A Formal Invitation

Remember my story [3] about how much it blessed me to spend time with Richmond? Well, guess what – that opportunity is knocking FOR YOU!

As part of our Moody Scholarship program, the students have opportunities to speak at various events throughout the country. (If you’ve ever had the chance to hear them, then blessed are you! If you haven’t – I hope you have an opportunity soon.)

Summertime is especially busy for our young speakers because they have a break from school and because summer is when many events and festivals occur.

Anyway, the challenge we face this summer is to find housing for the students. We’re collecting contact information for folks who want to help by hosting one of these amazing Leadership Development Program graduates.

If you are interested in hosting a student during the summer or during an upcoming school break, or even just being a friend to them while they are studying at Moody, please e-mail me [4] at moodymasters@us.ci.org. I expect we will have two students to host for the entire summer and, hopefully, three students [5] for a few weeks at the end of the summer.

We prefer that you live in Colorado Springs or Denver because we want the students to be close to our Global Ministry Center in Colorado Springs, but if we can’t find help in our area, then we’ll have to find help somewhere else! :-)

As I mentioned before [6] – everything with the Moody Scholarship program is brand new, so we have a lot of learning to do and lots of ground to break! Please consider this your formal invitation to grab a shovel and help us break some ground.
