Reaching International Students


By Pastor Glem Melo

IMG_0977Tuesday night, during the large group meeting of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF) at Purdue University Calumet (PUC), Hammond, Indiana, I was overjoyed to see my son Yanan (16) share the gospel from the “show me your glory” passage in Exodus (chapters 33 and 34) to a student from mainland China.  A MAJOR MILESTONE!  MAJOR ANSWER TO A FATHER’S MAJOR PRAYER!  Rejoicing in Christ’s grace and faithfulness!

IMG_1140Please pray that the Lord will continue to use IVCF’s Large Group Meetings and “All Nations” Bible Studies at PUC to evangelize and disciple students from China, Africa, Latin America, and other “mission fields.”

Psalm 127

1 Unless the Lord builds the house,
 those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the watchman stays awake in vain.
2 It is in vain that you rise up early
and go late to rest,
eating the bread of anxious toil;
for he gives to his beloved sleep.

3 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the children of one’s youth.
5 Blessed is the man
who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

Praise the Lord!


About New Hope

We are a community of people who believe in and live for Jesus Christ. We embrace and proclaim the Gospel as taught in the Bible and explained in the teachings of the Reformation: Salvation is by grace alone (sola gratia) because of Jesus Christ alone (solus Christus), received through faith alone (sola fide), based on the teachings of the Bible alone (sola scriptura), all for the glory of God alone (soli Deo gloria). SALVATION IS BY GRACE ALONE, THROUGH FAITH ALONE, BECAUSE OF JESUS CHRIST ALONE, BASED ON THE TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE ALONE, ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD ALONE.
