talks with nursing students and represents NCF and JCN April 6 – 10 at the 2011 National Student Nurses Association annual convention in Salt Lake City, UT. Ask God for conversations with students that will reflect his heart for healing and wholeness.
