Have you met Tu Lor Eh Paw? She's a business major and @actsix_twincities scholar, a Karen refugee, and first-generation college student. She lost four family members when she was growing up in Myanmar and didn't learn English until age 11. Now she's shattering stereotypes and plans to build a school in her rural hometown someday.

@bobgoff is a “larger than life” figure, but when you spend time with him you realize he genuinely cares about people. Among the ways he poured himself out at @bethelumn yesterday, he spent an hour standing on stage signing books and taking photos. The last person in line got a smile as big and joyful as the first. Thanks, Bob! See you next time. #bobgoff #lovedoes #everybodyalways #love #jesuslove #jesuslovehasnolimits

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. Whether you grew up in a church tradition which recognized Lent or not, we hope you will come to chapel to enter into this gateway to Lent through prayer, worship, and the Word. Lent is 40 precious days to open ourselves up to God, to examine ourselves in the presence of the One who created us, knows us, and loves us. We are dust, and to dust we shall return, but with God’s grace we can learn to live this life more fully, embracing our sinfulness, allowing God to transform us. #AshWednesday #Lent #RememberWeAreDust #Jesus #JesusPaidItAll #JesusPaidItAll

Appalachia Mission Trip | Bethel University

Bethel University community! The Appalachia spring break team has opened two spaces to additional team members we would like to fill in the next week or so. We would like to find one male and one female. Do you know a transfer student or new student this January/Spring looking to get actively involved with a ministry team growing in love for God, each other, and God's world? This is a great opportunity.

A description of the trip can be found here: https://www.bethel.edu/christian-formation/trips/appalachia. The ministry in West Virginia is our longest-running partnership (over 25 years). Mustard Seeds & Mountains is our host/partner. God is doing great things in McDowell County through the prayers, cell groups, and home repair projects of MS&M. Our teams consistently return to Bethel having been challenged and inspired my MS&M to do two things: A) stay in God's Word, and B) follow Jesus into closer proximity to people in poverty.

We would ask these new team members to invite family and friends to support the team in prayer and contribute to some of the financial expenses related to the trip, but we have some assistance we can provide.

I would ask that you simply forward this email to students coming to mind. Their next step is to prayerfully consider this and complete the SMP Application: https://www.bethel.edu/christian-formation/trips/mission-trip-application .

Email Pastor Matt Runion with any questions at [email protected].

Bethel students will learn about poverty facing the Appalachian region of the U.S.
