Here are some updates about their student ministry:
International student enrollment at Uvic is only down marginally this year – so that mission field continues
COVID is preventing large group gatherings, but Zoom calls enable continued contact with current students as well as former students now in various international locations
This spring there were a number of “graduators” who left UVIC, but Daniel and Sandi are establishing relationships with UVic newcomers, and many of the scattered former contacts are replicating their Uvic introduction to Jesus in their new locations.
Daniel and Sandi’s weekly potlucks are no longer possible, but they are now providing staples for students who are experiencing financial challenges due to limited employment opportunities over the summer, as well as providing ready make take-out meals to befriend and encourage in troublesome times.
We join in celebration with the McDougals and one of the international students who will be baptized, here in Victoria, this Sunday.
