I thank you for the chance this semester to study abroad, and to come and see this beautiful culture you’ve created! You’ve filled me with a wanderlust for many years now, preparing me to one day be a missionary, and I pray that you will use this time to confirm my calling.
Please help me to take this semester to create many new, deep friendships – both with ACU friends, as well as people in and around Oxford – as well as to continue growing in You. I pray for openness, flexibility, and courage in my heart as I begin this semester. Let everything I do here glorify you.
