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. 

Celia and her husband James attend the Newtown morning service.

The latest update from Celia
There is only this week and next week to go until students hit stuvac and exams! Then...a hybrid conference of Next Steps and EU Missions is taking place - IMAGINE. 

I have been working with a team of enthusiastic students who have put together a day of input featuring Bishop Peter Lin, Paddy Benn and Sam, and then the following day an excursion to various multicultural areas of Sydney. The team have worked hard to shape this conference so that it continues to put the global need of the gospel before the students, while exposing them to people from the Pacific Islands, South Asia, and the Middle East as well as many others. Our aim is to meet and do the conference face to face rather than online. Please pray for all the things the team need to do to make this happen smoothly and in a COVID safe way.
Lord of the nations, be with the team of students who are planning the IMAGINE Conference. Help them to negotiate all the details and to provide a day where the EU may see how large the harvest field is across the globe. May the presenters help move the students forward in their thinking about how they can play their part in your global purposes.

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 the Lord for the opportunity to run the LRLR Imagine Conference, following the cancellation of usual LRLR activities: Next Steps and EU Summer Missions. Pray that this conference will encourage students to look outside of Sydney and consider how they could serve areas of the world that have less access to Jesus! Pray that the conference can go ahead in-person in a COVID safe way.

3. Pray for the EU, that God would provide more staff members to shepherd the 800+ students that are involved in the EU in some way, every year. Pray that God will raise up new leaders, especially those interested in less reached, less resourced ministry. 

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.
