Spring 2017 Praise and Prayer

Thank you for your support of God’s work among nurses, students and nurse educators! Your partnership in the gospel is producing an abundant harvest of changed lives.

This is my first year as NCF Director and I’m thrilled to see growth in student ministry for 2016-17! We witnessed a 14% increase in the total number of students (1,862) who are meeting Jesus and learning how to follow him in nursing. Rejoice with us that 46 nursing students committed their lives to Jesus this year!

Many chapters reported that their NCF group provided much needed support for them. One student said that her chapter was “a place where everyone belongs.” I praise God that NCF groups offer a welcoming community for many in nursing school.

Find out more about how we have seen God at work this year through the 2016-17 Ministry Highlights. We have an even bigger vision for growth in 2017-18 and we’re trusting God to provide more staff, training materials, and funding to advance the good news of Jesus Christ in nursing.

To end our fiscal year strong, we need to raise $50,000 to cover our ministry expenses. Will you prayerfully consider giving a year-end gift of $100, $200, or $500 before June 30? Your gifts will help us prepare for expansion and growth in the year ahead!

It is a privilege to be a part of God’s work transforming lives. You are a part of this ministry through your prayers and financial partnership.

Thank you!

• Pray that more nurses and students will follow Christ whole-heartedly and reflect his love in nursing.
• Thank God for our devoted staff team and pray that our 2016-17 expenses will be met by June 30.
