This week we pray for Daniel & Sandi McDougall who serve at UVic with International Student Ministries Canada.
Daniel and Sandi McDougall joyfully work to introduce Christ and to mentor His love among three distinct sets of people at UVic who come to Canada from all corners of the globe: international students, graduate students, and visiting professors & researchers. Their focus is two-fold: befriending the newcomer (especially through conversations over food) and Bible Exploration. Students and scholars meet Jesus, unpack issues that help dismantle their barriers to faith, and encounter the God who loves them and has a place of significance for them.
Please pray for Daniel and Sandi as they walk alongside international and graduate students at UVic, many of them discovering Jesus for the first time. Pray especially for students about to enter a time of transition (eg. graduation, co-op work terms, further studies elsewhere, returning to their home culture) and that they would continue to be met by Jesus and his people wherever they go. Pray too for the McDougalls as they release their 'baby birds' to the larger world out there and as they continue to embrace newly arrived hatchlings at UVic.
