From Vicky Ayling

We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. - 1 John 1:3

I love how this verse reflects that the Christian faith invites people into community - with each other and with the triune God. University can feel like a really lonely place, so being on staff serving a club that helps students to make friends and journey together through questions of faith and spirituality feels very special. 

Praise and Prayer Requests 
We have been so blessed with some new students joining the Navigators community! They have brought fresh energy to the group and their love of the community is so rewarding to see. Join us in thanking God for growing our family!

Praise God that the Sub-Zero Beach Party and Potluck Smackdown successfully helped students get to know each other in a positive and encouraging atmosphere! 

In Bible studies this semester we are exploring the letters of 1 and 2 Peter. Please pray for Shelby and I as we facilitate the women's discussions on Tuesday afternoons! 

In late April some of our students will be setting off for Basecamp 2024 in British Columbia. This is an opportunity to gather with students from Navigator groups across Canada! We are so thankful for the students' enthusiasm for this trip and are excited to see them Rest, Grow and Play. Pray for blessing over the organisation and coordination of travel

The semesters pass so quickly and it will soon be Reading Week, please pray for safe travels and good rest for the students

And finally… 
For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God.
