"This is great. I just can’t begin to express how much I believe this can change the world of AU. Sorry I wasn’t able to join the group today.

Just want to mention that my group, Journey Ministries, has a package ministry for students who are having difficulties (homesick, lonely, lost a loved one, sick, etc.). Please if any parent knows of a student or their child that needs one of these packages (you can even make a request for something that you would like to see go in the package and we will fulfill it if it’s at all possible), email me ( or call me, 269-471-3264.

We are also trying to change the world."

I have a friend whose son just graduated from Oakwood and she invited me to join a prayer group with her and 2 other women whose children are also at Oakwood when my son Ryan started Andrews and we pray together every Sunday just to lift our kids up while they are in school and even after they graduate. It has been a blessing......I know we all have busy schedules so trying to get together weekly may be to much maybe even quarterly or something like that just a thought.....No matter what I will add this group and our kids to my daily prayer time...."
