As we all know, the Corona Virus has made life interesting this year.
This is certainly the case for CMU students. Just as they left for Spring break, social distancing not only became a thing - it became a mandated norm. They were supposed to be gone for one week of break, but were given a second week so the university could prepare to convert all their classes to online.
This next Monday, they return to classes - but don't leave their homes. They are facing a confusing time. Not only do they have to adjust to this new format, they are uncertain of what will happen over the course of this semester and how will it affect the plans they made for their education. Please keep them in your prayers as they try to figure things out.
We are working on moving to an online format also. We have developed ways to meet, pray and worship through online resources - and currently are discovering ways to meet and play games in the same way. We are reaching out to new students that have engaged with us online, trying to make new connections. The normal aspects of this ministry are moving forward in abnormal ways. (pray for us).
A big concern we have is for students that are living in the dorms. Many of the students can't work from home. They are in close proximity to other students, so they are at a higher risk for infection - and they are also away from home, so they are away from their strongest support group. Some of these students still have physical needs that need to be met (enough food, etc..) Please pray for these students. I will put updates of needs that might arise as we go forward.
A final note. Since we are placing more material on line, we encourage you to engage with it. Share your thoughts and show these students your hearts. We are connected on Facebook at: Christian Student Fellowship@CMU and Western Colorado Christian Campus Ministry
We are also on instagram at CSF_CMU
And we are working on a youtube site. Get involved, we need you still.
