This is a call for some serious prayer. This is something affecting all SDA universities not just Southern. The General Conference has recently announced that they can no longer sell insurance for student missionaries who are not going out on a call directly linked with the GC. Adventist Frontier Missions has their own insurance, but most other agencies that Southern and other colleges send SMs to do not have insurance. This leaves the colleges in a legal bind because they cannot send an SM out under their name without insurance. Some universities have already said that they will now only send students on GC calls. Southern is frantically searching for alternative insurance plans. The severity of the problem though, is that with universities only sending SMs out on GC calls, the other ministries are no longer going to get the support that they depend on from SMs. Further more, I have friends that know they are being called to places, and are now faced with the dilemma of having to pick another place, or go without the name of Southern (not a good thing for a variety of reasons). Please pray for Southern and the other colleges out there that are faced with this problem. Also keep me in your prayers as I make decisions about where I am going to go. And keep our SM coordinator, Gail Moore, in your prayers.

I will be praying! That is really sad, because I know a lot of people who have benefited a lot from those experiences, and not all of them went to GC spots... so I will be sure to keep it in my prayers, as well as your decision making process.

I just received this email from our SM coordinator, Gayle Moore!

*******
PRAISE THE LORD!!

I have just received word from our insurance person at Southern that our students at Southern are fully covered under Adventist Risk Management Insurance because they COME from Southern Adventist University, regardless of where they serve. She received word from ARM so the Lord is looking out for us. Our prayers are answered.

Blessings to all of you. Thank you for your prayers.

Gayle

What an answer to prayer!

I am a little discouraged, but trying to be of good cheer. A door shut this morning that I thought was wide open. Oddly enough, last night another door opened. Sometimes though, God shuts the door that you want to be open. That is the discouraging part. I trying desperately to trust that God knows what he is doing...
