Minions, Vikings, and Lightning McQueen!

      The local masses descended upon the Lawn at UVA Friday night as the University’s brightest opened their doors to trick or treating families in the community! Among the mob of candy coma hopefuls waiting in lines to snag a sweet treat at each door, our little Lightning McQueen and Mommy were able to capture this photo with none other than Cav Man himself.
        Amidst the chaos of costume adorned students and families a greater sense of their need of the Gospel swept over us. Our prayer is that this forward thinking Ivy League school of the south will experience God’s love and forgiveness in radical ways.

      During our visit I was also privileged to sit down with Head Football Coach Mike London in his corner office on Sunday following a much needed win by the Hoos! His perspective that his identity is not found in his success on the football field is rare in college football and it was exciting to forecast my future involvement with the program. Over the past few years of his tenure at UVA, he and the coaching staff have experienced a lot of difficulty -- not to mention one of the nation’s toughest schedules this year. Please remember Coach London and Wide Receiver’s Coach Marques Hagans in your prayers as these men both mentioned their need for prayer while they spend their lives building men of character on the football team in a very critical environment.
     
We cannot thank you enough for the important role you play in our ministry together!
                   Praying for you,
