1 IFES Daily Prayer Guide DEC JAN 2017

2 IFES is generations of students, staff and volunteers investing in the next generation. The legacy they left and continue to leave is new generations of Christian students enthused about making Christ s name known. With global student numbers forecast to expand significantly, your support is vital in reaching and discipling students, in pioneering, supporting and strengthening national movements. As you plan for the future, will you consider leaving a different kind of legacy to help future students? You can contact IFES at ifesworld.org or at the address on the back of the Daily Prayer Guide to request a legacy pack.

3 DEAR FRIENDS Reflecting on the spiritual peace which Christ brings, and how that can change communities, I wanted to share one of the stories we heard on World Student Day. Evans Karanja from FOCUS Kenya, Nairobi shared: Ten years ago, Kenya experienced one of the worst election violence in its history. This year, being an election year, FOCUS students and Associates were mobilized to a peace building initiative that involved prayer for the nation, Bible study on ethnicity and peace walks. The Christian students in the colleges and universities embraced this initiative and have been proactive in praying for our country. We are grateful that God has kept our country intact amidst the political turmoil, praise be to His name! Praise God with us for the witness of students in Kenya who love the Prince of Peace. Thank you for your prayers for students to come to and grow in relationship with Christ. Jill Bain IFES Supporter Relations
