Tuesday lunch meeting W3011, CCIH, and housing opportunities

Hi dear ones,

What a gloriously crisp fall morning it is! Hope that you all have had time to be outside, reveling in the wonders that God has put into our world: leaves that change color, clouds that streak the sky white, a slight chill in the dawn. Many things for which to give thanks (and many people too!), but most of all I'm so thankful that we trust in and follow a God who is faithful:

His delight is not in the strength of the horse,
nor his pleasure in the legs of a man,
but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him,
in those who hope in his steadfast love. (Psalm 147: 10-11)

Christian Connections for International Health (CCIH) Conference Committee PHCF Student Representative Needed

Hi PHCFers,

Christian Connections for International Health (CCIH) will be hosting its 31st annual conference on the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus in summer 2017. PHCF is a member of CCIH, and we like to have a student representative to serve on the annual conference planning committee. We are currently seeking a JHU graduate student to fill this role.

The CCIH conference is a great place to network with Christian leaders in public health including executives from Christian health systems, NGO staff from around the world, and internship and job recruiters who are there to answer any questions you have to let you know about short and long term opportunities in global health. More information on previous conferences can be found here: http://ccih.org/ccih-annual-conference/30th-annual-conference-june-2016.html

Tuesday 12:15pm W3011 lunch meeting: waiting on God

Hi everyone,

Tomorrow (Tuesday) we will meet for lunch and fellowship at 12:15pm in room W3011. I was struck by this article on waiting over the weekend: http://www.desiringgod.org/articles/the-unwelcome-gift-of-waiting and thought it would be great to discuss and pray over the ways that God asks us to follow him to the place he will show us (a la Abram in Genesis 12). And have open time for sharing and prayer. There may also be snacks!

Keeping those of you who have finals this week in our prayers! (And feel free to come after biostats, too! It'll be good to celebrate with you ^_^)

Much love,
Teresa, for PHCF

Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find…
