"I love teaching nursing students that one of our greatest ministries is simply being present with others who need to know they are not alone," says Renee Lick, NCF Student Ministry Director. "NCF students around the country are learning that simply being present with another person is a reminder of God's abiding presence in times of illness, grief or difficulty."
Last week Renee traveled to south Florida to lead a workshop for area students and nurses on the Biblical principles of spiritual care and how to assess spiritual needs and respond with appropriate interventions. One attendee said the training session "re-empowered me to listen to the Spirit." A student reported, "This has renewed my strength and has given me the B12 shot to complete the program."
Bethany is a nursing student who is starting a new NCF chapter at Florida State University in Tallahassee. They just had their first Bible study and a potluck dinner that attracted 20 students who heard the gospel message and learned about opportunities to serve overseas. Praise God for Bethany's boldness in sharing her faith with her friends.
Pray for more NCF students and faculty who are excited about being part of God's mission at the University of South Florida, Florida Gulf Coast University, Edison State College and Florida State University. God's Spirit is moving at nursing schools in Florida!
