Weekly Portraits of Calvary Life

Winter at Calvary can be lots of fun!  When it snows, there are good sledding hills close by, and, of course, a few snowball fights.  Snowmen often appear on campus after a snowstorm.  In fact, I have fond memories of helping build a huge one during my junior year at Calvary.  This week the students went ice skating at Crown Center which has become an annual winter tradition.

Students Callie Weeks and Esther McRae made a snowman on Thursday.

I helped build this massive snowman in front of the men’s dorm back in 2001.

However, winter also has a downside.  Ice is common in Kansas City, and this winter we have had several days of cold temperatures with wind chills below zero.  Snow may be fun to play in, but driving in it is not, especially if students are not accustomed to it.  Please pray for our students’ safety this winter.  This is also the time of year when colds and flu tend to hit the Calvary family.  Pray that our students, faculty, and staff will be restored to good health or avoid the “bug” all together.

Job 37:6  For to the snow He says, “Fall on the earth,” likewise to the downpour, His mighty downpour.
