We are about half way through our spring semester at USF and wanted to send an update on what we have been up to! The spring is always very full for us with a student conference, travel and a training course we do with students. Keep reading for some of our highlights so far! :)


This is the Bible study our students are doing this semester. It walks through the big story of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.

Every Spring, all of the Florida Navigator ministries gather together for a weekend long conference. We bring in a speaker (Jay Harris - a pastor from Jacksonville was our keynote speaker this year), worship together, and spend time together. It is always a highlight of the year for our students and for our kids - they love getting to see friends that live across the state. Andrew led a workshop on Rest, Anxiety and the Gospel and Sarah led one on Engaging Deeply with God. We took about 20 of our students with us!

Every year we have a different giving project that the staff and students who attend can support. This year we raised $23,000 for a staff couple who is moving to Jamaica this summer to work on a college campus there. This money came from "broke" college students and missionaries! Praise God!

Our staff and 15 students went down to Miami for 5 days during spring break. They served at a ministry called Chapman Partnership that provides support and rehabilitation to those who are homeless. Our students painted, cleaned, did yard work and Andrew even got to do some homeschool with a group of 6 year olds! It was a good few days for our students to serve and get to know each other more! Two nonbelieving students came and we were able to have conversations about Jesus with them. One of our staff was able to relate with one of them over a struggle with anxiety and open the Bible with them and show how she has found hope and peace from the Scriptures and from a relationship with Jesus! 
 

Thank you so much for your love and support. We are grateful for each one of you!
