University is a strategic time in a person’s life. It is a time when they can think about how to use their profession for God’s glory, or about doing further training for church-based ministry. 

Celia is working with the EU to raise up students who will make it their priority to serve God in locations where the Church is small, isolated or under pressure from Islam, Buddhism or secularism. Through our prayer, financial support and care, Celia and the EU can help release a flood of students to serve in less reached, less resourced (LRLR) parts of the world.

The latest update from Celia
This week I finished running an intensive for students who signed the less reached or the less resourced pledge. You may have heard me talk about this course before - Making Life Decisions. There were over 20 students who joined me from across all faculties. We looked at God's plans and purposes against our own and how the two compare. It was exciting that 15 of them all stayed around after the last dose for an extra hour to ask questions! What an honour and privilege. I had a great time listening to them and trying to help them along as they navigate their lives while being on the cusp of adulthood.
Heavenly Father
Continue your work amongst the lives of the students who did the Making Life Decisions course.
Under your hand may some decide to go to take the gospel outside Australia. Under your hand may
those who stay, pray care and give to their peers so that we would see a world that knows Jesus.

How can I pray for Celia?

1. Thank God that he has been providing for James and Celia, following James’ sudden unemployment earlier this year. Praise God for the generosity of your people in helping provide for the Toose family.

2. Thank God for the 65 students who signed the pledge to prayerfully consider serving the less reached or the less resourced at the EU’s recent annual conference. 200 current students have already made the pledge in the past. Pray that God will continue to help them through this pledge to work out how they can make the biggest impact they can for the kingdom of God in light of global gospel needs and their future beyond the EU

3. Thank the Lord for the students who did the recent ‘Making Life Decisions’ course. Pray that you would work in them that they may long for a world that knows Jesus and take steps under God to support that mission.

How can I give to support Celia?

The Evangelical Union has always depended entirely on the donations and giving of generous Christian people. God has always provided! The EU's Graduates Fund believes that God works in the world as each person plays their part in serving and giving, under the Lord Jesus Christ and we would appreciate your prayer and financial support.
