    • CBS Service Marketplace 2015
    • This is an ACE where we auction services (e.g. food deliveries, making plushies, music lessons, cleaning etc.), and all proceeds will go to a charity to be determined. This is an opportunity to serve one another while developing a heart for our community and world. To buy a service, bidding will begin at the starting price (determined by the service provider) and increase until the number of people left standing is equal to the maximum number of people who can receive the service. If there are more than the maximum number left standing, a random number generator will be used to determine who gets the service. If you plan on buying services, please bring at least $5 to deposit on the night of. We will also be using Venmo as payment (https://venmo.com/i/Chinese-BibleStudy). If you’d like to provide a service, please send a ppt slide with the following information to CBSservicemarketplace@gmail.com by Wednesday March 11th:
      • name of the service
      • short description of service

Lectures will be given by guest speakers and videos, and cover topics ranging from the Mission Spirit & Discipleship to the Islamic culture. By learning about Christianity from a global perspective and focusing on the 10/40 window, this program will give you the opportunity to challenge yourself to respond to God’s call and be a part of His vision.

When Your Faith for Fishing Is Small

Song of the Week

Memory Verse of the Week

Blessed is the man
    who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
    nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and on his law he meditates day and night.

He is like a tree
    planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
    and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.

(Psalm 1:1-3)

Last week: John 14:27

Prayer Requests & Praises

  • Pray for those areas once again impacted by the introduction of Ebola in Africa. Pray that Christians and non-Christians around the world will step up and to help in whatever ways they have been called to and to care for those affected by Ebola.
  • Praise and thank the Lord for the recent release of 19 Assyrian Christians. Continue to pray those held hostage by ISIS and for the ISIS organization as they continue to be a major concern throughout nations.
  • As the work this semester is starting to pile up with prelims and projects, pray that the students of Cornell will find peace in God and not in their achievements and pray for those students who do not know Him yet that God will open up their hearts and reveal Himself to them.

In Christ,

Stephen & Jevon
